Hull City fans have praised former Rangers midfielder, Greg Docherty, for his performance against Plymouth Argyle in League One on Saturday afternoon.
The Tigers won the game 1-0 courtesy of a Hakeeb Adelakun goal in the 10th minute, as they continued their perfect start to the campaign.
Docherty has played all but two minutes of the four games so far and although he’s yet to score his first goal or notch a maiden assist, he’s proving popular with the English club’s fanbase.
He tweeted after the game to acknowledge the result and the strong start to the 2020/21 season.
“Another great performance from the boys! 4 wins 4 clean sheets,” he wrote.
Plenty of Hull supporters then took the opportunity to praise him under the post.
Excellent performance by you and everyone! What a team performance so far👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

This is Docherty’s second crack at the English third tier, after his successful loan stint with Shrewsbury Town during the 2018/19 season.
The 24-year-old won the club’s Player of the Year award after scoring seven goals and notching eight assists, as Salop finished five points above the relegation zone.
He will be fighting it out at the top end of the division this time around, though, with Hull aiming for automatic promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
Former Rangers striker, Ryan Hardie, played 76 minutes for the opposition, having joined Plymouth for a second consecutive loan spell from Blackpool in August.
