Mexican striker Eduardo Herrera was given more than a brief cameo for Rangers against Dundee on Friday night but fans absolutely slaughtered the big striker’s performance on Twitter in the 2-1 defeat at Dens Park.

Herrera came off the bench just before half-time to replace the injured Alfredo Morelos with the score still at 0-0 as Graeme Murty’s side looked to snatch three points against the Dee.

Despite having the entire second-half, the former UNAM Pumas striker couldn’t get involved in the play and looked cumbersome and awkward on a freezing night on Tayside.

Fans compared the Mexican to other Ibrox flops such as Egil Ostenstad, Fran Sandaza ad Kevin Kyle as they tore the striker to shreds.

One supporter claimed that Herrera played in a big part in the “pathetic” opening goal that Mark O’Hara scored for the hosts.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

With  Morelos possibly facing a spell on the sidelines after a heavy collision with the goalframe, Herrera could find himself thrown into the starting XI on Wednesday night when the Gers take on Aberdeen at Ibrox before travelling to Pittodrie on Sunday in a double-header against Derek McInnes’ side.

Fans will be hoping that the 29-year-old can offer more than he did against Dundee against Friday or Rangers could rack up three defeats on the spin quicker than they can record three consecutive wins.
