Rangers fans react as Goldson silences some critics v Hamilton

Rangers went top of the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon as they hammered Hamilton Academical 5-0 at Ibrox.

The Gers went into the game just around an hour after Celtic had lost at the Tony Macaroni Arena to Livingston and knew that a win would take them top of the league.

Some added pressure to a game they were already expected to win, then, but they dealt with it well and put away the visitors with real ease.

A Jermain Defoe hat-trick was the main reason for the win, but goals from defenders Borna Barisic and Connor Goldson helped add sheen to the victory.

Indeed, Goldson silenced a few critics with his display as he battered in a header from a James Tavernier cross for 2-0.

Here, then, is some of the reaction to the defender’s goal and performance on social media:

A fine win for the Gers and a good performance from the centre-half as we head into the international break.
