Rangers fans react hilariously as Hamilton post player injury picture after eight-goal thriller
Rangers fans have reacted hilariously after Hamilton posted a photo of midfielder Lewis Ferguson’s cut shin following a 50/50 challenge with David Bates on Sunday.
The Lanarkshire side’s official Twitter account posted the Tweet showing the player’s leg with cuts where Bates’ studs had made contact.

Ferguson picked up a booking in the challenge after the Gers defender appeared to come off worse in late stages of the Ibrox giants’ 5-3 win.
Rangers fans had no sympathy for the nephew of Gers icon Barry Ferguson and son of former Gers midfielder Derek after the collision between the pair – with one fan mimicking Hamilton’s original tweet, saying “this is a plaster.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Bates wins ball, Ferguson slides in sideways & both players end up colliding……What's the controversy here?

One does not simply enter a 50/50 with master bates.

The Gers won after Josh Windass’ hat-trick and strikes from Alfredo Morelos and Jamie Murphy.
The win takes Graeme Murty’s side into second place in the Scottish Premiership on goal difference after Aberdeen’s loss on Saturday to Hibs.
Next for the Light Blues is the visit of Hearts to Ibrox next Saturday as the Gers look to consolidate second in the table and make up ground on leaders Celtic.
Sunday’s win was the Gers sixth in seven games since the winter break as they try to find some consistency after a stop-start season – including sacking Pedro Caixinha – although since the January transfer window closed, the Ibrox giants look to be a much better side than the one which finished 2017.
