The Rangers squad were pictured alongside the popular cartoon character as they lined up for their Florida Cup match with Atletico Mineiro.

This led to the club tweeting out a close-up with SpongeBob next to Tavernier in the line-up. It read: “Gers defender @James_Tavernier making friends with @SpongeBob before tonight’s friendly against @atletico”

Foderingham responded by quote-tweeting: “Same haircut.”

Fans also poked fun at the goalkeeper after he was mistaken for youth goalkeeper Liam Kelly.

The youngster replaced Jak Alnwick on the 60-minute mark of Rangers’ 1-0 victory, though the American commentators erroneously called him “Foderingham” for the remainder of the game.
