Rangers defender James Tavernier has been linked with a move to the Premier League club Everton. The 26-year-old defender signed a new deal at the club recently, which runs till 2019. However, having not played more than a handful of games this season, he will be frustrated and might consider making a move out of Ibrox with Everton reportedly interested in him.

The Toffees have had a rather underachieving season. They were bought over by ambitious owner Farhad Moshiri last year who wasted no time in spending lavishly at Merseyside. The rich owner bought in world class players and Ronald Koeman was tasked with managing the side.

The Dutchman failed to get their act together and was subsequently sacked. His replacement Sam Allardyce has done decently well but is still way under Moshiri’s required level. It is being reported that Everton are now interested in making further changes to their squad by bringing in talents like Tavernier.

As for Rangers, they have had a half decent season in the top flight of Scottish football this season until things were turned over rather drastically by Celtic. A 4-0 defeat to the Hoops in the semi-finals followed by a 5-0 thrashing by Celtic again ended their hopes of any trophies this season.

They parted ways with coach Pedro Caixinha long back and their interim boss Graeme Murty has just been sacked. This has put the position of most players in the club at jeopardy.

“He will take some time to consider his options, which include returning to his role at the Rangers academy,” said the Glasgow club.

“Rangers are grateful to Graeme, who did not hesitate when asked last October to become interim manager after the departure of Pedro Caixinha, and then, at the turn of the year, when he was offered the role as manager until the end of the season.

“Graeme has had to contend with difficult and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner.”

This means that Rangers are set to bring through a series of changes in their squad over the summer. Whether it will be for the better or worse remains to be seen. However, the Gers should also be careful as to how many players they will axe. A wholesale change in the team might not be necessary as it would take even longer for the new boss to settle in and develop the chemistry. They might just do well in keeping a long-term player like Tavernier for now.
