Despite Rangers’ near-perfect start this season, a lot of fans whined about the score last night and even more whined about the Livi result.
Someone who knows a hell of a lot more about being in the Rangers team and what it means than most of us is Nikola Katic, and we’d like to draw your attention to this quote from him a few weeks ago:
Let that sink in – megabillionaires Man City struggle with teams who park the bus, and yet our fans are whining because we dropped two points at Livi because, as Katic said, 10 men were behind the ball and they just couldn’t score.
Man City, who find themselves up against a wall of defenders and sometimes struggle to break them down, despite being coached by one of the top three managers in world football in Pep Guardiola, can’t score against teams parking the bus, and our fans want Steven Gerrard fired and that he doesn’t have a clue when Rangers hit the same issue against a Livi fighting for its life?
Does anyone see the ever-so-slight flaw here?
Rangers fans are deeply, astonishingly, infinitely unforgiving, but this is plain irrational. Yes, we were all upset after dropping those two points, but the problem here is some fans still haven’t moved on.
Yesterday the lack of satisfaction over the win and instead focus on the lack of goals was genuinely unnerving.
Man City can’t score against Wolves (or someone) but if Stevie fails similarly against Livi he’s to be fired?
Sometimes, folks, we just can’t score. It occasionally happens. But harbouring it for the rest of eternity as a stick to beat the club with isn’t really productive at all.
Niko says so.
