Rangers assistant manager Gary McAllister has declined to comment on who will be Rangers' next penalty taker.

The Gers head to Dingwall to face Ross County on Wednesday in a night of Premiership fixtures hoping to pick up three points and close in on Celtic who face St Mirren.

James Tavernier has been getting tough criticism after recent costly high-profile mistakes, including missing another penalty during the 2-1 win over Motherwell last weekend.

He also made errors in the Europa League defeat to Young Boys and in the 1-1 draw at Tynecastle against Hearts.

Some fans have been calling for the clubs’ top strikers Alfredo Morelos or Jermain Defoe to take over the captains’ duties as the penalty taker.

However, McAllister insists Tavernier has the full backing of the club and the manager.

He said: "From the minute we arrived here Tavernier has been very robust, he has been available for almost every game and training session, he has had some criticism but he will come through it and we fully trust the guy.

"He has our full backing. He is a top player. But I will not be telling Ross County who is taking our penalties I'm afraid!

"The situation has been spoken about obviously but I am not giving anything away. Time will tell."

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has also previously called for fans to back him during his form dip.

He said: “I don’t think you can doubt James’ character. He knows that in the last couple of weeks, he’s in the firing line.

“I’d like the crowd to help him a bit more. Sometimes when it’s tough and you’re not at your best, you need your crowd to be with you rather than against you.”
