Dreadful Rangers drop points / Giovanni Van Bronckhorst reaction

Rangers vs Livingston has never been a classic but on a Saturday at 3pm there is only one place to be. Ibrox is wet and windy for the visit of the Lions who always make it difficult for anyone. The highest league victory for Rangers is a 3-0 win which shows you these games are normally tight affairs.

Rangers won the first encounter 1-2, with two quick goals after the 70min mark, but it was far from convincing. Arfield and Tavernier scored that day to get Rangers off to a good league start with performance secondary, but more will be expected today. It will be another scrap and Rangers will have to perform to get a result.

Van Bronckhorst has been honest on where we are, we need to perform better even though we are getting results, he’s offered no excuses. Let’s hope it starts today.

RANGERS: McGregor, Tavernier, King, Davies, Barisic, Lundstram, Davis, Arfield, Tillman, Kent, Colak.

Subs: McLaughlin, Ridvan, Matando, Sands, Morelos, Wright, Roofe, McCann, Fashion Jr.

First half action

3 mins – King ball to Kent who’s whips it in to Čolak who heads wide.

4 mins – GOAL! Livi score. Tavernier is beaten easily and the cross is controlled by Nouble, he spins to roll in the opener. 0-1

19 mins – Livi flash one just wide as Rangers don’t clear properly. That was so close to a second. 0-1

Very poor start from Rangers

31 mins – Kent cross to Čolak who pokes wide. 0-1

34 mins – Čolak flashes an effort wide from outside the box. 0-1

40 mins – Caution Kelly 📒 Borna flashes free kick harmlessly wide.

44 mins – Caution Tillman 📒


Absolutely dreadful.

Second half action

SUBSTITUTIONS – Davis, King OFF. Sands, Matondo ON

64 mins – Čolak overhead kick wide from Arfield cross. 0-1

70 mins – Caution George 📒

76 mins – Caution Boyes 📒 VAR check for possible red.

RED CARD Boyes 📕 Livi have 10 men. VAR intervention for serious foul play.

Substitution – Matondo OFF Sakala ON

Substitution – Barisic OFF Roofe ON

85 mins – Tavernier cross, Roofe heads over. 0-1

89 mins – Caution Morelos 📒

90 mins – GOOOOAALLL! Lundstram volley from a kent cross. 1-1!

90 + mins – Čolak header turned over by George. 1-1

90 + mins – Lundstram headers a sitter over and it’s FT


A truly dreadful performance throughout and it has caught up with us. Simply unsustainable form and a manager now severely under pressure.

  1. Gio is definitely taking us back the way , such boring slow style of play which clearly the players don’t buy into ! Tavs finesse levels looked shocking yesterday!


  2. Same old same old.

    Put your hands up Gio, your tactics are poor and if you don’t see that then neither will the players.
