Rangers Identify Replacement for James Tavernier Amid Transfer Exit Rumors

Rangers full-back James Tavernier has been linked with a move away from Ibrox this summer, with several clubs reportedly interested. According to Rangers Review journalist Chris Jack, if Tavernier does leave, Dujon Sterling is the frontrunner to take over the vacant right-back position.

Sterling, who arrived on a free transfer from Chelsea last year, primarily played as a right-back during loan spells with other clubs. However, manager Philippe Clement utilized him in various roles throughout the season, including central midfield, left-back, and even as an attacker.

With Jack suggesting academy prospect Adam Devine is unlikely to be ready for a back-up role at this stage, Sterling’s versatility makes him the most viable option within the current squad. While there have been reports of interest in young Arsenal defender Reuell Walters, it seems more likely Sterling will be handed the starting role if Tavernier departs.
