Ejaria has been somewhat inconsistent since his loan move to Rangers.

Rangers missed the chance to extend their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table on Wednesday night as they lost to Derek McInnes' Aberdeen 1-0 at Ibrox - and Gers fans have slammed the performance of Ovie Ejaria.

Scott McKenna scored the only goal of the game with an exquisite volley from 10 yards out in just the seventh minute, and the scoreline remained the same - largely thanks to the performance of Dons goalkeeper Joe Lewis.

Aberdeen went down to 10 men in the first half, with striker Sam Cosgrove seeing red for two yellow cards - the second being slightly controversial as he challenged Connor Goldson.

 

But Rangers also received a red card, with fiery forward Alfredo Morelos picking up a second yellow card for lashing out at Dons captain Graeme Shinnie. It was his third red card of the season.

The likes of Morelos, Glenn Middleton, Gareth McAuley and more had chances to find the back of the net for the Gers, but Steven Gerrard's side could not find the moment of quality to level the scores.

Rangers fans took to Twitter after the match to share their views on the 1-0 loss, which was an opportunity missed as Old Firm rivals Celtic failed to beat Motherwell at Fir Park - drawing 1-1. Kilmarnock have gone top, after beating Livingston.

Supporters seemed to blame midfielder Ejaria more than most for another underwhelming performance from the Liverpool loanee, as the Gers' number 10 continues to prove inconsistent.
