Rangers fans on Twitter devastated and angry as Murphy’s set to miss the season

Yesterday, Steven Gerrard confirmed in his press conference that Jamie Murphy is looking likely to miss the rest of the season after he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Kilmarnock on Sunday and the fans are blaming the artificial pitch for the setback.

The game against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park ended prematurely for Murphy as he had to be stretchered off just 17 minutes into the match and it now seems that the injury is as bad as they feared and the 28-year-old will miss the rest of the season. Jamie Murphy signed for the club permanently in the summer after spending the second half of last season on loan at Ibrox and he’ll have an even longer wait before playing a full season for the club now.

The news is obviously devastating for the fans who had big hopes that Murphy was going to help them towards having a successful season this year. That won’t be the case now and frustration is beginning to turn into anger as The Gers fume at Kilmarnock for being unable to provide a grass playing pitch. This isn’t the first time that Rangers have been left in a bad position by the pitch at Rugby Park as Martyn Waghorn suffered an injury their back in 2016 and the supporters believe that neither Waghorn’s nor Murphy’s injuries would have been as severe had the game been on grass.

The Gers are gutted for their man and fuming with the way it was allowed to happen by playing on an artificial pitch and they won’t let up until something is done to prevent further injuries.
