Fans of Glasgow Rangers have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which the Gers relayed the post-match comments of Steven Gerrard following the club’s draw with St Johnstone on Wednesday.
Speaking after the 1-1 draw at McDiarmid Park, the Gers boss claimed that a number of his decisions made in the match were “all about the weekend,” when Rangers, rather coincidentally, play St Johnstone once again in the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup.
However, the 40-year-old did claim that it was a shame his side couldn’t “see the game out” having taken the lead, although admitted that he felt Jack Simpson’s barge on Christopher Kane, which led to St Johnstone’s 95th-minute equaliser from the spot, “was a penalty,” despite reports suggesting the referee’s decision was debatable.
And, after Rangers relayed footage of Gerrard’s comments on Twitter, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing somewhat dumbstruck by their manager’s belief that Simpson’s challenge warranted a spot-kick.
Do you think the penalty should have been given?
So, what exactly did these Rangers fans have to say in reaction to Steven Gerrard’s post-match comments?
“Can’t believe he thought it was a penalty. Everything else makes sense.”
“He’s obviously not seen that back if he thinks it is a penalty.”
“Ngl that’s a really bad interview from him.”
“That’s not a penalty.”
“Was a penalty?!”
“I’m surprised at his attitude towards this game.”
“Baffled Gerrard thinks one if not both are penalties against us, I’m just not seeing it. Especially the second. Possible he’s picking his battles. The rest I’m on board with.”
“He’s lost it. How on earth is he saying that was a penalty?”
