After tonight’s lamentable ‘display’ against Aberdeen, we’ll make this a short one to avoid being too emotionally knee-jerk following such a complete mess in Govan.
Tonight’s replay was all about the cup – the one big chance Rangers had to make a real fist at silverware this season – and to say the players and managers failed spectacularly is an understatement.
That in the opening 82 minutes the home side had mustered all of one shot on target says it all for how poorly things are going at Ibrox right now.
Of the past three matches, no wins – filled with powderpuff football reminiscent of the Warburton era.
Sure, we get loads of the ball, and play a little fancy footwork, but when it comes to putting the ball in the net, for the side second in the table for goals scored (just one behind Celtic) we’re remarkably bad at it.
It seems the mental strength and bottle of this side is minimal – it chokes on the big occasions more often than not, and those chokes cost big.
Twice now Steven Gerrard’s men capitulated at the hands of McInnes in the cup – two embarrassing exits – we’ll try to bite our tongues for fear of saying things we’ll regret.
But hey, at least Steven Davis got a run out…
