Rangers fans react on Twitter to McKay display v Celtic

By Dominic Toner

Barrie McKay played 78 minutes for Rangers on Sunday – and the club’s supporters were highly critical of his performance on Twitter.

Rangers were beaten 1-0 by Celtic in the Scottish League Cup semi-final, meaning their Old Firm rivals will play Aberdeen in the final.

Forward Moussa Dembele scored the winning goal in the 87th minute, after converting a cross from team-mate Leigh Griffiths.

Rangers were under pressure for most of the game and were limited to counter attacking their opponents.

McKay, 21, struggled to impose himself on the game and was eventually substituted off for attacker Joe Dodoo late on.

Rangers fans were displeased with the youngsters display and believe he should be dropped from the starting XI in the future.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

McKay has been a regular part of Mark Warburton’s side this season and made 16 appearances in all competitions.

The winger has scored one goal and contributed eight assists, but failed to recreate any form against Celtic.

He recently earned his first international cap for Scotland in May and made a substitute appearance in a friendly against France.

Rangers face St Johnstone in their next match and fans are urging Warburton to drop McKay.
