Joe Worrall has had an interesting time of it in Glasgow.
The 21-year-old arrived from Nottingham Forest over the summer looking for game time. Initially, he started well. At 6ft 4′, he looms over most forwards and cruised through his first outings in a Gers shirt.
However, since then, it has all went rapidly downhill. He now looks an accident waiting to happen and it’s hard to believe that Forest actually turned down an offer of £11.5 million from Burnley for his services.
He has found himself out of favour recently, as Gareth McAuley struck up a partnership with Connor Goldson.
However, when McAuley pulled up with an apparent muscle injury after an hour, Worrall was introduced.
Worrall is prone to lapses in concentration
As has become a common theme, all was going swimmingly. The defender then made two calamitous errors, one directly after the other.
Following a corner in the 82nd minute , Worrall hooked the ball directly behind him and released an opposition player.
He recovered to win the ball back. Yet, he then inexplicably repeated his mistake, firing an apparent back pass from the halfway line, straight into the path of Martin Boyle.
Fortunately, the industrious Daniel Candeias had dropped back. The Portuguese then just managed to get a foot in at the right time, to nick the ball away.
Had he not been there, the Hibs winger would have been clean through on Allan McGregor.
Once more, Worrall proved his decision-making to be highly questionable. The way he is playing at the minute, he cannot be relied upon at centre-back for the Gers.
The lapses in concentration are simply too grave and too frequent.
