Former Rangers midfielder David Templeton has won the Scottish Premiership Player of the Month award for his displays for Hamilton throughout November - and Rangers fans have reacted on Twitter.

The 28-year-old had a hand in four goals during his three outings for Hamilton in the top tier of Scottish football, scoring two goals against Aberdeen and former side Rangers as well as providing assists when facing the Dons and Hibernian.


Accies boss Martin Canning also held aloft the Manager of the Month award, as he guided his side to two impressive draws against Aberdeen and Hibernian as well as a 2-0 win over Templeton's former side.

Templeton and another ex-Rangers ace Darren Lyon scored in the win, taking his tally for the season to four goals and five assists from midfield in 15 league and cup outings.
