So the wreckage of another appalling disintegration has taken full place, with Rangers now completely in ‘Michael Beale’ or 22/23 Gio territory, that point where the players lose all sense of passion, urgency or desire, and stop playing for the manager.

Our stats earlier demonstrated that as much as we all ended up disliking Michael Beale, overall he fares no better or worse than any other manager we ever have, and Philippe Clement’s reign is now in full on meltdown mode.

It’s not all about the boss – the players are a shambles yet again, every season the same patterns appearing:

Saviour arrives, performances get sorted, everything is great, we even win a trophy, but then the wheels come off, the players lose all their direction, and the manager gets it in the neck. And then loses his job.

Rinse and repeat.

Of course, Clement has a big part of this, he is picking the same serial losers every time, and hoping for different results.

He’s not getting them because like every manager, for whatever reason, he sticks with the same players who don’t deliver, usually the same bottlers, who let the fans down every season.

And now we’re back to square one.

We have a team who have now lost to Ross County and Motherwell, and tonight, drawn with Dundee.

Points down the swanny.

Two wins in 8 matches pretty much shows the picture of the malaise now set in firmly under Clement, and we only have limited sympathy for him because he’s part of the problem.

For all the heroics he was offering a couple of months ago, it’s turned on its head and he has no answers.

Well, he does, but he chooses (or can’t) use them.

Once again another season looks like it’s done and dusted, as Rangers crumble at the wrong time as usual.

Rinse and repeat.
