It’s fair to say that Thursday night just wasn’t our night. Whilst the game against Spartak Moscow was an exciting one for neutrals, it wasn’t exactly what we were hoping for heading into the game.
We were hoping that the fixture would be used as a springboard following our win at the weekend, but it wasn’t to be.
Despite leading on more than one occasion, we eventually fell to a 4-3 defeat that, truthfully, we didn’t really deserve. Still, it’s a very disappointing result, and it just goes to show just how mixed our season has been so far.
However, fortunately, it doesn’t appear as though the Rangers faithful are ready to give up, and they’re certainly not ready to criticise the players.

However, many Rangers supporters have been quick to defend him, with lots of them looking ahead, rather than back on the game.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…

Our captain should have been the one speaking after the match tonight. Katic looks like he’s going to burst in to tears ????

All the big man needs is a couple of big tackles and headers…keep it simple and be strong!!

That defence got us this far. We can take one bad night no matter how painful. We have come on leaps and bounds. It is also still in our hands. We would have taken that at the very start! #letsgo
