Martyn Waghorn completed just 53 minutes in Rangers’ victory over Partick Thistle – and the club’s supporters were highly critical of his performance on Twitter.
The 27-year-old was withdraw early in the second-half after failing to make an impact and with the Gers trailing 1-0 away to Partick.
However, Barrie McKay and Joe Garner scored late goals to secure a 2-1 victory and maximum points.
Pedro Caixinha’s side remain third-placed in the league table and the victory ensured European football for next season.
Rangers fans picked out the display of attacker Waghorn on social media and teared into him for failing to influence the game.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The difference in Waghorn in one season is crazy. Looked a great player last season and can't take a first touch this season 😂

Waghorn has endured a mixed season at Ibrox and has come under severe criticism at times during the campaign.
The forward helped fire Rangers up from the Scottish Championship last season with a remarkable 28 goals in just 36 games across all competitions.
However, he has found it slightly more difficult to emulate those numbers in the top flight and has rarely completed 90 minutes.
Waghorn has made 38 appearances so far in the current season and managed 15 goals in return.
Caixinha is believed to be assessing the squad ahead of next season and Waghorn will hope he has done enough to impress the manager.
