Graeme Murty saw his Rangers side earn a narrow 1-0 win over Brazilian outfit Atletico Mineiro on Thursday night at the Orlando City Stadium in the Florida Cup - but Ibrox fans have blasted Dalcio's performance during the victory.

Gers boss Murty fielded a side that included youngsters Aidan Wilson and Serge Atakayi as well as new signings Sean Goss and Jamie Murphy before making 10 changes at half-time.

With the score goalless at the break, in-form attacker Josh Windass popped up in the 68th minute to curl an excellent effort into the back of the net in what had been an equal match throughout the contest.

Murty, 43, handed outcast Dalcio a start in the unusual position of left-back, as the Benfica loanee remains with the Gers despite making just three appearances for the Gers - totalling in 134 minutes of competitive first-team action this term.

Rangers fans took to Twitter to express their dismay at the 21-year-old's performance, with no sympathy reserved for the Portuguese winger signed by Pedro Caixinha despite playing out of position in defence.

One fan even described the winger as a "waste of a jersey".
