The Rangers captain James Tavernier has praised his brother, Marcus, after he played for his country's Under-20s on Monday.

The older Tavernier, who failed to win any youth caps for England, saw his younger sibling help the Three Lions to a  1-0 win against Switzerland.

Rangers' Tavernier has developed into one of the Scottish Premiership's standout players since 2016, but despite his form north of the border having led to interest from beneath it, there are still a number of right-backs - such as Kieran Trippier and Aaron Wan-Bissaka - ahead of him in England's short-term plans.

His Middlesbrough relative is under contract until 2021 on Teesside, where he has featured only sparingly this season.
