There were other moves in the selection and Craig Forbes said: “Interested to see if Hagi performs as it looks as if hes gonna slot into his natural position instead of front right.”
Graeme Robertson: “Been wanting Hagi to play CM for a while. Not got the pace for the forward area, needs to bulk up a bit but could be much more effecting in CM.”
Stephen Stephenson: “Hope Itten has a good game and gets a goal, the boy needs it.”
Jennifer Rennie: “Sensible line up, resting a lot of regular players as league is won. Keeping them for cup game.”
@AdamMil80244347: “Patterson unfairly benched imo.”

Sandy Hunter: “Good to see Tav back and a few fringe players getting a chance.”
Roy N Shaw: “Great to see Tav back. Let's not forget another big game tonight, Celtic v Gers ladies on BBC Alba – let's hope ladies win and go on and take title.”
The bench was also subject of much praise.
Scott Broadley: “Is that the best bench we have had ever?”

@sincy24: “Been years since rangers had a bench that good, Wright and Itten to score tonight.”
Meanwhile a few fans got creative with the line-up in Perth.
@R1130_: “A goal is Itten in the stars.”
@bnmurray: “If Buffalo comes on we could have a front three of Wright Ced Fred. (OK I'm sorry).”
