Rangers Fans Raving About David Bates After He Gives Them Win v Kilmarnock

Rangers Fans Raving About David Bates After He Gives Them Win v Kilmarnock

Rangers fans are raving about David Bates after he earned them three points against Kilmarnock this afternoon.

It’s been a crazy week for everyone at Ibrox, with their 5-0 battering at the hands of Celtic last weekend being quickly followed up by the delight of Steven Gerrard’s appointment as manager yesterday.

But he won’t take over until June 1st – so it’s up to Jimmy Nicholl, Jonatan Johansson and the current crop of players to secure second in the Scottish Premiership table and European football next season.

The visit of Kilmarnock to Ibrox this afternoon would have reminded everyone how difficult a challenge that will be.

Yet Rangers clawed their way to a win, thanks in a big part to a solid performance and a goal from Bates.

He’ll leave Rangers this summer after signing a pre-contract agreement with Hamburg in Germany earlier this year, but fans don’t care:

Of course, Bates’ move to Hamburg is set so there’s no way he’ll be able to remain beyond the summer and play for Rangers.

Instead, he’ll attempt to help Hamburg get back into the Bundesliga following their inevitable relegation this season.
