Rangers moved back into second place in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday, thumping Hamilton 5-3 away from home thanks to goals from Josh Windass, Jamie Murphy and Alfredo Morelos.
The Light Blues were under pressure to capitalise on Aberdeen’s loss to Hibernian on Saturday and did exactly that, also closing the gap on Celtic after the Scottish champions drew later in the day at home to St Johnstone.
The day belonged to Windass, who scored his second hat-trick of 2018, but another player also drew plaudits from supporters.
Greg Docherty was making his first league start for the club and performed well in the middle of the park, despite an error contributing to Hamilton’s first of the afternoon.
Supporters are hugely excited by the 20-year-old’s potential with some saying he is already filling a role that Rangers have been looking for, for years.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Highly encouraging performance from Greg Docherty today, I really think we've got a diamond there

Sean Goss and Greg Docherty.
A match made in heaven.
One pinging balls here, there and everywhere.
The other, snapping at ankles and winning tackles.
The best double act since Morecambe & Wise!
