What we expecting today at the press conference?

We tried to play out a 1-0 win against a side who in the last 30mins started chucking everything at us. It was inevitable that we would concede. That is on Gerrard and his inability to make correct changes. Forget the ref for a second, had our players done their job we'd have scored more than once.

You see awful officiating every game up here, with all teams, that lot probably had a few bad calls against Hearts, didn't stop them scoring 5 against them. There's the difference, they get the job done easily. We struggle every single game against these teams who sit in. We don't know how to play through it.
I doubt very much they had any match changing calls go against them the other night, or indeed at any point during the season. That's a big part of the problem.

Your point on Gerrard not changing things is bang on the money. It has proved to be a major weakness thus far in his managerial career. It is an area in which he needs marked improvement.

I could perhaps agree with you if you were describing some who were causing crowd trouble or the like but not for disagreeing on team selection or tactical matters.
Its not team selection or tactical matters though. It's ridiculous comparisons between Gerrard and Warburton. People are watching the wrong game if they cant see the difference between the fcukin state of us then and where we are now.

At what point do we stop using that as an excuse? We’ve got the second biggest budget in the league by far.

I keep seeing people say we’re so far behind Celtic because they have a bigger budget yet we’ve capitulated against teams who’s budget is way less than ours.

Fans need to stop with the “look how far we’ve come mantra” as a basis of arguments against pathetic results
We've lost 3 games all season mate ffs.

Far better Rangers teams with 4/5 times the budget have been out of Title Races by now.

It is part of the issue, their mental wage bill means that they’ve got better replacements.

So if that’s the case, why do fans still use “look how far we’ve came” as an argument then?

Truth is, the gap between us/Celtic and the rest of the league is arguably as big as it’s ever been - whenever points are dropped it’s such a big deal because it’s such a shock.

Celtic are steamrolling teams on a regular basis whereas we’ve been stumbling along outwith a handful of games.

So using that logic, we should’ve had better replacements than the teams we’ve dropped points against? If so, why did we not beat them?

The budget is a sidepoint that’s been raised to deflect on our pathetic run of results
