David Edgar Criticizes Unpunished “Shocker” on Ross McCausland

Rangers faced a setback not only in the form of a 2-1 defeat to Motherwell but also with another player sidelined due to a contentious challenge. According to David Edgar, the Light Blues’ woes intensified after Ross McCausland fell victim to what he deemed a “shocker” of a tackle from Dan Casey.

Stuart Kettlewell’s Motherwell emerged victorious in the Scottish Premiership encounter, courtesy of goals from Theo Blair and Casey. However, the match took a turn for the worse for Philippe Clement’s side when McCausland had to be substituted midway through the first half due to an injury sustained from Casey’s challenge.

Expressing his dismay, David Edgar criticized the apparent lack of repercussions for Casey’s tackle. In a statement on Saturday (2 March), Edgar remarked, “Another of our players injured by a shocker which goes unpunished.”

Despite the defeat, Rangers had a prime opportunity to widen their lead at the summit of the Premiership. However, defensive lapses and a lack of offensive prowess left Clement’s side unable to secure the coveted three points in a match that showcased both the highs and lows of football at Ibrox.
