‘Absolute Madness’ ‘Not Rangers Captain Material’ Fans On Twitter Left Ruing Talisman’s Decision In League Cup Defeat

Rangers captain James Tavernier gave up his penalty duties for the League Cup final, with Alfredo Morelos being handed the responsibility by manager Steven Gerrard.

However, with the Colombian having missed the crucial spot-kick in the 1-0 defeat to Celtic on Sunday, a number of Rangers supporters on Twitter feel that Tavernier should have taken the penalty instead:

It’s very harsh to criticise Tavernier for this as Gerrard would have likely made the final call. The right-back has missed a number of penalties this season so he would have been criticised no matter what.

Of course, the captain has the ultimate responsibility in these situations, but with Morelos in such a rich vein of form, no supporter would have questioned the decision before the match.

In any case, the Gers had enough chances in open play for the penalty not to have mattered. The Light Blues will need to lick their wounds and get back to winning ways when they face Young Boys on Thursday.
