Neil McCann critical of Sheyi Ojo performance against Hearts

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard pulled the winger to Ibrox from his former club in the summer.

The result was fair on the balance of play, with Rangers struggling to find the edge over Craig Levein’s side. 

Speaking to BBC Sportsround,  former Scotland international McCann, who spent five years at Ibrox, was critical of the Liverpool loanee.


“I don’t think Sheyi Ojo does enough with his ability. He’s so quick, he’s direct, but he’s not enough of an attacking threat for Rangers. He can offer so much more.”

 

TBR’s View

There is no doubt Ojo did not have one of his better games as a Rangers player yesterday. He struggled to get involved in the fixture and criticism of his display is perhaps fair. 

However, he has been a fairly positive attacking threat for Rangers since his arrival in the summer. 

The 22-year-old has five goals and four assists so far this season but he has only scored once in the league so perhaps that is why McCann is so critical of his displays. 

Bringing consistency to his spark could make him a key player for Rangers this season and hopefully, Gerrard can soon have him performing at his best week-in and week-out.
