Tav­ernier ad­mits Span­ish break came at the right

Evening Times - - SPORT -

JAMES TAV­ERNIER ad­mits the win­ter shut­down came at just the right time for him as he gears up for the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

The Ibrox cap­tain has been a key part of Steven Ger­rard’s side in re­cent months and has played 37 com­pet­i­tive matches so far this term.

Ger­rard put his squad through their paces at a train­ing camp in Tener­ife last week and Tav­ernier said: “It was def­i­nitely good to get a break; I would hold my hands up and say for me that was much needed.

“Ev­ery­one needed to go away, recharge the bat­ter­ies, freshen up the minds and come back all fresh for the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

“I felt really strong in the Celtic game and even after it I wasn’t too sore then I got a week off. Now we are grad­u­ally get­ting back into it and get­ting ready for Cowdenbeath.”
