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?
