    Re the comment about the cross coming from McGinns side, I think it was Cadden that let that come in.

    I wondered where McGinn was for the first goal. Being on the right of a back three I’d have expected him to be in that type of area but he seemed to be missing, although I’ve not seen it back.
    Just watched the highlights and yes it was Cadden who did not do a very good job of trying to close down the cross...perhaps he was tiring a bit at that point but as Pat Stanton kept saying during the commentary..."pay attention"...in other words stay focused...I think that would also have been what angered Jack Ross (a poor effort at closing the Rangers man down)......Jack mentioned in his post match interview that they had worked on stopping the crosses!! Also noticed that Morelos does a better job of gauging the cross....as soon as the cross is struck Morelos adjusts his position a couple of feet away from Hanlon.
    I know it's easy to watch it in slow mo after the fact, but I'm sure Jack will be analysing it with the squad.
    We've had too many goals against from headers!!

    Unfortunately I think it was Daz at fault for the 1st goal. He was a yard behind our other defenders and (possibly) played Roofe on. Paul H lost the ball for the 2nd but I thought Josh could have got closer also.

    No way Macey can come for either goal. Defenders not marking the men was the issue.
    I'm in the same boat as Jonnyboy......At 6ft 7in I'd like to see him come for more crosses. Also makes me a wee bit nervous the number of times he drops the ball. I like him though and I think he will develop. The more games he plays the more he will experience and hopefully his confidence and coaching will allow him to use his height to be more commanding with cross balls. He is a great shot stopper as we have seen many times.

    Macey should definitely have saved the Morelos header straight at him.

    The cross into the box was the problem

    Delivered into the box from a player that should have been sent off

    A perfect delivery over the head of our centre half

    The ball was in the corner of the net before you could say ‘Freddo’

    Macey had no chance

    Diving after the ball was in the pokey

    I think you need to look at the goal again it is straight at his left hand and he fumbles it off the post into the net.

    I think if he wasn't actually on the line or maybe a yard out it wouldn't have been a goal.

    Will look again but the pace of the ball from the diminutive striker appeared to beat him all ends up

    Edit

    No touch onto the post ball was in the net before he started diving

    Brilliant save from Hagi

    Totally unprotected as per usual

    Agree maybes Macey should start coming off his line a bit more

    Edit 2

    Now watched it on Sportscene for about the 100th time and the view from behind Mad McGregor’s goal shows Macey getting some sort of touch on it to deflect the ball in off the post

    Unlucky but should do better
