Glasgow Rangers will be gutted after failing to secure three points at Benfica, and Scott Arfield will be disappointed with his cameo from the bench.
The Gers were in a commanding position with 15 minutes left on the clock. After Connor Goldson’s early own-goal, they had managed to turn it around to 3-1, albeit with the helping hand from a Nicolas Otamendi red card. Diogo Goncalves beat his own goalkeeper to level things up, before Glen Kamara and Alfredo Morelos struck to put the Ibrox outfit in control.
However, Rafa Silva and Darwin Nunez netted late on to secure a point for their side. The £1.8m-valued 32-year-old (Transfermarkt) was at fault for the third strike, with his awful through ball allowing Benfica to have one final effort at goal, from which they scored.
Has Scott Arfield been a success at Rangers?
The Gers supporters were absolutely disgusted, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts – one fan even called it a ‘Stuart Armstrong moment’.
Let’s what the fans had to say about Arfield below
Our defence has been top notch all season, but defending like that against real quality, then it’s only going to end one way.
As for Arfield late in the game, his decision making was an utter disgrace

Hot take given we were 3-1 U.K. against 10 men. Yes kent could have scored but if we don’t give away a silly foul and Helander doesn’t mess up they don’t get the second and if Arfield wasn’t a useless midfielder they don’t get their 3rd.
Harsh blaming kent

Scott Arfield had a Stuart Armstrong moment. Keep that ball or play a better pass and we win

Arfield cost us the game and the manager must share it for putting him on

Absolutely criminal from Arfield not taking that to the corner

I was shocked at the positions Tav and Borna were taking up at 3-2. They should know better. Having that extra man definitely changed the mentality of the players and they got carried away. That being said Arfield had the worst cameo of all time. Still buzzing to be top after 3.
