Rangers fans have reacted poorly to Russell Martin’s comments about his failed loan spell in the second half of the 2017/18 season.
As quoted by The Argus, Martin said of his time at the club: “For me it was a bit wrong place, wrong time. The club was a bit all over the place and then a change of manager, who was an interim manager anyway (Graeme Murty).”
Rangers supporters however reckon he failed to make it at Ibrox simply because he was not good enough.
The defender was arguably the weakest link of a calamitous back four that conceded more goals in the Scottish Premiership that any other side that finished in the top six.
Combined with multiple heavy defeats to Celtic, it’s easy to see why he’s not the most popular figure with fans of the Ibrox club right now.
Steven Gerrard needs to sort out the Rangers defensive line quickly if they are going to compete for trophies next season.
Fans took to Twitter this week to take exception to Martin’s comments…

Right place. Wrong time. Wrong player.

‘All over the place’ and ‘wrong time, wrong place’ are both phrases that fans would readily associate with Martin.

Rangers loanee Russell Martin says 'club was a bit all over the place'. Unfortunately for him, his defending was a bit all over the place!
