'Devastated' - BBC pundit accuses Rangers fans of looking past St. Mirren before defeat
Steven Thompson has accused Rangers fans of looking past St. Mirren before their 3-2 defeat on Wednesday evening.
St. Mirren ended the Bears’ incredible 27-game unbeaten streak in the Quarter-Finals with a last-gasp winner from a corner.
Steven Davis had equalised only minutes before, but the Gers’ slack defending saw the home side capitalise – something Thompson believes will leave the Light Blues “devastated.”
Speaking on BBC Sportsound after the game, Thompson claimed that the Gers would have fancied their name on the League Cup trophy already.
“I think Rangers as a club, the supporters, will be absolutely devastated by that,” he said.
“The season they’ve been having they would have thought that they would have come here this evening and progressed into the semi-final – playing against St. Mirren in a quarter-final with the Celtic not in it, I think a lot of Rangers supporters will have fancied their name was on the trophy already.”
With Celtic already out of the competition, this was the perfect opportunity for the Gers to finally pick up some silverware.
Rangers were slack in defence, and there was no way that they should have conceded three goals, it isn’t acceptable.
After having such an incredible defensive record this season, the final goal was a joke – after Allan McGregor made a save, no one reacted.
This is a reality check.
No one will be going into any game between now and the end of the season thinking it is an easy win, and the Gers need to use this as motivation to bring home the Premiership title and not collapse like this again.
