Lee Hodson delivers Twitter verdict after Rangers defeat

By Dominic Toner

Lee Hodson revealed his disappointment on Twitter after Rangers’ defeat on Sunday.

Rangers were beaten 1-0 by Celtic in the Scottish League Cup semi-final, meaning their Old Firm rivals will play Aberdeen in the final.

Forward Moussa Dembele scored the winning goal in the 87th minute, after converting a cross from team-mate Leigh Griffiths.

Rangers were under pressure for most of the game and were limited to counter attacking their opponents.

Hodson, 25, delivered a strong performance at right-back, but the defence were finally breached late on.

The defender was preferred to first-choice James Tavernier, who was pushed forward into a midfield role against Celtic.

Hodson explained his emotions after the match but believes his side must focus on their next match.

“Gutted about today’s result, we go again Wednesday night! Fans were great today,” Hodson wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Rangers completed the signing of defender Hodson in the summer from MK Dons, after he spent last season on loan at Kilmarnock.

The defender has now made five appearances for the Scottish giants and is continuing to challenge Tavernier for a regular starting position.

Rangers face St Johnstone in their next match and will hope to pick up three points in the league meeting.
