'Get out of my club' - Rangers fans react to one change made in Murty XI v St Johnstone
Rangers manager Graeme Murty has made one change to his starting XI to face St. Johnstone at McDiarmid Park – and Gers fans would have preferred to see Lee Wallace come back into the side rather than Andy Halliday.
Halliday has replaced Declan John in the side after the 22-year-old Welshman was reported to have picked up an injury in training on Monday.
The Gers confirmed the team news on their official Twitter account.
#RANGERSFC XI: Foderingham, Tavernier, Bates, Martin, Halliday, Goss, Docherty, Murphy, Windass, Candeias, Morelos.
SUBS: Alnwick, Alves, Herrera, Cummings, Holt, Miller, Hodson

Wallace has been out of action since September but is close to a return but the clash with Saints has come too soon for him.
The Gers put in one of their best performances of the season on Saturday against Hearts and Murty will be hoping for similar against Tommy Wright’s side.
Gers fans were disappointed to see Halliday in the starting XI with John out for the must-win clash against the Perth side.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Thought Wallace was back?

A win for Murty’s side will see them close to six points behind Scottish Premiership leaders Celtic ahead of the Hoops taking on Dundee at Celtic Park on Wednesday night.
The Gers have won seven of their eight games since the winter break to make up ground on their bitter rivals and open up a three-point lead over Aberdeen in the table.
The Light Blues won last time they were at McDiarmid Park although Wright’s side picked up a surprise win the last time the two sides met.
