Here is what

Gerrard

said about

Rangers

’ captain

James Tavernier

after their 4-0 victory over

Ross County

.

“Sensational and he deserves all the plaudits. People will talk about the assists and the goals but I judge James differently.

“I judge him on as soon as he walks through the door, what's he doing? Is he helping me set the standards? Is he professional in everything he does? Is he leading by example? Is he helping the young lads? Is he making sure everyone is at it and the culture remains strong?

“This season he has been absolutely fantastic. I can't be any more proud of him. He just needs to continue doing what he's doing because he's a massive help to me.

“It’s top level stuff. I have played with some fantastic attacking right-backs - Kyle Walker, Glen Johnson, Steve Finnan to name a few.

“Tav is right up there. The way we play really suits James. The pleasing thing for me is he is still contributing to the other side of the game. He’s pressing, he’s really aggressive, he’s winning his duels, stopping crosses.

“Our clean sheet record, to me, is just as important as James’ other numbers. Where he is right now, he needs to bottle it and stay there for as long as he can because he’s in fantastic form.”
