Rangers striker Ryan Hardie has enjoyed a blistering start to his loan move with Livingston after scoring his fourth goal in as many games for the West Lothian side.
Hardie scored twice on Saturday to secure a 4-1 win for Livi over Scottish Championship leaders St. Mirren to keep David Hopkins’ side in the hunt for a playoff place.
The 20-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and will no doubt be hoping his displays at the Tony Macaroni Arena will help him win a new deal at Ibrox.
Gers fans were delighted to see the Scottish Under-21 international hit the net – with one Rangers fan saying he “cant be any worse” than Mexican striker Eduardo Herrera.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
Ryan Hardie deserves a proper chance at us! Can’t be any worse than Herrera can he?

I've always said Ryan Hardie should be given a good chance at Rangers. He'll come good

2 goals for Ryan Hardie so far today… wonder if he’ll ever get a chance with us.

I said Ryan Hardie was probably done at Rangers unless he goes to Livi and singlehandedly drags them up from the Championship.
And he's just put Livi 2-1 (both goals) up at home to league leaders St Mirren.
Certainly giving himself every shot to come back.

Hardie first made the breakthrough under Ally McCoist but has failed under successive managers to win a regular first-team place at Ibrox and had a number of stints away from Ibrox on loan.
Hardie and Gers team-mate Jordan Thompson are both on loan at the Tony Macaroni Arena until the end of the season as the Lions look to earn a playoff spot at the end of the season.
The 20-year-old has made 17 appearances for the Gers since first breaking into the side in 2014.
