'Superstar', 'What a gem' - Rangers fans lose minds over midfielder display v St Johnstone
Rangers fans on Twitter have lost their minds over January signing Greg Docherty after the midfielder played a key role in the Gers’ victory over St Johnstone, in a match which the Light Blues won 4-1.
Docherty’s excellent pass set-up Josh Windass to put the Gers 2-0 ahead, which killed the game off as a contest.
The 21-year-old has been a hit with supporters since signing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Gers.
Here are some of the best reactions to Docherty’s performance against St Johnstone:

Docherty is going to be massive for us, for the team. Exactly the type of centre mid we've badly missed. Said at the weekend that it gets thrown about loosely but he is a Rangers captain in the making. Has all the tools to be.

People were digging at Docherty after Hamilton game. Now look at him, he’s absolutely phenomenal, what a gem we’ve got.

Docherty began his career at Hamilton, where he stayed for five seasons before moving to Ibrox.
He made 108 appearances for the New Douglas Park club, and scored the all important goal which won them the Scottish Premiership promotion/relegation play-off against Dundee United last season.
His performances in helping Hamilton to stay up in the Scottish Premiership caught the eyes of Gers manager Graeme Murty and director of football Mark Allen, and it was no surprise that he eventually joined his childhood heroes.
Docherty made his Gers debut against against Ross County in January, and has went on to become an increasingly influential player in the team.
He has assists for goals in his last two appearances, one for Jamie Murphy’s goal against Hearts and one for Windass’s against St Johnstone.
