Rangers suffered a shock defeat in the Scottish League Cup on Wednesday night, losing 3-2 against St Mirren.

The Gers went in front early through Connor Goldson and it looked like it would be a routine performance from Steven Gerrard’s side.

However, the game was turned on its head after two goals from Jamie McGrath gave the hosts the lead.

Steven Davis looked like he rescued a draw late on, equalising in the 88th minute, only for Conor McCarthy to grab a winner in the dying seconds.

Jim Goodwin’s side move into the last four as Rangers miss out on a potential golden opportunity to win their first trophy under Gerrard.

The former England international named a competitive starting XI, with Cedric Itten and Bongani Zungu coming into the side on Wednesday night.

It was a painful end to Rangers’ incredible unbeaten run this season and a defeat that sent shockwaves through the Gers’ fanbase.

Speaking after the game, as reported by The Herald, Gerrard issued a rallying cry to his players to ensure that the defeat does not linger ahead of the meeting with Motherwell on Saturday – where the Gers can move 16 points clear at the top.

On the defeat, Gerrard claimed the reactions from the players will be crucial: “I know what I’ll be doing. I’ll be trying to react in a positive way. Of course, it will sting. It will hurt. But it’s my job to pick them up and make use they go again.”

These fans on social media had a lot to say about the performance and the approach from Gerrard and here are some of the best reactions.
