The silence was deafening in terms of official communication from Ibrox yesterday.

Usually, there’s a steady flow of content from the club’s Twitter account, throughout the course of the day.

Yet, on Wednesday, there was nothing.

No original content, anyway. Two retweets of material connected to Rangers Charity activity, but otherwise, the feed was barren.

It seems that in a meeting somewhere, it was decided that the best way to deal with the Scottish Cup exit was to clam up over social media.

In fairness, it probably wasn’t a bad ploy.

The fans are angry and a RangersTV interview or some snaps from training wouldn’t have solved that.

Had the Gers stormed through to the semi-final, it would undoubtedly have been a different story.

Yet, with Steven Gerrard coming under fire for his tactics and senior players criticised for shirking the post-match interview, it was time to lay low.

However, grumbling and introspection done, it’s now time for everyone involved with the club to dust themselves off ahead of the weekend.

Kilmarnock travel to Ibrox on Saturday and it’s time to salvage some pride.

Silverware looks out of reach, but many of the players are now playing for their Ibrox futures.
