'Like watching Durrant', 'Future captain' - Rangers fans loved this tweet from Ibrox ace
Rangers temporarily closed the gap at the top of the Scottish Premier League on Saturday to six points with a 2-0 win against Hearts.
Goals from January loanees Jamie Murphy and Russell Martin gave Graeme Murty’s side maximum points at Ibrox.
But it was the performance of another winter arrival, Greg Docherty, that had supporters of the Light Blues excited on social media.
After the game, the midfielder took to social media to give his insight into the win on his Twitter account and the Gers faithful were quick to respond.
Big win and performance from the team yesterday on my first start at Ibrox. Hopefully many more to come! ????⚪️???? pic.twitter.com/sZdaNVOJfL

The 21-year-old put on a commanding display in the centre of the park where he took full control of the game from the off.
And this after a tricky start to his time with the Gers, where his own manager had said that he was trying too hard to impress and needed to relax.
It would seem that the former Hamilton Academical star has taken note of his boss’ words from this victory with supporters calling him a captain in the making.
One fan said that his display was, ‘Like watching Durrant at his peak,’ while another added, ‘Keep that up n you’ll be a Gers legend soon enough Greg.’
Rangers’ form at Ibrox has become a talking point, with the likes of former captain Barry Ferguson bemoaning their inconsistency at home and questioning where they could be if results had been better in Glasgow.
Here is what Rangers fans had to say about the midfielder in response to the player’s Tweet:
Greg. You were outstanding yesterday. The biggest compliment I can give you is that it was like watching Durrant at his peak. Keep up the good work ????????????
