'Surprised me', 'Fair play' - Rangers fans react to 20-year-old's performance v Celtic

Rangers defender Ross McCrorie had an Old Firm to forget as he was sent-off in the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat – and Gers fans were distraught by the 20-year-old’s performance but pointed the finger at manager Graeme Murty instead.

McCrorie could not get close to Celtic’s attackers before being sent-off for hauling Moussa Dembele to the ground early in the second-half.

The Scotland youth international is a big favourite with Rangers fans were quick to point the finger at  Murty for McCrorie’s performance in the Hampden horror show.

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

McCrorie returned to the starting XI for the first time in 2018 in last weekend’s 4-0 win over Dundee but simply wasn’t up to standard against Brendan Rodgers’ side at Hampden.

The result leaves the Gers with only second in the Scottish Premiership to play for in their final five games of the campaign.

Murty will need to get his side lifted for next weekend’s visit of Hearts to Ibrox as they look to finish ahead of Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen in the league.

McCrorie has made 20 appearances for the Gers since making his first-team debut earlier this season but has just returned to action after three months out with torn ligaments in his foot.

In other Rangers news, this Ibrox legend revealed he was gutted at the news of David Bates agreeing to join Hamburg.
