‘He works really hard’: Tavernier wowed by £1.5m Rangers ace who’s a ‘credit to himself’

Glasgow Rangers captain James Tavernier has praised Ibrox teammate Todd Cantwell, in conversation with Sky Sports.

The Rangers skipper says the January signing has been a “credit to himself” since joining the Light Blues.

Michael Beale’s charges came from behind after Kevin van Veen put the hosts ahead in the third minute.

Tavernier equalised on 23 minutes and Fashion Sakala put Rangers ahead in the 46th minute.

Bevis Mugabi drew Well level again just before the hour, but Cantwell got his first Rangers goal not long after.

The £1.5million man’s finish on the rebound was followed by a fierce Malik Tillman drive to seal the victory.

Well finished the game a man down after Callum Slattery was sent off for a second bookable offence on 76 minutes.

Tavernier, speaking about Cantwell, told Sky Sports: “He’s been a credit to himself since he came through the door.

“He works really hard, got his head down and is a match-winner for us.

“We’ve just got to keep giving him the ball and I’m happy he got on the scoresheet today.

“We dominated the first half but we conceded a sloppy goal. We fixed it at half-time and second half was much better.

“Just really pleased we got four goals and we could’ve got more, but pleased we got three points.”

Going from strength to strength

It’s good to see Cantwell finally get himself on the scoresheet.

He has contributed lots to Rangers since joining in January, providing more energy and dynamism to the midfield.

Another top display from Cantwell, and Bears will be hoping for more of the same in the coming weeks and beyond.

Rangers are next in action on Saturday 1 April, after the international break.
