'Liability' - Rangers fans slam mainstay after win against Aberdeen
Rangers defeated Aberdeen 2-1 at Pittodrie on Sunday afternoon to take second place in the Scottish Premiership – but Gers fans were left raging at the performance of goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.
Goals from Danny Wilson and Josh Windass had the Gers 2-0 up before Frank Ross’ fantastic free-kick gave the Pittodrie side a lifeline.
The win was the second time in four days that Graeme Murty’s side had come out on top against the Dons as they turned a six-point deficit around to overtake the Reds in the Premiership standings.
Foderingham had had little to do for long spells of the game at Pittodrie before being beaten by Ross’ free-kick – which was a fantastic effort – however some Rangers fans think the Ibrox shot-stopper should have done better with it.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Foderingham always positions himself wrong at free kicks. Same for lafferts goal at murrayfield????

Rangers were able to hang on after Ross’ strike and secure a valuable three points in their quest to close down Celtic at the top of the table.

Foderingham has been a mainstay for the Gers since signing and has made 111 appearances since moving north from Wigan Athletic in 2015.
The 26-year-old recently signed a new contract to keep him at Ibrox until 2020.
Interim manager Murty is expected to have led the side for the last time in the win over Aberdeen with a replacement for Pedro Caixinha expected to be confirmed imminently by the Ibrox giants.
