The Rangers goalkeeper recently had his spell away from Ibrox extended by Steven Gerrard.
The loaned-out Rangers goalkeeper, Jak Alnwick, is being criticised by some neutral fans.
Rangers recently allowed Alnwick to extend his spell at Scunthorpe United until the end of the season, after he impressed for the side managed by the former Ibrox player and manager, Stuart McCall.
But he appeared at fault for Barnsley's opener on Saturday (no thanks to the low winter sun) as Alex Mowatt's 3-yard strike swerved into the side of the goal he looked to have covered.
Alnwick pointed to the sky immediately afterwards, and was soon presented with a cap from a Scunthorpe fan behind the goal.
But not everyone was quite so sympathetic towards the Rangers-owned player...

Get the match fixing squad on that keeper.— SJC (@StephenCurley1) 2 February 2019
Did they get that keeper out the crowd ♂️— newby08 (@newby08) 2 February 2019
Some Scunthorpe fans have, however, come to Alnwick's defence in the meantime.
The keeper Alnwick was blinded by the sun. Not to mention Hammil was down with a head injury at the time yet the ref didn't stop the game.— Charlie Betts (@Charliebetts201) 3 February 2019
Jak alnwick is one of the best goalkeepers in league one. https://t.co/CayttqKAL0— Ben Fussey 94 (@officialFussey) 3 February 2019
Yep. Why didn't Alnwick have a cap on from the start?? The sun was in our eyes so it must have been in his. That was an error on his part.— Andrew Williamson (@mapleiron1) 3 February 2019
Alnwick - professional goal keeper my arse— John bryan (@jonyb83) 2 February 2019
For Barnsley's first goal today, at first I thought Alnwick wanted to replica Karius' 2nd blunder in the CL final, obviously after the kickoff started again, the sun was very bright blocking his view. Just the luck we didn't need— Luke Johnston (@Luke_JSUFC) 2 February 2019
Alnwick has 18 months left on his contract at Rangers, but faces a fight to break into Steven Gerrard's plan upon his return to Ibrox.
Allan McGregor has excelled in goal for the Gers this season, where he is now backed up by Wes Foderingham and Andy Firth - the latter a January arrival at Ibrox from Barrow AFC.
