Rangers fans reacted to Steven Davis’ performance against Kilmarnock


Rangers fans reacted to Steven Davis’ performance against Kilmarnock

Rangers suffered a 2-1 away defeat to Kilmarnock on Wednesday night in the Scottish Premiership, which meant they slipped down to third in the league table.

The Light Blues resumed league action after the winter break and went into the midweek fixture buoyed by a win over Celtic in December.

Jermain Defoe scored his first goal for the Gers since joining in January early in the contest to give the visitors a lead.

But Eamonn Brophy quickly equalised for the hosts and Steven Gerrard’s side never really recovered.

Steven Davis was another January recruit for Gerrard’s team on loan from Southampton and he started against Kilmarnock.

The 34-year-old previously had a four-year spell with the Scottish giants earlier in his career and has returned to try aid a title bid.

But they are now three points adrift of leaders Celtic, who have also played a game more.

Davis was introduced to the side in midfield and is renowned for his creativity, but he received a mixed response to his display on Wednesday before being substituted off.

The Northern Ireland international may need time to readjust to playing regular football again and he wasn’t quite at his sharpest.

Here are some of the mixed Rangers fan tweets on his comeback performance:
