Rangers defender Nikola Katic has made a strong reply to Gary Dicker who criticized the Gers’ players for walking off the pitch without shaking hands with Kilmarnock players, as per Daily Record.
The Killie defender called them bad losers for their behavior in the midweek match that saw Steven Gerrard’s side lose 2-1 at Rugby Park.
But the Light Blues centre-half has responded to the criticism by claiming his anger was due to an opposition player’s heavy tackle on him in the last few seconds of the match.
“I was disappointed. But he has to look at a tackle from his team-mate on me in the last 10 seconds.
“He will see everything.”
While Dicker’s comments after the match were:
“I didn’t even see it (Katic incident). I didn’t see any of their players and I can’t remember any of them shaking any of our boys hands. They all just went down the tunnel.
“That’s up to them what they do and how they react.
“I’m sure when we played them and lost on Boxing Day, it wasn’t the same thing. That’s football isn’t it. People act how they want to act. There’s nothing I can do about that.”
The Ibrox side have been struggling to maintain a consistent form this year with defeats against Hearts and Kilmarnock further widening their points gap with rivals Celtic.
They are currently 10 points behind Neil Lennon’s side in the Scottish League but they also have a game in their hands.
