The veteran defender did not have one of his best days at the office.
It was a special day at West Brom yesterday, as they paid homage to their club legend Jeff Astle. However, the poignant day did not end well for the team.
They lost to relegation candidates Leicester City at The Hawthorns after Jamie Vardy netted a late winner and sent the away fans into raptures.
It was another poor result from The Baggies, following on from there 4-1 trouncing v QPR last weekend. It was their third defeat in a row and, on just 32 points, they are not out of the relegation battle just yet.
So how can they turn things around?
One idea West Brom fans have is to pull out Gareth McAuley from the first-team. The 35-year-old is undoubtedly a fantastic servant to the club. But age is not doing him any favours. His form has dropped in recent times and it has shown.
He has always lacked pace, but his decision making is also beginning to go and it would seem his time in the starting line-up is seemingly coming to an end.
Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to his poor performance...
I would actually give Wisdom a game next week. Drop McAuley put Dawson alongside Lescott.#wba— wba1993dave (@wba1993_dave) April 12, 2015
A lot of fans slating Lescott & McAuley! Short memories some! JL without doubt our player of the season & GM has always been brilliant #WBA— Jason A Hickman (@HurricaneHic147) April 12, 2015
How many more individual mistakes is McAuley going to make?! #wba— Sean Willetts (@swilletts) April 12, 2015
McAuley 4 Great servant but worst performance in WBA shirt (1 of a number of late) Directly responsible for 1st & 3rd goals— TheReturnofTwitchy (@martincroom) April 11, 2015
He's been a great servant but what an earth was McAuley doing horrendous defending #wba— Martyn Walters (@Martw90) April 11, 2015
Told you all McAuley is finished but he's a nice bloke ain't he? #wba— Lowe (@Lowewba) April 11, 2015
Not great from either Albion centre-half. McAuley lost out to Ulloa and Lescott lost track of Nugent. #wba— Steve Madeley (@smadeley_star) April 11, 2015
