Rangers fans destroy summer signing after display against Hibs
By Harry Sykes
Eduardo Herrera played the second half of Rangers’ 3-2 Scottish Premiership defeat to Hibernian on Saturday – and supporters took to Twitter to destroy his performance.
Ten-man Rangers took an early lead at Ibrox through summer signing Alfredo Morelos but Neil Lennon’s side were 2-1 up at the break and scored three times in total before a late James Tavernier strike narrowed the deficit.
Despite late pressure from the home side, Hibs secured all three points and secured a notable win in front of 49,639 supporters.
A key moment in the match was the red card handed to midfielder Ryan Jack 36 minutes into the match following an overly robust tussle with Dylan McGeouch.
It prompted a tactical reshuffle from Pedro Caixinha, which meant the team switched to five at the back and Herrera was brought on along with Danny Wilson as part of a half-time double substitution that led to the exits of Daniel Candeias and Lee Hodson.

But supporters were unimpressed by the second-half contribution of striker Herrera, who failed to make much of an impact.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Herrera useless if no one is helping him is what I meant

Herrera looks cumbersome

4- Herrera should be no more than an emergency squad player

Rangers 20s play Dumbarton on Wednesday I think you can play 3 overage players. Pedro should use that for Pena Rossiter and Herrera

Looks like Rangers aren’t only against the opposition
Morelos will score plenty
Miller should be a bench player

Haha deary me! Aye. Far from impressed with Herrera. Think Peña will come good though

Pedro’s tactics in the 2nd half didn’t help either. Played a 3-4-2, sat deep & consistently went for hopeless long balls to Herrera.

Herrera was signed by Rangers for £1.5million from Mexican side Pumas this summer.
He is yet to score in three appearances for the Glasgow giants, which included a start in last weekend’s 2-1 league win against Motherwell.
