Philippe Clement’s Rangers honeymoon is well and truly over after another horrible afternoon from him and the team he selected collapsed in shock style at Dingwall and was deservedly beaten by a second-bottom side fighting for survival.

We can honestly say now we a tonne less faith in Clement right now – his one big moment, the league cup, was won by avoiding Celtic, and while it was still a trophy, Rangers and our managers are measured v Celtic.

And to go from a dismal 3-3 last week (we remain embarrassed by many fans’ reactions of elation to that draw, as well as the manager’s praise of the character shown) to a truly well-deserved 3-2 loss at the hands of the clusterf*ck side that is Ross County is the most embarrassing result Rangers have ever suffered.

This is a Ross County, remember, that Derek Adams walked away from, citing ‘issues within’, who couldn’t buy a win, and who are staring the drop in the face.

So what does Big Phil do?

Another shambles of a lineup, with the only positive being the absence of Scott Wright altogether.

Can’t blame Scotty for this one Philippe.

No this is heavily on you, and the pure faith we at Ibrox Noise had in you based on your stunning CV and that league cup win has massively diminished.

He does the same as every predecessor. Saunters in, goes on a great run, looks like the saviour, then the results collapse and he remains unwilling to change the things that need changed.

As long as Tav and Goldson remain untouchable, it’s why we have 3 trophies since 2011.

We’re sick and fed up of the same old nonsense kicking in after a while, and no matter who the manager is, it’s the same patterns.

Saviour arrives, sensational history-breaking run of brilliance, then he meets Celtic, it collapses, and Tav and Goldson sit there looking confused while Leon Balogun sits idly on the bench.

Is 56 gone? Well this was a 3 points we counted on. We’ve lost any chance of having this in our own hands and we’ve given all the initiative back to Celtic.

We’re pretty sure Clement didn’t even bother with shaking Don Cowie’s hand at the end either.

There is so much to pick through, but goodness – the Clement honeymoon is completely done for us.
