'Hopeless', 'A disgrace' - Rangers fans fume over first-half display of one player v Aberdeen

Rangers fans have taken to social media to criticise their own midfield man John Windass.

The 23-year-old was booked early on in the first-half against Aberdeen at Pittodrie for a blatant dive in an attempt to win a penalty.

Windass burst forward after some initial good play but went down without being touched by Aberdeen goalkeeper Joe Wright.

The incident didn’t impress Rangers fans one bit and they let the player know in no uncertain terms.

Here are some of the best reactions from Rangers fans on Twitter:

Windass has been a regular for Rangers this season, under the management of firstly Pedro Caixinha and then caretaker manager Graeme Murty.

He has scored four goals so far this season in 18 appearances, but he hasn’t always been a favourite of the Rangers support.

Rangers and Aberdeen are playing each other for the second time in a week, with the Gers having the chance of going above Aberdeen into second place in the Scottish Premiership league table if they win today.

Rangers won the first game easily 3-0, and are 1-0 up at the break in the second clash.

Speculation is rife that Rangers are set to approach Aberdeen after today’s game about making Derek McInnes the next permanent manager at Ibrox Park.

McInnes has long been though of as the favourite to take over from the sacked Pedro Caixinha, but it has taken the Ibrox board almost two months to finally make the move for their man.
