‘Rank, offers nothing’: Rangers fans rip into Lassana Coulibaly
Lassana Coulibaly completed 85 minutes in the draw to Hibernian on Boxing Day – and some of the Rangers fans on Twitter believe he needs axing from the side.
Steven Gerrard’s side were held to a 1-1 draw in the league on Wednesday, as Darren McGregor netted a late 86th minute equaliser for the visitors at Ibrox.
Alfredo Morelos did score his 20th goal of the season in the first-half to initially put the Gers in front, but they slipped up once again in the title race and host leaders Celtic at the weekend in their next fixture.
A selection of Rangers supporters on social media vented their frustration towards “bang average” midfielder Coulibaly after the contest.
The 22-year-old is a regular feature in the Gerrard’s starting XI and provides an engine in the centre of the park.
But the Mali international has gone off the boil in recent months and failed to make the same impact he originally did when he joined on loan in the summer.
Coulibaly showed against Hibernian that he’s lost the extra bite to his game with some soft tackles and his passing also let him down on a number of occasions.
Here are some of the Rangers fans tearing into Coulibaly:
Surely its time rossiter gets a run?
Coulibaly is rank just now.

On Coulibaly we were told we had a beast and to be fair looked to be the case early on, yesterday second half got out of the way of 2 50/50 challenges we keep going back to injury as an excuse but bang average performances since then suggest we are now seeing the norm https://t.co/xIsfRas3x2

I absolutely agree on Coulibaly, said so for months. He’s playing because there’s no one else. Gerrard is raw, we need to accept that or get somebody experienced in. Middleton is far too inconsistent and predictable for me and only playing due to injuries too

Coulibaly is worse than a man down honestly he offers nothing at all IF he starts on Saturday we will LOSE!! #pish

Coulibaly has been off the boil for months. However, when he arrived Gerrard called him a “destroyer” type. Playing him further forward to help Morelos is helping no one, especially Coulibaly himself. Gerrard is trying to fit square pegs in round holes, 3 CDM’s are no use.

For 80 mins we carried two passengers in Coulibaly and Middleton. Both are bang average! If they had been subbed at 55/60 mins we win that game. Dropping 4 points to the worst hibs team I’ve seen for a while is unacceptable.
