New Rangers signings only get one chance to make a first impression and unfortunealtey for Jack Simpson, he is already facing an uphill battle.

The January acquisition came off the bench to replace Filip Helander with around half an hour to play against Dundee United and looked – for the most part – assured in possession, he also showed a decent turn of pace to mop up a couple of hopeful long balls.

It shows how far we’ve come though that players are getting criticised for losing a goal when we are already four to the good, and although the midfield didn’t cover themselves in glory, it is Simpson’s part in Marc McNulty’s goal that has seen him face some early pelters.

Have fans been harsh on Simpson?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He committed the ultimate crime of losing a 50/50 challenge before the ball broke to McNulty, I just hope he has thick skin…

If jack Simpson thinks that is an acceptable attempted tackle for a rangers player he is absolutely in for a shock.

I think the word we are looking for is “scathing”, zero sympathy for him being a little bit rusty, at least he knows how high the standards are that he needs to reach though.
