Hibs fans were annoyed with their team's listless performance against Rangers.

Here are a selection of tweets from disgruntled Hibs fans after their team's comprehensive defeat by Rangers.

@HibsCentral: “Below average performance IMO got exactly what we deserved, nothing. Porteous tackle an absolute shocker and deserves whatever punishment comes his way. You just cannot do that. Red all day long! Dust ourselves down and onto the next one.”

@Steve_Hibees: “If we don’t win on Boxing Day, get rid of the lot of them. That was pathetic. A more gutless performance you’ll struggle to find.”

@ooo2be: “Come on Ron , time to splash the cash.”

@AlonsoRmcf: “Spineless performance.”

@ses101: “Two new defenders and two strong midfielders are a must in January. And I hope Ross has another goalkeeper up his sleeve, because none of the ones we currently have are the answer.”

@HomeOfHibs: “Am aw for hating the old firm & hearts etc but let’s no get ourselfs banned from games with 2 minutes of madness throwing bottles etc just no need you lose out by getting banned or the fellow fans could be effected if they close certain sections.”

@HibsNews1875: “Looking at the goals, Rangers first was just so poor from Marciano. Hibs never recovered from that moment on. The second goal was an unmarked player in the box... good finish though. Then the third is just horrific. Defoe unchallenged six yards out. Another reminder that signings are required in January. Never laid a glove on Rangers today. Defensively poor, midfield non-existent and overall lacking a good few players.”

@Wightman37: “The fact we have not had ONE shot at goal at home makes it totally unacceptable. where is the pride in the badge ???”

@R11Loading: “Marciano, Stevenson, Hanlon, Naismith, Mallan, Allan if he doesn’t wake up, Doidge, Kamberi. Not good enough. Big transfer window coming.”

@62Sauzee: “Porteous sending off was sadly predictable.”
