Rangers are drawing 2-2 with arch-rivals Celtic at half-time in the latest edition of the Old Firm derby at Ibrox on Sunday, and Gers fans have been quick to destroy defender Fabio Cardoso, rated at €900,000 (£800,000) by Transfermarkt, for his display in the opening 45 minutes.
The Portuguese defender started the match on the substitutes’ bench, but he was introduced in the in the 15th minute after David Bates picked up an injury when Tom Rogic equalised for the visitors.
Daniel Candeias gave the hosts the lead again but then Cardoso, who fans haven’t wanted to start previously this season, should have done better when he came up against Moussa Dembele on the stroke of half-time, with the striker bringing Brendan Rodgers’ side level.
Rangers supporters were quick to have their say on Cardoso’s display via social media, and while one said “Cardoso is terrible”, another said “knew when he came on we would concede”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
