Greg Docherty may have inexplicably lost his place in the first team at Ibrox, but that didn’t stop the outstanding young midfielder celebrating Ross McCrorie’s equaliser like he’d just scored the goal himself.
McCrorie’s second half head evened the match up and set it up for a decent finish, but despite being consigned to the bench ever since the Hampden debacle, Docherty’s maturity and support is there for all to see and he gave it ‘laldy’ as McCrorie nabbed the header above everyone else at the 51 second mark:
While most of the bench did react with gusto to the goal, it gives some idea of the importance to Docherty of being at Ibrox, even though he currently has to bide his time playing second fiddle to Jason Holt.
The ex-Hamilton man had a barnstorming start to life at Ibrox, being easily one of the club’s best performers until the Ibrox Old Firm saw him end up partnered with the increasingly ineffectual Graham Dorrans, and his game suffered as a result.
But on no planet is Jason Holt the better player.
Incidentally, Ibrox Noise was amused to see a comment on the site from a Rangers fan aimed at Docherty arguing he’d been a terrible signing and been awful from day one. Ibrox Noise was even more amused to see another five fans agree with that assessment.
Ibrox Noise wonders what they’re smoking.
