Rangers fans react to Jon Flanagan’s display on Twitter after Midtjylland win

Jon Flanagan saw out the entire 90 minutes on the left side of the Rangers defence on Thursday night as Steven Gerrard’s side eased into the Europa league play-off round – but many fans were not happy with Flanagan’s display.

The 26-year-old has become a somewhat important player at Rangers, since reuniting himself with former Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard at Ibrox. He joined the Scottish club on a free in the summer of 2018.

Since then, the one-time England international has been used as a left-back more so than a right-sided defender – despite being right-footed. He has since clocked up 32 appearances for the Light Blues.

This season, Flanagan has only appeared in the Europa League outings against FC Midtjylland. Gerrard prefers Flanagan in the Europa League at the back instead of Andy Halliday, while Borna Barisic is injured.

A mistake by Flanagan allowed Midtjylland in to score their consolation goal though he remained solid enough, given he was playing on the left side of defence on his wrong side.

But Rangers fans were not as sympathetic on Twitter. Many criticised the former Liverpool defender for his display, stating that he is simply not good enough to be considered the club’s first-choice left-back.
