Wesley Foderingham started in goal for Rangers against St Johnstone on Wednesday evening – and supporters were left disappointed with what they saw from him on Twitter.
The 25-year-old shot stopper replaced usual number one Matt Gilks in the net in his side’s 1-1 draw with St Johnstone at Ibrox.
Midfielder Blair Alston opened the scoring in the match for St Johnston before attacker Joe Garner equalised for Mark Warburton’s team.
However, Rangers fans were left unhappy with what they saw from Foderingham with many claiming on social media that Gilks would have saved the conceded goal.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Foderingham moved to Rangers from League One outfit Swindon in the summer of 2015.
He was a key player in the Gers’ squad last season as they won promotion back to the Scottish Premiership, but has face greater competition with experienced goalkeeper Gilks joining in the summer.
However, despite Gilks’ addition Foderingham has still played in 11 encounters for Warburton’s side this season, keeping five clean sheets.
Rangers are now sat in fifth place in Scotland’s top flight with 16 points from 10 fixtures, they are nine points behind fierce rivals Celtic and will be keen to make up the gap.
