As the Rangers players trudged from the field after yet another domestic horror show in the 1-0 defeat to Hamilton, only one player stayed behind the applaud the fans.

Amid the fire and fury of a seething Ibrox, many might say that it’s hard to blame the players for scuttling down the tunnel.

But you’ve got to hand it to 21-year-old George Edmundson for braving the anger of the Ibrox support to thank them for paying good money to watch the capitulating side.

There’s also an argument that the players were rushing off down the tunnel to let loose on one another, to spark an inquest which might actually change things at Ibrox.

But Steven Gerrard’s post-match comments quickly put an end to that.

The Ibrox gaffer claimed that the dressing room was “very quiet” after the match in depressing comments which are becoming all too common.


You get the feeling that most of the side probably couldn’t wait to get out of there.

It’s fair to say the Rangers support weren’t overly enthused with what Gerrard had to say after the game either.

Club captain James Tavernier is another who has come under fire from the Rangers support, largely for his programme notes before the defeat to Hamilton.

The Ibrox support might be hostile when things aren’t going well, but they still took the time to thank Edmundson for coming to thank them despite their anger.

Here’s what some fans had to say on Twitter:
