Rangers fans react as Ibrox exile Greg Docherty shines in 6-0 win

A Rangers fan shows his support during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox Stadium on September 23, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

The Rangers midfielder was allowed to leave Ibrox on loan by Steven Gerrard.

Greg Docherty's productive spell away from Ibrox continued on Tuesday, with the Rangers loanee shining in Shrewsbury Town's 6-0 EFL Trophy win against Tranmere Rovers.

As well as scoring the Shrews' second goal, the lifelong Rangers fan created one each for Lenell John-Lewis, Omar Beckles and Fejiri Okenabirhie, drawing the following praise from Town supporters...






Docherty only moved to Ibrox in January from Hamilton, but was allowed to leave on a season-long loan after Steven Gerrard's arrival as manager in May.

Aged just 22, however, and with three years left on his Rangers contract after this one, Docherty's career with the Glasgow giants isn't over yet.

And that is certainly the case for these Gers fans...









Rangers currently employ as many as eight first team players capable of playing in Docherty's position, although the loan spells of two of those - Ovie Ejaria and Lassana Coulibaly - expire upon the Glaswegian's return.
