Paranoia flowed with anger and despair through Ibrox fans as thy watched their Treble dream die a death in Paisley last night.
Four months of incredible hype, good fortune and honest mistakes had the Gullible and Deluded preparing to party for the first time since their 2016 Petrotank Cup success over Peterhead.
Twenty-seven matches unbeaten- overlooking a Europa League defeat from Bayer Leverkusen was in the team hamper as the Gerrard Express rolled in to Paisley with Celtic, Hearts and Aberdeen- the team’s that have pumped Gerrard in cup ties- all safely out of the way.

A pre-match injury to Andrew Dallas resulted in a change of referee but when Conor Goldson opened the scoring that set-back seemed trivial.
After 97 minutes however it was a different story as the Irish upstarts from along the M8 scored three times to end James Tavernier’s dream of lifting a meaningful trophy.
The fall-out across Social Media has been mighty as Bears try to downplay a cup defeat while others warn of the frailties of the team and management that has consistently bottled it whenever they have got close to the trophy breakthrough.
