Rangers enjoyed a comfortable win tonight against a dreadful St Johnstone, and a great many of their big players turned up in drovers to perform, the likes of Jamie Murphy, Josh Windass, Sean Goss and Greg Docherty especially outstanding for the travelling blues.
However one January signing reverted back to type, having failed to convince many fans over the past month or so of his qualities, and while he seemed to have a more competent display against Hearts, Russell Martin’s weaknesses at the back were exposed on several occasions and the 32-year old on-loan Norwich defender will have done his case for a permanent move to Rangers no good at all.
Rangers fans were decidedly unimpressed and took to social media to express just how poor Martin was, and how shaky Rangers’ central defence continues to be despite the excellent results otherwise.
Here’s the best of the reaction on an otherwise comfortable night for the Famous:
Russell Martin with yet more poor defending. Has looked suspect in almost every game for Rangers so far.
