Rangers ace Barrie McKay was dropped to the bench against Aberdeen – and the club’s supporters were mainly pleased with the decision on Twitter.

Pedro Caixinha has decided to make two changes for the important league fixture against Aberdeen on Sunday.

Jon Toral and Kenny Miller have come into the side, while McKay and Halliday have dropped out.

McKay, 22, has been a regular feature in the starting line-up so far this season, but has been left out of a match which their top two hopes depend on.

Rangers fans voiced their opinion on the winger being dropped and most feel that it was justified.

Here is a selection of their messages:

Rangers are currently 12 points behind Aberdeen and will need a victory if they stand any chance of finishing in second this season.

Caixinha’s side look set for a place in the Europa League, but were desperate to finish at the top-end of the table on their return to the top flight.

McKay’s axe may come as a surprise to people has he has started the previous 16 consecutive matches in the Scottish Premiership.

The right winger was a popular player under Mark Warburton, but it seems he is yet to fully impress new boss Caixinha.

He has had a mixed season so far for the Gers, scoring four goals and supplying 11 assists in 40 appearances.

McKay is blessed with great pace and some skilful trickery, but is often criticised over his end product.
