Rangers recorded a goalless draw against Villarreal in the Europa League on Thursday night – and some of the club’s supporters nailed midfielder Lassana Coulibaly for his display.
The Light Blues were held to a 0-0 draw at Ibrox against the Spanish club, which means they need to win their final group stage match against Rapid Vienna to progress.
The Gers had to play the entire second-half with just 10 men, as Daniel Candeias was given a second booking just before half-time.
Steven Gerrard’s side owe their goalkeeper Allan McGregor massively after his brilliant individual display, as he made a couple of eye-catching saves to help his team hold out for a point.
A selection of Rangers fans on social media decided to single out midfielder Coulibaly for his performance and believe he was well off the pace.
The 22-year-old midfielder had to do a lot of defensive work with his team against the wall and only showed glimpses of his driving attacking runs.
He impressed supporters during the early stages of the season following his arrival on loan and has continued to be an important first teamer in Gerrard’s time.
But his levels appear to have dipped somewhat and some supporters have taken note.
Here are some Rangers fans tweets criticising Coulibaly:
Does anyone know if Coulibaly put his shoes on the wrong feet tonight?

Coulibaly has no composure.

Arfield was outstanding, Jack unassuming
Coulibaly isn’t doing enough for me to justify his place

Coulibaly still a ghost. Flanagan pish despite playing a bit better second half. Goldson had rings ran around him. Really shouldhv started mcauly

Genuinely disappointed in Coulibaly, game by game he’s playing more like a loanee from a mid table French team.

Coulibaly has been woeful for months. It’s beyond me why McCrorie hasn’t been given more of a chance recently when Coulibaly seems to keep strolling into the team.

McCrorie back, get in! Coulibaly is hopeless
