Rangers star Todd Cantwell has broken his Instagram silence after defeat to Celtic; and claims it’d be “cowardly” not to communicate with supporters.

The 25-year-old midfielder was one of the bright lights in a devastating campaign last season but has so far found himself out of form and Rangers out of sorts in the opening matches of the new season.

The club’s new signings have struggled to make an impact and a bereft Rangers support are looking for any kind of leadership as Michael Beale stares down the barrel of a loaded Ibrox gun.

Having been humiliated in Champions League qualification and having fallen to defeat against a patchwork Celtic team, Rangers are four points off their rivals and drop into the Europa League.

There’s an almighty stink around Ibrox and Todd Cantwell has taken to Instagram to seemingly front the flak that’s coming the Rangers team’s way.

Todd Cantwell takes to Instagram

Following the likes of Jack Butland in communicating directly with the fans, in a post on Instagram stories Todd Cantwell claims it’d have been cowardly to stay silent.

Whilst the ex-Norwich City star put in a committed display against Celtic, there was a distinct lack of quality from Todd Cantwell and all his teammates.

“We need actions not words however silence can seem cowardly in these times,” said Todd Cantwell On Instagram.

“We need unity and togetherness to turn this season successful. It’s not the start we wanted although everything is still in our hands.

“You fans are incredible and deserve to see better. Over to us.”

Whilst it all sounds great, Todd Cantwell is exactly right when he claims Rangers fans want to see “action not words” and all eyes will be on the midfielder when we kick off against St Johnstone.

The Gers support are certainly going through something right now with the club having two weeks to stew on as horrendous an Old Firm as we’ve experienced in recent seasons.

Until the players rectify the situation at Ibrox, this is all hot air, and it’s hot air which might just cost Michael Beale his job.
