Kilmarnock supporters are far from happy after goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann was sent off in the first half of their side's Scottish Cup replay defeat to Rangers.

Man of the Match Alfredo Morelos scored FOUR goals for the Gers to tee up a quarter-final clash at Aberdeen next month, his last two goals coming after substitute Andy Halliday added Rangers' third on 77 minutes.

In between Morelos' two first half strikes, Killie goalkeeper Bachmann was dismissed for an off the ball incident as Rangers' recent signing Glen Kamara went down.

The claim was that the former Dundee midfielder was caught by the keeper's elbow but social media didn't agree with referee Alan Muir's decision to issue the red card.

Here's the incident, which occured 24 minutes in:

The fans weren't best pleased:

Even Rangers these supporters admitted it was soft:

After his side's narrow defeat to Celtic on Sunday, Bachmann had spoken out about his belief that the Old Firm teams get the lion's share of the decisions against the other Scottish Premiership sides.

"It's the same every time we play these teams it's just something we need to get used to," he said. "You never get the small decisions. It's not just against us, it's against all the other teams as well."

Kilmarnock and Rangers had played out a 0-0 draw at Rugby Park earlier this month.
