Some Sympathy, Some Anger.. Rangers Fans React to Bruno Alves Sub Refusal Story

Some Sympathy, Some Anger.. Rangers Fans React to Bruno Alves Sub Refusal Story

Rangers fans have been reacting to news that Bruno Alves allegedly refused to be named as a substitute in their 2-0 defeat to Hamilton at the weekend.

The Portuguese defender hasn’t played for the club since his side’s 1-1 draw at home to Kilmarnock in Pedro Caixinha’s last game in charge.

Alves has had to sit out one-game through a suspension he picked up during the Betfred Cup semi-final and that had coincided with two impressive performances from Danny Wilson and Ross McCrorie at the heart of the Gers defence.

But, according to dailyrecord.co.uk, he hasn’t been happy at missing out recent games and his frustration showed when he apparently refused to be a sub in the game against Hamilton last weekend.

That’s the story to begin the day in Scottish football and Rangers fans have been busy reacting to it on social media.

But it seems to be a mixed response, with some expressing sympathy for Alves while others believe he can never play again for the club if it’s true:

It’s just another off-the-field story that could dog Rangers over the coming days as they look to bounce back from their shock defeat at home to Accies.

They play Dundee on Friday night and, unless there’s a public statement to deny or clear up the Alves situation, Graeme Murty should face a few questions about it at his press conference ahead of the game.
