‘Only one that looks hungry’ – Some Rangers fans call for individual to start next game

Glasgow Rangers dropped two more points on Sunday afternoon when they were held 2-2 by St Johnstone, and after the match their supporters took to social media to call for a certain player to start.

This is a frustrating time for the Gers. They went into 2020 on a high after beating Celtic in their final game of 2019, but since returning from their winter break they have failed to win four of their eight matches, and now sit a massive 12 points behind their rivals Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

What was once a significant title challenge is a little short of a crisis for Rangers, and already their attentions may be turning to the Europa League and the Scottish Cup to salvage something from their season.

It was a familiar tale for the Gers at McDiarmid Park, where they were unable to capitalise on the chances they created, and could not hold their opposition at bay.

Rangers fell behind early in the game, in what was a dreadful performance by Steven Gerrardโ€™s men, but things changed at the break when he brought on his on loan star Florian Kamberi, and that had an immediate effect.

It was the Hibernian man who found the back of the net five minutes into the second period, and the Gers were ahead later on when Joe Aribo converted an assist from the Romanian.

Just when it looked like Rangers were going to pick up an important three points, Stevie May equalised for St Johnstone, much to the frustration of the Ibrox faithful, for whom this was yet another poor result.

The Gers fans could not hide their disappointment on social media after the match, and were strong in their calls to see Kamberi start matches from now on.

Here are some of their messages:
