‘Shameful’ – Rangers fans meltdown after League Cup exit

Rangers fans were not too happy after the club slumped to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of St Mirren, knocking them out of the League Cup.

It is safe to say that not many Rangers fans would have expected the start to the season that they have enjoyed. They currently sit at the top of the table in the Premiership and are through to the knockout stage of the Europa League, having topped their group.

Last night though, their 27-game unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of St Mirren. And it also saw them crash out of the Scottish League Cup, in what is another failure in the club’s long-drawn quest to win a trophy.

It had looked like they had managed to rescue the game when Steven Davis scored a 88th minute equaliser for Steven Gerrard’s side, only for St Mirren’s Conor McCarthy to come up with a 92nd minute winner.

Safe to say that their fans were not too happy with the result and made their feelings known on Twitter:

This was a golden chance for the Rangers to win a trophy after Celtic had already been eliminated from the tournament. But that was not to be as they appeared to collapse under the pressure once again.

But that is not something new for Gerrard’s side. We have already seen them make good starts before things inevitably fall apart in the second half of the season. The only difference is that the Hoops have made a bad start to their campaign this time around, which has left them in a great position.

As we progress though, the pressure will continue to increase on the Rangers. It is them who are in the driver’s seat right now and the league is theirs to lose. Can this team perform under that kind of pressure? Their past record suggests that they can’t. And one has to wonder whether last night was the turning point that Celtic were looking for.
