Southampton surrendered a 2-0 half-time lead to draw 2-2 with Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday as Abdoulaye Doucoure put a last minute equaliser in with his hand, but Saints fans weren’t impressed with Ryan Bertrand’s performance.
The south coast outfit looked to be on their way to their first Premier League win since the end of November following James Ward-Prowse’s brace in the opening 45 minutes, but Andre Gray pulled one back for the hosts soon after the break after Steven Davis was caught in possession.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s men then lost a much-needed three points when left-back Bertrand left Doucoure free at the back post, and he finished past Alex McCarthy with his hand.
Southampton supporters were quick to have their say on the England international’s display via social media, and while one said “Bertrand couldn’t care less”, another agreed and said “Bertrand had an absolute shocker”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Watching MOTD, confirms my suspicions yesterday that Bertrand coudnt care less yesterday. Never gave 100% and didn't even challenge for the first goal against Gray. Another one gone.. shocking. #SaintsFC

Personally thought Bertrand had an absolute shocker today, doesnt look arsed at all just like Virgil didnt, completely responsible for losing his man on that second goal #saintsfc

What was Bertrand up to today!? Just stood there for the first goal then ball watching for the second. Really poor. #saintsfc

Ok, a clear hand ball but how the hell has Bertrand let him get behind him in the last minute? And the keeper has got to do so much better. Really poor from us again. #SaintsFC https://t.co/VrbyI6LDJl
