Football Insider analyses three talking points from Rangers’ 2-1 away victory against Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership
Dodoo must start against Hearts
Rangers striker Joe Dodoo produced an inspired performance off the bench on Saturday against Partick Thistle.
The 21-year-old scored twice as Mark Warburton’s side came from behind to snatch three points, with the forward slotting home a 94th minute winner inside the penalty area.
Dodoo had levelled the score with a phenomenal volley as he latched on to a chipped through ball from Kenny Miller.
He has been restricted to substitute roles in every league game this season, but must be chosen to lead the line in their next game against Hearts.
The youngster provided the assist in the narrow 1-0 victory against Dundee and proved on Saturday what an asset he can be to Rangers.
Garner should be axed
Rangers forward Joe Garner was once again quiet in the victory against Partick Thistle and was replaced by match winner Joe Dodoo in the 60th minute.
The 28-year-old has been trusted by Warburton since his £1.5million move from Preston in the summer, but he is yet to justify his place in the starting XI.
He has scored just three goals in 16 appearances and offered very little attacking support on Saturday.
Harry Forrester and Miller looked much more threatening than Garner, with the latter needing to contribute more if he wants to retain his place.
Foderingham proves he is number one
Wes Foderingham reminded people against Partick Thistle of why he is regarded as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper.
The 25-year-old was under severe pressure for his position after team-mate Matt Gilks delivered some impressive performances in the League Cup, with many supporters hoping for a switch in goalkeepers.
However, Foderingham was crucial in Saturday’s victory and made several top draw saves to keep Rangers in the game.
He made two similar saves down low to his left within minutes of each other and managed to push the ball from safety and away from oncoming strikers.
The Rangers defence were vulnerable all afternoon and the goalkeeper was left helpless for the goal conceded.
