Many Scotland fans were critical of Glasgow Rangers defender Nathan Patterson despite their 3-2 win at home to Israel on Saturday evening.
Israel took the lead very early on through a free kick from Eran Zahavi, and a lot of Scottish supporters thought that the Ibrox youngster was at fault for not clearing his lines properly in the build-up to the foul.
The right-back endured a pretty difficult first half, and although he improved afterwards, he was guilty of giving the ball away on far too many occasions throughout the match.
Should Rangers start Patterson?
Patterson lost possession 24 times, the most out of any player on the pitch by far, and also lost out on 11 of his duels, again the most of anyone who featured at Hampden Park (Sofascore). The Rangers ace failed with three of his dribble attempts and also made no interceptions or accurate crosses (Sofascore).
Scotland fans on Patterson
These Scotland fans slammed Patterson on Twitter, with one even going as far as to claim that he was ‘rotten’:
“Patterson is an U21 player at best!! Should be nowhere near it!!! If you’re honest with yourself you actually know it!!”
“I thought Patterson was meant to be the 2nd coming of Cafu? Absolutely rotten so far.”
“Patterson and Hendry with some work to do to make up for that shambles.”
“Patterson then Hendry at fault there, amateur defending”
“Patterson should have cleared the ball believing his own hype. Hendry foolish tackle”
