A gentleman on our social media channels said the above following Rangers’ rotten afternoon in Leith, and he’s dead right.

While performances and results have already fallen short this season, a win in Holland, against the odds, and a secured place in the Champions League would absolutely lift this club in a massive way, opening all sorts of doors.

And yes, the absolute shambles at Easter Road would be quickly forgotten by us fickle fans who are down in the dumps at a bad result and higher than a kite at a good one.

So much rests on Wednesday, and while Ibrox Noise cannot see how a side who cannot beat PSV at home or Hibs away can travel to the Philips Stadion and win at such a cauldron, we’d absolutely love love love (Kevin Keegan) to be wrong.

We support the side always, and only want the best for the club, but given Gio’s absolutely shocking European away record (one career win on his travels as a manager) and Rangers’ rather poor Euro record away under him (just one win, which funnily enough, was Gio’s only as a manager) we do not see how this is remotely possible.

Given what was on the line in Belgium, our display was horrific, and the result completely merited.

Even more painfully, but for an inexplicable gift of a penalty right on the stroke of half time, we weren’t great in the first half of the return leg either.

And since then we’ve racked up just one further win – over a hapless St Johnstone we struggled against for long enough, again in that slow first half.

We’re not trying to be negative, to be curmudgeons deliberately, but we’re just trying to be realistic and honest.

Would you rather us lie and say we’ll 100% win, back the team, and end the analysis there?

Or do we call it as it currently is?

The guy is dead on though – a win in Holland would be the massive injection the club needs, and it would fix so much of the current malaise.

Celtic dropping points today wouldn’t hurt either…

  1. I would be stunned if Ceptic dropped points against our Edinburgh brothers, can only hope and pray but as for Wednesday next week, on our form l just cannot see us perform like we did with the scouser in charge, if we play like we did yesterday, it will be a similar result what Dundee United had against AZ in Europe, Gio I’d needing to completely change our starting 11 and drop a few players like hot rocks or we will be humiliated and give the parasites from the east more to laugh at

  2. We are fickle without a doubt and yes a win on Wednesday would cheer us up massively but it won’t eradicate the problems we’ve got in defence and in our current attitude. Let’s hope it can happen …WATP

  3. Glossed over for a while at best. I just shudder to think we do qualify for the group stage and then face Liverpool, City, Bayern or PSG with our defence.

  4. I expect the earth to be consumed by a black hole on wednesday. More chance of this happening than our defence showing up.

  5. We all said the same last season when dropping points in the domestic fare ,unfortunatley I do not think this will wash this season ,and already points been dropped domestically .
    The league HAS to come first this season with europe a bonus .
    Fed up being second to that shower of shite .
