Gerrard, McGregor and Foderingham Criticise Kilmarnock’s Plastic Pitch After Murphy Injury

Gerrard, McGregor and Foderingham Criticise Kilmarnock’s Plastic Pitch After Murphy Injury

Rangers trio  Steven Gerrard, Allan McGregor and Wes Foderingham have all criticised Kilmarnock‘s plastic pitch following Jamie Murphy’s painful-looking injury earlier today.

Gerrard took his Gers side to Rugby Park for this afternoon’s Betfred Cup tie and was delighted as an Alfredo Morelos hat-trick guaranteed his side a place in the competition’s quarter-finals.

However, the injury to Murphy was the one blight on today’s 3-1 victory, with the winger writhing in agony early in the first-half following an awkward fall.

The replay showed the 28-year-old might’ve got his left foot stuck on the dry pitch as he attempted to turn and it looks as though the Scotland international could be set for a spell on the sidelines.

Kilmarnock are just one of several clubs who use a synthetic surface at their home ground instead of grass but it seems many within the Rangers camp are sick and tired of playing on 3G pitches:

Is it too much to ask that every one of Scotland’s top-flight clubs has a decent grass home pitch?

What do you think?
