Rangers fans stunned as Umar Sadiq named in Europa League Team of the Week

Rangers fans on Twitter have reacted with bewilderment and amusement after Ibrox comedy figure Umar Sadiq was named in UEFA’s team of the week.

The Ibrox flop was named in the ‘dream team’ alongside PSV’s Donyell Malen after the Nigerian hit a double for Partizan Belgrade in their 2-1 win over Astana.

Sadiq will be remembered by Rangers fans for having all the poise of a newly-born giraffe on a tequila bender so his inclusion in the team of the week has brought plenty of shock to fans on Twitter.

The Nigerian only made four appearances during his time at Ibrox before his loan was ended six months early and he lost any goodwill he had with the fans after an embarrassing dive against Aberdeen in the League Cup semi-final defeat at Hampden.

After struggling to make the grade at Roma, he was shipped back out on loan to Belgrade where it appears things are going a little better for him than they did in Glasgow.

Gers fans though couldn’t help themselves when he appeared in the Team of the Week as they expressed their disbelief.

Here are some of the best comments from fans after Sadiq made UEFA’s Team of the Week for Matchday Two:
