Video: Why is Rob Kiernan Holding Clint Hill For Ross County Goal?

We’ve no idea why Rob Kiernan was holding Clint Hill in the box as Andrew Davies scored Ross County‘s goal against Rangers yesterday.

It was a disappointing performance for Mark Warburton’s men in the Highlands as they failed to capitalise on an early opening goal through Hill’s header.

That opener came in the eighth minute, but was followed up by a County resurgence that was rewarded with an equaliser 18 minutes later when Davies powered home a header from a corner.

Now Rangers fans can criticise their team and manager for a number of things, but surely the way they defended the County goal is the worst?

As this video shows, Hill appears to be appealing for a foul in the box as centre back partner Kiernan holds him off – therefore letting Davies roam free to head home:

It actually gets worse the more you watch it.

That result now leaves Rangers 11 points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premier League table and the champions still have a game in hand.

But they’re still in the mix with Aberdeen, Hearts and St Johnstone for second and you’d imagine they’ll continue to be if they can stop simple mistakes like this at the back.
