Joe Dodoo inspired Rangers to a 2-1 Scottish Premiership win over Partick Thistle on Saturday – and fans took to Twitter to pay tribute to the striker.

The striker scored both goals – his first in league competition for the Gers – after Mark Warburton’s side had slipped to a goal behind at Firhill.

Dodoo’s opening strike was a superbly finished volley after 81 minutes to level the scores and he slotted in the winner four minutes into stoppage time to break the hearts of Partick.

Rangers fans were delighted with the contribution of summer signing Dodoo, 21, whose only two previous goals for club had come in the League Cup.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The win lifts Rangers to second in the Scottish Premiership table and narrows the gap on leaders Celtic to eight points.

It gives them a shot in the arm ahead of a trip to Tynecastle to face Hearts on Wednesday.

Partick could end the day bottom of the table if Dundee emerge victorious later on Saturday.
