Rangers’ boss is happy to see his key player return to form as they keep winning matches.
is more than happy with their 2-1 win against Aberdeen but he is also excited to see his key player showing his form and quality again.
“All of my front players looked dangerous today. Ryan Kent was a threat, Joe Aribo got another assist and Alfredo is back with a bang which is probably the most pleasing thing, aside from the points.
“In terms of the job he has been doing for the team he has been pretty selfless, but he has suffered a little bit, as most forwards do from time to time, with his confidence in front of goal.
“But you saw that return today. His two goals were excellent. There have been signs of it – his goal against St Mirren and his chance against St Johnstone. He’s looked a lot more dangerous.
“He deserved his man-of-the-match award and if we keep him in the place he is in now, he is going to be a huge help to us going forward.”
Tavernier missed a penalty after scoring his last nine penalties.
“It shows he’s human first and foremost.”
“He’s an excellent penalty taker for sure but he got that one wrong today. But we will still support him and back him.
“I think the result should have been more emphatic. I thought we were excellent up until 2-0. Playing against 10 men, we maintained our standards. But then I thought we got a little bit sloppy.
“We lost control at times and Aberdeen had too many good moments. We need to look at that. But I’m obviously very pleased with the outcome.”
