Many Rangers fans have ripped into Jack Simpson after he finally made his debut for Rangers in Sunday’s 4-1 win over Dundee United.
Simpson arrived at Ibrox on deadline day after initially agreeing a pre-contract deal with the club earlier in the window.
He has had to wait for his chance to get his Rangers debut but he finally pulled on the shirt as a second-half substitute against Dundee United.

➡️ ON: Jermain Defoe & Jack Simpson

It was far from a dream debut for the defender.
Simpson lost his man while defending late in the game and this allowed the visitors to pull a goal back and cost Steven Gerrard’s side a clean sheet.
He didn’t look switched on as he also struggled to win the ball back during his brief outing at Ibrox.
It was a fairly amateurish mistake from Simpson and many Bears were left unimpressed with the new signing after this error.
One Gers fan thinks Allan McGregor will be having words with Simpson later after the defender dashed his chances of keeping a well earned clean sheet.
Others were left unimpressed with Simpson generally and warned the player that he can’t afford to stroll through games.
Here is how some Rangers fans reacted to Simpson’s debut.
Don't want to be too harsh but Simpson ain't covered himself in glory there

Someone tell Simpson you can’t stroll it up here.

Poor from Simpson there. Not good enough.

The boy Simpson has to be much stronger in the tackle there! 🤷🏼♂️🙈

Not the strongest bit of defending from Simpson, but he is making his debut. I’m sure McGregor will have a calm, quiet word with him in the dressing room after…

Don’t want to be too harsh on a guy making his first appearance but Jack Simpson hasn’t looked secure at all.

Poor from Simpson there. Needs to be more aggressive

No been funny but Jack Simpson has played 1 conceded 1 and lost his man for the goal
I’m no happy jack. Buck it up pal

Hopefully, Simpson learns from this mistake and improves because based on today’s showing he won’t be challenging Connor Goldson for his space anytime soon.
