Rangers picked up a 3-1 aggregate win over Maribor in the Europa League and they are now two games away from the group stages of the competition. The fans will be expecting a similar level of performance against FC Ufa as well.
The Gers failed to create too many chances against Maribor last night but they did very well to keep a clean sheet. Rangers keeper Allan McGregor produced some stunning saves including a penalty stop to help his side over the line.
Tavernier thanked the shot-stopper for his penalty save on Twitter. The Rangers captain had gifted the late penalty to Maribor.
Here is how the Rangers fans reacted to Tavernier’s message on Twitter last night.
I’m just glad you are getting a chance to play in a real Rangers side @James_Tavernier. It’s nights like this that playing for Rangers is all about. No disrespect to the guys who helped us up through the league but it’s this level guys need to be at to were famous blue shirt
