Rangers fans react on Twitter as attacker misses Celtic clash
By Will Butcher
Rangers fans have questioned what else Joe Dodoo can do to earn a place in Pedro Caixinha’s starting line-up after being left out to of the side to face Celtic.
Dodoo, 21, has starred as a substitute in the Gers’ last two outings, scoring in the 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie before impressing in the 2-0 win over Partick last weekend.
The former Leicester striker has only started two Scottish Premiership matches this season despite making 16 appearances in the league, with competition in the final third aplenty.
The likes of Martyn Waghorn, Joe Garner and Kenny Miller are all competing with the summer signing for a place in Pedro Caixinha’s attack.
But Portuguese boss Caixinha has made just two changes to his side, bringing Andy Halliday and Joe Garner into his starting eleven to face their bitter rivals.

Would have gone for Dodoo rather than Garner, he is a red card waiting to happen.

Wes plays, that's excellent. Halliday in for Total, not sure why. Would have started Dodoo too. Whatever the team, come on Rangers. Do it.

Dodoo has scored three Scottish Premiership goals since his move north of the border, as well as supplying two assists and could be introduced as a substitute later in the match.
