Some Rangers fans demanded that Steven Gerrard take off Sheyi Ojo at half time after becoming infuriated with his performance last night.
Does Steven Gerrard need to win the league this season?
HALF-TIME: Young Boys 0-1 Rangers

The Light Blues slipped to a last-minute 2-1 defeat to BSC Young Boys in their second Europa League tie of the group stage, despite Alfredo Morelos putting the visitors ahead in Switzerland.
Two second-half goals from the Swiss outfit were enough to turn the tie on its head and ensure that Gerrard’s side suffered just their second defeat of the season in what was their 19th match of the campaign (Transfermarkt).
Ojo had a rather poor game against Young Boys, as he struggled to get involved and, when he did, he was largely ineffective.
According to the data collected by WhoScored, the Liverpool loanee had 33 touches of the ball, but was dispossessed once, had failed to control the ball on two separate occasions and was found offside twice.
Ojo managed just one shot (which was off target), completed one dribble and had a passing accuracy of just 75% in what turned out to be a bad day at the office (per WhoScored).
Indeed, fans had called for the winger to be substituted at half time, but Gerrard failed to take note and decided to keep the 22-year-old on the pitch for the duration of the game, annoying fans on Twitter in the process.
Here were just some of their cries for the manager to sub him…
good way to finish the first half Ojo is the most inconsistent player I’ve seen… the sooner Kent and Jones are back the better

Right, now do us a favour. And get Ojo telt. Wake him up oot his slump. Or take him off. Gave ball away aboot 700 times and poor decision making cost us 3 good chances. Stewart or Barker on bench so just take him off
