Many Rangers fans have been raging on Twitter about Ian Crocker’s commentary in the 2-1 win over St Johnstone.
The Sky Sports commentator was on duty as Steven Gerrard’s side came from behind to beat the Saints on Saturday thanks to second-half goals from Kemar Roofe and James Tavernier. Michael O’Halloran had put the hosts ahead, but the lead only lasted seven minutes.
The victory means Rangers have won four of their opening five Premiership games, including a victory in the most recent Old Firm derby before the international break, and they rise above Hibernian into top spot.
For Tavernier’s spectacular looped effort over Zander Clark to secure the three points, Crocker’s commentary came in for criticism over his tone once the ball hit the back of the net, with some viewers accusing him of sounding disappointed about the concession of the goal.
Rangers fans rage at Crocker commentary
In a video from the Sky Sports Scotland Twitter account [shared via Heart & Hand Podcast on Twitter], these Rangers fans raged about the commentators’ lack of praise and excitement for Tavernier’s goal.
“He does it all the time. I absolutely hate his commentary”
“His co-commentator sounded like he had been informed his cat just died, the disappointment is a joy to behold.”
“Listen to him at the end of the game. Sounded utterly deflated.”
“So much dead air”
“The pain in his voice when he realises it went in is glorious”
“His constant getting our black players mixed up got on my nerves all day”
