James Tavernier affirmed Rangers could make it a memorable end to the season as he says they are still fighting on three fronts after being voted the club’s Player of the Year.

Captain Ibrox will lead the Light Blues against RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena on Thursday night in the first leg of Europa League semifinal.

Then it was Parkhead on Sunday in the final Old Firm clash of the season, a game Rangers must win if they want a glimmer of hope in the title race with Celtic seemingly insurmountable with six points. leader.

The second leg against Leipzig takes place on 5 May against Scottish Cup Finals against Hearts on May 21.

Tavernier “We wanted to make it a memorable end to the season. We’ve got the Europa League semi-finals – and we want to get to the final.

“We’ve got the Scottish Cup Final and in the tournament we’ll try to win every game we can.”

John Lundstram’s stunning strike against Borussia Dortmund has been voted Goal of the Season.

“It was probably the best moment of my career – although beating Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi-final was also impressive.

“Now we have tickets to the Europa semi-finals so hopefully we can come out on top.”

Ryan Jack, who was presented with the John Greig Special Achievement Award, said: “Hopefully we can bring some silver to Ibrox and then again next season.”
