Glasgow Rangers were involved in a Europa League classic on Thursday against Royal Antwerp, but the fans were far from happy with the performance of Scott Arfield.
It was a clash that had absolutely everything. The Gers came from a goal down twice to prevail 4-3, picking up two penalties along the way as Antwerp player Abdoulaye Seck received a red card late in the second-half. The Ibrox outfit also had to deal with two big injuries – one to captain James Tavernier and another to Kemar Roofe.
Arfield made his first start for the 54-time Scottish champions since December 26th (Transfermarkt), and his lack of match-fitness showed. He was often unable to keep up with the pace of the game, and it was no surprise to see him taken off with quarter of an hour left.
Should Arfield have started against Antwerp?
The Gers fans were disappointed with his showing, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Arfield below
“Scott Arfield has had an absolute nightmare of a game.”
“Arfield has been horrid tonight”
“Arfield looks like he hasn’t played for 7 months not 7 weeks”
“Arfield is miles off the pace and has been all game… if Jack is on the park that 3rd goal doesn’t happen”
“Arfield looked off it tonight, think if Gerrard had his time game would have played Kamara, Jack and Davis.”
“Get Arfield off and Hagi on. Arfield playing walking football.”
