James Tavernier is aiming to help Rangers lift trophies this season after not winning a major trophy since 2011.

The Gers face Motherwell in the League Cup semi-final and Tavernier wants to add to the club’s Trophy Room.

Tavernier was part of the side who lost the Scottish Cup final to Hibs in 2016 and has played in semi-finals at Hampden before but is yet to lift a major trophy since joining in 2015 from Wigan.

“There is only one reason why you move to a club of this size and that is trophies,” Tavernier told The Evening Times.

“You walk past the Trophy Room and see the history this club has and you want to win as well. There is nothing worse than going through the whole season and you win nothing.

“It is definitely an aim to win trophies and we have got to put in a really good performance against Motherwell to take that next step.

“It is only when you start playing here and you look around that you understand the history and it all comes together.

“You have had some great days here, with the likes of Gazza and Laudrup, and we want to be a team that starts to bring silverware back to Ibrox.”
