'We’re all really disappointed and fully understand the fans’ frustration,' says Tavernier

James Tavernier admits Rangers fans were justified in venting their frustrations at the end of the 1-0 defeat by Celtic at Ibrox.

Kyogo Furuhashi’s late first-half strike proved to be the winner, propelling his side four points clear of Michael Beale's team after four Premiership games, going into the international break.

The boos rang around Ibrox on the final whistle and Tavernier said: “Well, it’s justified. It’s as simple as that. We didn’t get the result the fans wanted and it’s totally justified.

“[The dressing room is] obviously disappointed. Angry and disappointed.

“You’ve just lost to your rivals. It never sits right. So we’re all really disappointed and we fully understand the fans’ frustration.

“First half, we weren’t good enough. Second half, a lot better but we’ve got to be more clinical in the final third.

“It’s obviously international week and everyone knows the lads who will be going away and we want them back fit and safe.

“But it’s down to us boys who are still going to be here to correct things, work hard on the training pitch and moving forward we have to obviously get better with what we do.”
