Rangers defender Lee Hodson made a rare appearance on Sunday night when he started for Northern Ireland in their 3-0 defeat by World Cup-bound Costa Rica – and Gers fans savaged the 26-year-old’s performance for his country.
Hodson played an hour and was partly to blame for one of Costa Rica’s goals as Michael O’Neill’s side finished off their tour of the Americas with a second defeat from two games.
Former MK Dons defender Hodson only managed nine appearances for the Gers last season and reminded fans why as he struggled with Costa Rica’s attackers all night in a disappointing 60-minute performance – with one fan saying he is a “dreadful defender.”
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
My god, Lee Hodson is a dreadful defender.

How does Lee Hodson still get games for Northern Ireland. I genuinely think he's the worst player I've seen in a Rangers top.

Hodson joined the Gers in July 2016 under Mark Warburton but has found first-team chances at Ibrox limited – only managing 27 in two years with the Light Blues.
With a year left on his Ibrox contract, Hodson may find himself looking for a new club this summer as Steven Gerrard takes charge and looks to end Celtic’s recent dominance of Scottish football and lift the Gers’ first major trophy since 2011.
Hodson’s former Ibrox team-mate Jordan Thompson also appeared for Northern Ireland as he picke up his second cap just days after his Gers contract ended.
