Rangers lost ground on Celtic in the title race after a disappointing 2-2 draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie – and much of the Gers fans’ ire was reserved for Connor Goldson and Filip Helander.
The defensive duo were posted missing at both Aberdeen goals and fans were left fuming as they managed to cost the Gers what should have been a routine win.
With a massive League Cup final clash with Celtic on Sunday, Gers fans are now worried the defensive duo will cost them the club’s first chance at silverware since 2011.
Goldson and Helander have cemented themselves as Gerrard’s first-choice centre-back pairing and have consistently featured in recent months – but some fans are now calling for a change.
Gerrard has Niko Katic and George Edmundson in reserve and fans are hopeful one of them will be given a chance to shine and prove they are worth a place in the side.
After seeing their side contrive to throw away the win, fans were quick to voice their unhappiness on Twitter – with one saying they will get “ripped to shreds” at Hampden on Sunday.
Here are some of the comments from Rangers fans on Twitter:
Superb from middle to front, shitshow at the back. Goldson and Helander have been dozy.

Katic and edmunson must wonder what they’re doing wrong. Goldson and helander found out not for the first time 🤷🏼♂️

Not sure how you legislate for just how poorly we managed that game. Davis had his worst game since the Old Firm. Morelos his worst all season. Goldson and Helander the warning signs have been there since the Hamilton game and it's now cost us.

Can’t understand how Gerrard can watch Goldson and Helander and think: “yep they’ll do fir me!”

Everyone keeps telling me Goldson is our best centre back? I think Nikola Katic can be getting a wee bit upset he isn’t getting his chance. Helander & Goldson as I said before game are no good defensibly headering the ball.

Easily the most clueless CB pairing in Europe, will get ripped to shreds on Sunday if it’s Goldson and Helander
