There’s still a bit of wreckage to sift through from the weekend, and we’re hoping today is going to be the last of it, in lieu of a triumphant and morale-boosting win in Holland on Wednesday.
But unfortunately, we have to draw attention to the utter shambles of not a single Rangers player facing the media after Saturday’s embarrassing capitulation in the east end of Glasgow.
We’ve given the captain a TONNE of credit and support this season, and he has represented us when things went wrong (faced the media after Hibs), but this… this was a doozy.
And no one from the playing staff had the balls to come out and say sorry.
You know who we’re actually most upset with? Steven Davis.
He’s supposed to be the great elder statesman of our playing squad, the one we must all respect and admire because he’s so good, but have you EVER seen his face when there was a bad result?
He was as rotten as anyone at the weekend and he was nowhere to be seen. Looking through our archives, he last represented us after a loss 3 and a half years ago, at Parkhead, funnily enough.
Since then, not a beep when the result went against us.
Tavernier, at least, did face the music v Hibs, but not a thing from him after Parkhead.
Not a thing from any of them.
Don’t get us wrong – we’d have slaughtered them no matter what they said, but at least we can give them credit for taking it on the chin. Like Scotty did, like Tav himself has done, like Goldson infamously did v Hibs (although he more deflected it onto his team mates’ chins).
But this time?
Could hear a penny drop.
