Rangers Fans Aren’t Happy With Mark Warburton’s Team Selection vs Celtic

Rangers fans have voiced their concerns on social media, following manager Mark Warburton‘s team selection for this afternoon’s Old Firm clash against Celtic.

While Gers skipper Lee Wallace’s fitness has forced Warburton’s hand, it appears fans are unwilling to accept that Martyn Waghorn has been benched for the game at Ibrox.

The former Wigan Athletic striker has scored 10 goals in 19 appearances for the Gers this season, however seven of those strikes have been in the League Cup.

Yet, despite Waghorn’s inconsistent streak in front of goal, most fans favoured the 26-year-old over former Preston star Joe Garner who starts against the Hoops:

 

Warburton admitted earlier this week that Rangers will struggle to compete with Celtic in the coming years due to financial restrictions, however this game is surely a must-win for a team that are 16 points behind their bitter rivals.

Meanwhile, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has caused a bit of a stir in the opposite dugout, by benching Leigh Griffiths and Patrick Roberts.
