Rangers drew 0-0 with FC Progrès Niederkorn of Luxembourg last night, failing to find the net with their attack looking blunt.
According to the Daily Record, Steven Gerrard said he won’t bother watching the match back because it was such a ‘grind’, though the Scottish side progressed into the next round of qualifiers having won the first leg of the tie 2-0.
Fans, though, were not impressed with Reds loanee Sheyi Ojo, who endured a frustrating night. Many were probably wishing Ryan Kent was still there, though Rangers will almost certainly be priced out of a move for him.
As these tweets show, Ojo has got work to do in order to fill that Kent void.
Ojo is going to be so frustrating

Sheyi Ojo is allergic to passing the ball.

Early days but we missed Morelos and ojo looked like he would never pass the ball

Ojo doesn’t pass quick enough always wants to beat another man, very young player long way to go

Anyone else watching ojo and getting frustrated. You can see what he should do either a pass or take a player on and he doesn’t do either.

Ojo has got a lot of talent, but he still has a lot of learning to do. Hopefully, Gerrard and Rangers can coax that out of him over the coming season, improving his decision-making in the final third.
Rangers will face Danish side FC Midtjylland in round three of Europa League qualifying, where they will have to be much-improved if they are to progress.
