With Rangers suffering a first defeat of the season at the hands of Old Firm rivals Celtic on Sunday, the game has sparked plenty of reactions from fans.

A good number have their gripes from the performance as we didn’t really get at our hosts on the day but equally a lot of fans are prepared to be philosophical knowing it’s a long hard season and not a sprint, and Rangers are very much still a work in progress under manager Steven Gerrard.

One man who certainly received mix reviews from the game was on loan Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent.

The 21-year-old put plenty of effort into his showing but it was largely a defensive performance from the winger as he helped contain the threat of Kieran Tierney. Whilst he received plenty of credit for his tracking back, it wasn’t an offensive showing and attack is the best form of defence.

With him having little impact at the top of the pitch as the above comments imply, plenty wondered if another choice of player would’ve helped to give a more rounded performance – but in a below-par showing Kent was far from the only player to struggle and he did have his supporters who saw things from the day differently.
