Rangers fans were left discussing Jamie Murphy after the forward scored a brace in Burton Albion’s 2-2 draw at home to Bolton Wanderers.
The Scotsman made a temporary move to the League One side in the January transfer window after featuring in just two Scottish Premiership games in the first half of the campaign (via Transfermarkt). His lack of appearances was due to fact he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury at the beginning of the 2018/2019 season.
One fan called him a ‘great player’.
Well done Jamie, great player you have on loan there. But we want him back 😉👍🇬🇧🏴

However, he seems to have settled in well at Pirelli Stadium and has scored five goals and contributed a further two assists in just nine league games in the third-tier of English football (via Transfermarkt). This is in stark contrast to players like Sheyi Ojo and Brandon Barker, who have struggled this year. The on-loan Liverpool man has scored the same amount of goals as the experienced Murphy despite having played over 35 games, meanwhile, the former Manchester City player has scored just once. Supporters were adamant the player should return to Ibrox as they discussed him. Here are some tweets:
