Steward Mocked On Twitter After Half Hearted Attempt To Stop Rangers Fans Invading The Pitch After 94th Minute Winner Against Partick Thistle

A Partick Thistle steward has gone viral for her lacklustre attempt to stop Rangers fans invading the pitch on Sunday afternoon.

Joe Garner's 94th-minute winner sparked wild scenes at Firhill, with a number of fans spilling out of the stand and onto the turf to celebrate.

And despite being heavily outnumbered, the helpless steward was mocked by some Twitter users after doing little to stop fans joining their heroes on the pitch.

A group of around 20 male fans climbed over the advertising hoardings and onto the pitch, grabbing Garner and his team-mates to celebrate a dramatic turnaround.

Pedro Caixinha's men had been 1-0 down with seven minutes of normal time remaining before goals from Barrie McKay and Garner turned the game on its head.

The steward was caught by one of BT Sport's cameras standing almost static with her arms outstretched as the travelling supporters ran onto the pitch with ease.
