'Lazy', 'Total passenger' - Rangers fans destroy senior player after win against Ross County

By Harry Sykes

Niko Kranjcar was handed his first league start of the season in Rangers’ 3-1 win against Ross County on Sunday – and fans took to Twitter to pan his display.

Kranjcar, 33, was named in the starting XI after getting the nod to replace the injured Josh Windass on the left wing.

Two first-half goals from Alfredo Morelos and a late strike from substitute Eduardo Herrera secured a notable away win for the Scottish giants.

But supporters were unimpressed by the contribution of former Tottenham and Portsmouth player Kranjcar, who played the first 64 minutes before making way for summer signing Carlos Pena.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
