Having secured promotion back to the Premier League with victory over Derby County in the Championship Play-Off Final last Monday, all Aston Villa fans know the summer transfer rumour mill is going to kick into mental gear for the next two months but links with Rangers right back James Tavernier make no sense whatsoever.

The 27-year-old has been a success at Ibrox and he now boasts well over 150 appearances for them, and has a great goal return of 43 goals as they rose back through the Scottish levels into the Premiership, but he’s largely their nominated freekick and penalty taker so it’s a little misleading.

Tavernier has been linked over the last few years with a move to almost every club with Brighton, West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace said to have an interest to name just three, but there’s absolutely no reason to believe he could make the step up to the Premier League at his age as even Rangers fans often pan him for his performances because his goal return seems to cloud everything.

Notwithstanding the fact we have James Bree and soon to arrive Fred Guilbert already capable of filling the right back spot, I can only imagine the Daily Mail are just going with any sort of speculation right now.
