Jeff Stelling Shares James Tavernier Transfer Verdict

Jeff Stelling dismissed speculations regarding James Tavernier’s potential transfer from Rangers to an English club this summer. Stelling emphasized Tavernier’s age as a significant factor in this decision.

“At 32 years old, he’s not going to be coming south of the border, that is for sure,” Stelling affirmed during the live broadcast.

Stelling’s comments come amidst swirling rumors about Tavernier’s future, fueled by his stellar performances for Rangers. However, Stelling’s assertion suggests that any potential move is improbable at this stage of Tavernier’s career.

Additionally, football pundit Andy Townsend weighed in on Tavernier’s impact, particularly highlighting his remarkable goalscoring prowess at Ibrox.

“Some record, that’s astonishing. It’s a brilliant record. How much of a bonus that is to his team, when you’ve got someone like that in those defensive areas, and I know he can play further forward,” Townsend remarked during the broadcast. “That is a very, very good record. An amazing goalscoring record.”

Townsend’s admiration underscores Tavernier’s invaluable contributions to Rangers, further solidifying the sentiment that the right-back remains a crucial asset for the Scottish club.
