'Out his depth', 'Never a Rangers man' - Gers fans slam midfielder display v Dundee
Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty has quickly become a favourite of the Gers support – but they were not at all happy with his performance against Dundee on Saturday.
The midfielder struggled to influence the game before being substituted after an hour as Gers boss Graeme Murty introduced Andy Halliday.
With an Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final next up for the Light Blues, Gers fans were less than impressed with the 21-year-old’s performance in the 4-0 win over Neil McCann’s side.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Halliday was better than docherty never thought I would say that ????

Strange game. Didn’t play all that well for much of it but pushed on after the second goal. Good to have McCrorie back. Midfield of Dorrans & Docherty though was questionable.

Agree mate keeps it simple.. more structure than Docherty .. he runs all over the place leaving gaps as where haliday picks it up and moves it .. keeping it simple.. played better when he came on

Docherty is never a Rangers

Dorrans needs to be playing in a more advanced position. Docherty’s work rate has been good but we need a much improved 2nd half.

Andy Halliday our best midfielder today, by a country mile.

The Scotland Under-21 joined the Gers from Hamilton in January and made a bright start to his Ibrox career but has been off the boil a little in recent games as the Light Blues have strugged to pick up wins.
Docherty will be hoping his performance doesn’t take him out of contention for a place in Murty’s starting XI next weekend with the likes of Sean Goss and Jordan Rossiter potential replacements.
