Rangers defender James Tavernier has insisted that his side are not thinking about their top-of-the-table clash with Hibernian later in the month.

The Gers, who will face Greenock Morton tomorrow, are currently top of the Scottish Championship table with 40 points from 15 outings, three ahead of second-placed Hibernian.

After tomorrow’s game, Rangers will travel to Falkirk on 19th December before taking on Hibernian at Ibrox nine days later.

And Tavernier, whose side have dropped just four points in the league so far this season, underlined the importance of Rangers attaining positive results from the two games prior to the important fixture against Hibernian.

“If we win this weekend then we will have three more points so Hibs just have to concentrate on themselves and we’ll do the same”, the right-back explained to the club’s official site.


“When the game does come then we know is it a must win game and it will extend that gap between us and them but the games in between that are important because anything can happen.

“I don’t even look at their results but I’m hearing they’re on a great run but we have been on one ourselves and it’s going to be a good game that day.

“We totally forget about where Hibs are, if we concentrate on our game then we don’t need to worry about anyone else in the table.”

Tavernier, who joined Rangers from Wigan Athletic in the summer, has thus far amassed 22 appearances in all competitions for the Scottish giants, netting 10 times.

The 24-year-old managed to find the back of the net in the corresponding fixture with Morton in September.
