'Coward', 'Pish' - Rangers fans react to midfielder display against St Johnstone
By Matt Bullin
Rangers fans were divided on Jon Toral’s performance as their side beat St Johnstone 2-1 at McDiarmid Park on the final day of the season.
Kenny Miller and Toral both netted as the Gers took a 2-0 lead before Graham Cummins pulled one back 15 minutes from time.
Toral’s goal which came after a fine weaving run from James Tavernier shortly into the second half, was his third in 15 games since joining the club on loan from Arsenal in January and he put in one of his best performances in a Rangers shirt.
The central midfielder spent the earlier half of the season on loan at La Liga side Grenada, where he made six appearances in all competitions.
The win meant the Gers bounced back from a Wednesday night defeat to Aberdeen and finished the season with a win.

Good second half anyway, Toral and Windass proved me wrong for once. Story of our season though, should have easily scored more.
