Mark Warburton's Glasgow Rangers side were beaten 3-2 by Hibernian in the Scottish Cup final yesterday.
Glasgow Rangers supporters have criticised Rob Kiernan’s performance in the Scottish Cup final against Hibernian yesterday.
Rangers were beaten 3-2 by Hibs at Hampden Park, and their defensive performance in the contest was awful.
The Light Blues’ were exposed at the back on numerous occasions, and Kiernan has taken the brunt of supporters' criticism.
His role in allowing Anthony Stokes to score the first has received particular criticism.
Stokes cut in from the left, and he was left completely unopposed, as he curled the ball in at the far post to open the scoring.
Rangers fans are now suggesting that Kiernan may need to be replaced in the summer, as Mark Warburton’s side prepare for life in the Scottish Premiership.
The Ibrox side realise that there is plenty of work to be done, if they are to compete for the title in the top tier, and the fear is that Kiernan will not make the grade.
Wes, Tav, Halliday, kiernan and Wilson would not be near my starting 11 next season.— Daryl Young. (@DY1872) May 21, 2016
Rangers badly need an old-fashioned centre-half who can dominate the penalty box. Wilson & Kiernan can play football, but that's not enough.— Carson's Cat (@CarsonsCat) May 21, 2016
Hibs deserved to win. Rangers were utter shite. The defence was horrible, Kiernan was woeful from the start. Seem Miller was only one trying— Ryan Galbraith (@RGalbs) May 21, 2016
I'd keep Wilson and Wallace , Tavernier and Kiernan can go.— Chris Scott (@christtocs) May 21, 2016
Ad rather have Mohnsi than Kiernan at the back— Ally (@AlistairQuinton) May 21, 2016
Tav and kiernan looked like they were on ice— Gavin Macdonald (@GavinMac1994) May 21, 2016
Need a complete rebuild at the back, Wilson Kiernan and Tav were a shambles and we've no defensive cover needs to get sorted— Pirlo (@GrantRedmondx) May 21, 2016
Today proved again, we can't go into premiership with Tavernier, Kiernan & Wilson in the defence. Foderingham proved me wrong big time.— David Nimmo (@Nimsay1872) May 21, 2016
If Mark Warburton wants to play like that, he needs to sign CBs who can defend one-on-one. Kiernan is awful at it, Wilson not much better— Callum Hamilton (@Callum_TH) May 21, 2016
Despite their defeat to Hibs yesterday, Rangers still won the double this past season and can reflect on the campaign with a great deal of pride.
