Loads of Rangers fans have been running the rule over their defeat to Livingston, and they’re practically begging Steven Gerrard to bench Daniel Candeias.
The Gers fell to their second defeat of the Premiership season on Sunday, continuing their awful away from under Gerrard.
The new gaffer is yet to pick up three points on the road, and the performance on Sunday was just as concerning as the result itself.
While the players’ performances were poor, Gerrard will have to take most of the blame, as his decision to leave out his two red-hot wingers was truly bizarre.
Both Glenn Middleton and Ryan Kent have been in tremendous form, but Candeias was handed the nod to play in behind Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos.
The change in system quite simply didn’t work, and Dolly Menga’s goal was enough to give the home side all three points.
Fans are absolutely crucifying Candeias’ display, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Candeias has done nothing to show he deserved to be picked over Kent & Middleton..based on the way the other two performed lately expected him to come out and make a statement to show he is still number one.

If Candeias is playing he must be wide-right. If not there’s no point in using him. He isn’t a player capable of playing inside and linking play.

Candeias is a big no from me.
Good squad player but we need better I’m afraid. Standards need to be lifted.

He’s averaged 1 good performance in 3. I’d hope Grezda is his replacement otherwise we’re in trouble.

Candeias doing his best Houdini impression, absolute invisible

I really am done with the Candeias excitement. He is a throwback winger who does his best work combining with Tavernier on the line. He doesn’t have the awareness or intricacy to exploit the spaces created by some of the good rotations on display.

How Candeias gets a game over Middleton today I do not know. He’s been awful -as has the whole team however.
