You have admit though it’s the most nonsensical post ever. A pass earned him the captaincy? Christ i think I preferred Raymond Domenech’s system of using astrology to pick his teams :D
I see a spark i feed it it's becomes a flame. I feed that flame and it becomes a fire. I feed that fire and it becomes a roaring blaze.

Cus D'Amato told a 12 year old Mike Tyson he would be world champion the minute he first walked through his door. Psychological football and boxing are similar. Footballers could learn a lot from Cus.

What is it about captain Tav that deserves such admiration?
He leads by example, he might be error prone from time to time but he never hides, he never turns down the chance to take responsibility of any situation and always looks to make things happen.

He gets the ball and he tries to be productive with it without fail, the players default to giving it to him when we are devoid of any other idea.

He is a leader, he just isn't the typical Scottish shouty type so people reject him.

I'm working on a thread...Hagi the new Kent? You can guarantee the same attitude towards Hagi as we've seen for Kent this season...if it doesn't happen automatically he'll be in the bin.

Where's the admiration when all you are doing is laughing at the notion Hagi would be better?

How well we done with Hagi in the team?
im not laughing at the notion. I was staring in my opinion I’d feel more confident with Hagi than Tav as captain. You were the one who laughed. I merely asked what are Tavs credentials that makes him a better option than Hagi.

If you have read the thread you will have saw I already stated Hagi is not the answer but between the two I’d be giving Hagi it. Tav has already proved he is not the man for the job.

Hagi will 100% get the same abuse that Kent is now at some point.

That's a devastating retort...you are on fire mate.

What's our win ration since Hagi arrived?
The thread was discussing Hagi as captain, you have came on and had a go at a couple of posters without even looking to discuss the topic. The same as Tavs I’d imagine.

You better tell the manager then...you know that guy in your avatar...

He’s not a leader mate. The things you listed I would expect if any Rangers player.

We need a Scottish defender or mid as captain to influence referred. You know Greig, Gough Barry. And Jacks not good enough. Wish Naismith was ten years younger as there's nothing else out there. It has to be a Scot

Well we haven't gotten it from anyone else in god knows how long.

As I said, he is a leader, just not the stereotypical point and shout captain that's historically prevalent across British football

I think he is mentally weak mate and if that’s our leader what does it say about the rest of the squad.

I think the mantle has weighed him down and caused his performances to dip significantly. Let him concentrate on doing his job without the added responsibility and I think it would be for the benefit of him and the team.

Tav is not a captain because it doesn't make him better. He's a very good good right back. Big fan, but we need someone who will grow by being captain.

This thread is going off track slightly.

Only way to get it back on track is by posting pictures of Polsters wife!

He's not mentally weak, he's gone from seasons of humiliation against Celtic and in Europe to leading us to victory on both fronts, a mentally weak person doesn't do that.

You can offer criticism on him as a player but that's bordering on out of order

Doesn't it? Last season was his best with us by far and it was his first full season with the armband.

I get that he's been up and down this season but that's to be expected in a 50+ game season when we can't even take him off for half an hour when we're 5-0 up

Tav was once happy with a draw away to aberdeen. Rangers captains don't think that way. I like him as a player. For the past 2 years things have fell apart. We need a change of energy and one not so weighted by our recent past.

You say you like radical thinking. Well Hagi being captain is that.

I can see where you’re coming from OP. However I wouldn’t be making him club captain, to quote Gerrard I’d have him as “an unofficial captain” in the way the Gerrard had said of Halliday.

Ianis showed that night against Braga that when the going gets tough he’ll puff out his chest and take control. He’s going to do just fine at Rangers, I’m sure of it the boy is special
