James Tavernier Issues Vital Instructions to Rangers Teammates in Light of Crucial Europa League Assertion

James Tavernier has rallied his teammates, emphasizing the need for a swifter start as they gear up to face Aris Limassol at Ibrox on Thursday, November 30. The Rangers suffered a 1-0 defeat against the Cypriot side in the reverse fixture and are determined to secure all three points in the upcoming clash to enhance their chances of advancing from the group stage.

Tavernier articulated his perspective on the crucial upcoming match: “First of all, we are looking at a clean sheet. We have looked back on Sunday – especially the first 15 to 20 minutes. We know where we need to improve. Having said that, we are always looking to improve even if we win games.”

The captain pinpointed the necessity of a faster start and heightened focus throughout the entire 90 minutes, expressing confidence that such an approach would position them favorably for victory: “We need to make a faster start and be more switched on. And if we do that, we will put ourselves in a good position for Thursday to get the three points.”

Highlighting the significance of the upcoming fixture, Tavernier acknowledged the weight of the month ahead, stating, “To be honest, it’s a massive month and a half for us. We know how big Thursday night is. We have got to take full advantage of playing at Ibrox and try and get the three points. That is the objective that everyone is working towards.”

As Rangers aim to rectify their previous setback against Aris Limassol, Tavernier’s words underscore the collective determination within the team to seize the opportunity and make a significant impact in the ongoing campaign.
