Rangers are going through a spectacular season as they still remain undefeated in the Scottish League One but everything has not been perfect for the team of Ally McCoist after being knocked out from the Scottish Cup when losing against Dundee United.
Despite losing 3-1 against Dundee United, McCoist refuses to put the blame on the goalkeeper of the club, Steve Simonsen who was recently been heavily critiqued in Twitter by fans.
“I may be an old dinosaur but I am seeing more negatives than positives from players on Twitter at the moment’’ he told the belgique russie cote website.
“I have said before we have to be extremely guarded as to what we do and what we say. Of course it was a mistake and he would be the first to admit that. But he also made one of the best saves I have seen all season up at Forfar, one of the top three saves I have seen anywhere this season’’.
“So you take the good with the bad and as I say with these social networking sites you run the risk of taking abuse from a certain type of individual. He is obviously extremely disappointed but I said after the game and I’ll say it again, we win and lose as a team’’.
Being knocked out from the Scottish Cup is a huge blow for Ally McCoist and his players as they have not been able on securing that silverware since 2009.
The 35 years old English goalkeeper of Rangers even had to close his twitter account due to the abundant number of criticism that he has been receiving following their elimination from the Scottish Cup.
Simonsen played his 2nd match since joining Rangers on September of 2013 after Cammy Bell had suffered a concussion and was not available to play.
