Celtic fans were in full trolling mode last night as Steven Gerrard nudged closer to the exit door.
A 2-0 home defeat to Aberdeen sent many Sevco fans towards the conclusion that the former Liverpool youth coach isn’t the man to win their club their first ever major trophy.
December’s derby victory over Celtic sent expectations of success soaring with the signings of Jermain Defoe and Steve Davis a message of intent that the Banter Years were over.
This morning their Scottish Cup hopes have been ended in the second worst way possible- in front of 850 gloating Aberdeen fans enjoying their third win in Glasgow of the season.
A spineless side devoid of characters and winners is the result of last summer’s transfer activity with only Allan McGregor spared criticism.
Gerrard has regularly chucked his players under the bus, keen to distance himself from the failures that have left his side trailing Celtic by eight points despite the departures of Moussa Dembele and Brendan Rodgers.
The current Ibrox boss refused to go into the dressing room at the final whistle last night but all of the players know that the easiest solution for any club in trouble is to sack the boss as Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha discovered when hype gave way to reality.

The closest anyone at Ibrox will get near to a title.

On the 29th of December Rangers recorded their first league win over Celtic in 7 years.
They moved level on points, and Steven Gerrard was hailed as this master tactian who was gonna stop Celtic’s dominance.
73 days later and their season is over.
