There’s probably no-one else more eager to banish the memories of Wednesday night’s defeat to Kilmarnock than Rangers’ Joe Worrall.
The on-loan Nottingham Forest defender had a mare from which Rangers couldn’t recover. In acres of space, with Rangers 1-0 up and in control of the match, Worrall criminally surrendered the ball to Eamonn Brophy who went on to level the match.
And from this picture, it is insane that any player should lose the ball from that position.

Worrall has options to the left, centre, right and behind him. He could even hoof it up front to Morelos. There is no pressure on him and a clear 20 yards between him and an opponent.
It beggars belief.
Brophy picked the defender’s pocket and put Kilmarnock back on level terms. Gerrard saw it as the pivotal incident in the match.

Rangers’ Joe Worrall will probably sees it as a pivotal incident in his career. He got himself in a right mess and has put the side under immense pressure.

Rangers now need to string together a run of games to stay in any title hunt. Worrall must now stop trying to be Sergio Ramos and focus on doing the simple things well.
But will the Englishman get that chance? There have been very vocal calls from fans to reinstate a favourite who’s found himself out of the team.
