@TEnglishSport: “Tavernier - outrageous free-kick in an outrageous season.”

@SJohnsonSport: “Some free kick from Tavernier to put Rangers in front at Dundee Utd.”

@TAPundits: “Stunning free kick from James Tavernier. You could argue long range free kick territory but Tavernier thought otherwise. 17th goal of the season for a right back.”

@jamiemcnee: “Genuinely thought today was the day Tavernier wouldn’t score, what a free kick.”

@craig_killie: “I'm not sure it's an exaggeration to say that is one of the best free-kicks I've ever seen.”

@RoyalBlue1872: “Its hard to believe, but James Tavernier is only one man.”

@rachlizziexx: “At this point, James Tavernier could come take a s*** in my garden & I’d applaud his efforts.”

@JohnMcIntosh19: “Tavernier having the best individual season of any Rangers player since Barry Ferguson 02/03 and if he continues his form he likely betters it. Finally getting the respect he deserves but has went up levels.”

@CF19_: “Hilarious how s**** they are and how s**** we’ve become to let them build up that lead man that’ll be Lennons legacy letting a guy like James Tavernier serial loser lift the league and pick up player of the year in our ten in a row season.”
