Rangers fans slam Steven Gerrard over John Lundstram decision
A number of Rangers fans have taken to Twitter to hit out at the decision made by Steven Gerrard concerning John Lundstram following the Gers’ defeat on Thursday.
What’s the story?
Rangers have left themselves with an uphill battle if they hope to get out of their Europa League group.
They were beaten 1-0 by Sparta Prague in a game overshadowed by the disgusting booing of Glen Kamara.
Rangers were bright at times in the first-half. However, the Gers were carved open too easily on a number of occasions. And they were grateful to Allan McGregor for bailing them out at various points.
It was not a night in which any Rangers player particularly shone. And there are concerns about the performance with the Light Blues yet to find their best form this season.
Many have hit out at Gerrard for the decision to leave Lundstram on the bench and not bring him on until the final 13 minutes.
By that stage, Rangers were down to 10 men with Kamara being sent off.
Lundstram has been superb after a tough start to life at Ibrox. And while he was not able to make a huge impact in the Czech Republic, many believe that it was a major error not to bring him on while the game was in the balance.
‘Shouldn’t have been dropped’: Rangers fans question Lundstram decision
Some have insisted that the summer signing has been their best player for some time. And thus, they are somewhat baffled that he played such a small role on Thursday.
Here is what some of the Rangers fans were saying about Lundstram after the loss…
Deciding to start Bacuna over Lundstram (or even Arfield) is baffling

Lundstram shouldn’t have been dropped the night

Why was Lundstram dropped? Been our best player last few weeks.

Gerrard had to protect Kamara. Lundstram should have been on that park long before now.

I don’t get the team selection tonight why drop Lundstram who for the last 3 weeks has easily been our best player on form

Lundstram already looking better than any of our midfielders, I loved Davis but he can’t start games for us in Europe anymore

Sakala offside or awful… Itten surely suits us better with crosses and holding it in
Davis is passed it let’s face it. Lundstram makes us look a lot better at CDM.
Roofe is a total waste of a jersey.
