Rangers winger Dalcio was given another opportunity to impress in the Gers 4-2 Florida Cup win over Corinthians on Saturday night and fans have been reacting on Twitter to his display.
The on-loan winger was played in a more familiar attacking role for Graeme Murty’s side as they kept up their 100 per cent record in Florida.
After arriving from Benfica in the summer, the youngster has barely been seen in a Rangers jersey but was given an opportunity in both games Stateside to show what he can do.
After a horror show against Atletico Mineiro on Friday morning, fans weren’t expecting much but were pleasantly surprised by the winger’s performance against the Brazilian giants – with one joking he is better than Messi
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Credit when it’s due…Dalcio was busy and had a decent game.

Dalcio hadn’t appeared for the Gers since making a brief cameo in the win over Hamilton in August and the Portuguese winger has struggled to make any sort of impact at Ibrox since his summer move.
The winger managed to get an assist when he set up James Tavernier for the Gers’ fourth goal in the win over Corinthians in Florida.
Despite struggling to make the grade so far, Rangers fans have taken to the winger and turned him into a cult favourite at Ibrox in recent months.
In other Rangers transfer news, it has been reported that Gers are homing in on a top flight player who wants to move to the Ibrox.
