Ajax video turns captain Tav into a European laughing stock

Image for Ajax video turns captain Tav into a European laughing stock

Four days after his (45 minute) Champions League debut James Tavernier is the laughing stock of Amsterdam.

Seven years after his £200,000 move from Wigan Athletic the utility man wore the armband of dignity onto the pitch at the Johan Cruyff Arena then got the runaround alongside his outclassed team-mates.

There were no opportunities for Tav to showcase his crossing ability, penalty kick prowess or even run in at the back post for a tap in. Now it was the big boys playground with the Ibrox skipper looking like a rabbit caught in headlights.

Ajax’s third goal proved to be too much for Giovanni van Bronckhorst as he watched his skipper treated like a cone in a training ground exercise before Mohammed Kudus rattled in the third goal.

Leon King replaced Tav for the second half, Ryan Jack provided the assist for the fourth goal with van Bronckhorst having to decide whether he can put his skipper through another ordeal against Napoli on Wednesday.
