Jackie McNamara has blasted the behaviour of the Rangers fans after their actions in the away end against Kilmarnock last Sunday.

Speaking exclusively to¬†Football Insider, the former Scotland international was highly critical of the scenes following Connor Goldson’s late winner, which saw the travelling supporters cause the collapse of a roof covering a disabled section.

Goldson netted an injury-time goal to hand Rangers a 2-1 victory against Killie in their opening games of the Premiership season, sending the away end into raptures.

However, a number of fans made their way onto the pitch while others climbed onto the disabled section’s roof, resulting in one individual being left injured.

McNamara says he knows what it is like to see a last-minute winner hit the back of the net but insisted the behaviour of the supporters was out of order.

McNamara told Football Insider: “At the end of the day, you’re celebrating there which all fans do but obviously there, you’ve seen them on top of the disabled bit. It shouldn’t be happening between the stewards and the fans. It shouldn’t get to that.

“It is a massive thing when you score so late on, it’s an important win but obviously safety’s important.”

Rangers will see domestic football return to Ibrox this weekend with the visit of Hibernian, the Edinburgh-based side also coming away victorious on the opening weekend with a 1-0 win over St Mirren.

In other Rangers news, it can be REVEALED that the club are closing in on the signing of a Premier League forward.
