Rangers fans react to Jamie Murphy’s display for Burton Albion

Rangers suffered a crushing defeat in midweek at Rugby Park as Kilmarnock overturned a first half deficit to clinch all three points on the night.

It was a demoralising and familiar story for the Gers who looked bereft of ideas for long spells.

Ryan Kent was willing to drive with the ball at his feet but often found himself running down cul-de-sacs and stifling Rangers’ attacking threat as a result.

And, rather ironically, this result arrived the evening after Jamie Murphy notched his third goal in five games for Burton Albion.

The 30-year-old winger joined the Brewers on loan from Rangers in January and has immediately made an impact in League One, as his goal scoring record attests to.

Given Steven Gerrard’s struggle to squeeze anything by way of creativity out of his side in recent weeks, it was no surprise that certain fans were calling for Murphy to return to Ibrox.

Similar sentiment were echoed by other supporters who suggested he was the type of player they needed to unlock the door at Killie.

Not only was his technical quality required but his passion too.

Finally, three fans slated the club’s decision to let him leave the club on loan.

One fan labelled Sheyi Ojo and Brandon Barker as frauds who amazingly remain at the club while Murphy thrives elsewhere, and another claimed the loanee is the the perfect inside forward.
