Rangers fans react on Twitter to experimental line-up v Celtic

By Alex Stevens

Mark Warburton has decided to experiment with his starting team for the Old Firm derby against Celtic and fans have taken to Twitter to give their views.

Martyn Waghorn drops to the bench and Lee Hodson starts at right-back, allowing James Tavernier a role on the right of the Rangers front three.

Talking before the match, Warburton explained his team selection.

“It’s a cup semi-final, there’s a final place at stake, as any player would be they’re more than motivated. We’ve trained well,” Warburton said.

“Lee’s been outstanding in training and had a very good man of the match performance for Ireland against Germany, and it’s just using some pace and energy down the right-hand side.

“It’s just using the squad, as always.”

Rangers fans on Twitter were mostly pleased with the line-up and think that there’s enough quality to beat Celtic.

A couple of fans questioned Matt Gilks starting in goal, but he hasn’t conceded a goal and has played all the other games in the cup.

Here are a selection of the fans’ tweets:
