'Absolutely shambolic', 'Dreadful' - Rangers fans annihilate January signing display v Hamilton
Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to annihilate Greg Docherty for his performance in the 5-3 win against Hamilton at the SuperSeal Stadium on Sunday.
Docherty, 21, was thrown into the team for his first start for the Light Blues in the Scottish Premiership, but just minutes later the midfielder was largely responsible for Darren Lyon opening the scoring for Accies.
The Scotland Under-21 international, who was signed from Hamilton in the January transfer window, failed to clear the ball from his own penalty area in the sixth minute, leading to Lyon slotting the ball past Wes Foderingham.
Rangers fans were really not impressed with Docherty and took to social media to slam the player during the game.
One angry Ger claimed that the midfielder was “absolutely shambolic”.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Shambles of a start. Docherty should be clearing that with conviction!

Absolutely shambolic from Docherty and John there. We're really not a comfortable team when the opposition press us high.

Docherty has made five appearances since signing for Rangers, although the bulk of them have come off the bench.
He earned his first start in the 6-1 Scottish Cup win against Ayr United last week and it seemed that Graeme Murty was willing to keep the faith in the midfielder against Hamilton.
Before his move to Ibrox, Docherty had made 25 appearances in all competitions this season for Accies.
The central midfielder scored three goals and supplied six assists in Martin Canning’s side.
