@jordandalzell89: “Not the same without, Morelos! But fans still want rid of him. Baffling. Not the same team when he doesn't play.”

@liaratmoany: “45 minutes for them to prove the badge means anything to them.”

@deanog99: “Do something other than pass the ball side to side.”

@TrueBluesLoyal: “This needs to be stepped up now and it’s pointless crossing the ball into the box no ones there. It’s time to to turn the screw it’s all or nothing in the 2nd half. A hate to say but we are missing Alfredo as he offers a different option. We have to win this game.”

@sevyGe55y: “This is s**** Rangers. Every year. Every damn year we bottle it. What is going on? How can we suddenly go from the best form team in Europe to getting beaten off st mirren and Motherwell. It doesn't make sense. Need to show real character in the 2nd half to stop this slide.”

@gkirk1983: “The performance is flat. No quality. Hopefully 2nd half sees a big improvement.”

@beaford_j: “Same pattern every time. Loss a cup game, drop points next league game. Teams great when out in front, panic merchants when behind. Clearly a mental issue. This Motherwell team haven’t won in 6 games. Massive 45 mins ahead. We never seem to learn.”
