Rangers' hopes of promotion to the Scottish Premiership ended on Sunday after a 3-0 loss at Fir Park against Motherwell, who won the tie 6-1 on aggregate.
Much of the damage was done in the first leg after Motherwell's 3-1 win at Ibrox, and a second half capitulation on Sunday gave Rangers no chance of a win.
Goals from Marvin Johnson, Lionel Ainsworth and John Sutton handed Ian Baraclough's men a comfortable win, keeping Motherwell in the top flight and resigning Rangers to another season in the Championship after being outclassed over two legs.
Now, the attention will turn to the future of manager Stuart McCall, whose contract will expire this summer despite having only arrived in March.
McCall took over amid chaos following the resignations of Ally McCoist and Kenny McDowall, getting Rangers back on track before a play-off campaign which saw the club miss out at the final hurdle.
However, it always seemed like McCall was handed the reins on a temporary basis and would only remain in charge if he got Rangers promoted - which he hasn't achieved.
Rangers fans were discussing McCall's future on Twitter after the defeat to Motherwell, and there is certainly a split between supporters who believe he should be given time to build his own team and those who think that Rangers should look in a different direction...
Here are some of the reactions from Rangers fans on Twitter after the 3-0 defeat to Motherwell, as they debate McCall's future...
McCall won't get the job now. The guy really tried for the club, I'll give him that.— Lewis (@TheLongPass) May 31, 2015
McCall did a job turning things around from where we were. Still never a Rangers manager in my book.— Chris Grimes (@chrsgrms) May 31, 2015
I can see McCall getting the job next Season. As long as he gets rid of Moshni & OAPs. Let him build his own Team #Rangers— Neal Bannister (@NeoBazza87) May 31, 2015
Championship again next year, McCall must stay, has to clear out the dross - it's time to rebuild for SPFL #Rangers— Evan Cross (@EvanDavidCross) May 31, 2015
I've always felt sorry for McCall getting his dream job and having to work with that lot, but it's time for a root and branch clearout— Tó Madeira (@ToMadeira7) May 31, 2015
McCall has no chance of Rangers job now. Deep down he must've known the deal was 'get promoted then we'll talk' harsh maybe but he's failed.— Rangers1ST (@Rangers1ST) May 31, 2015
Would be bitterly disappointed if McCall got the job full time. It's time for a total fresh start.— Alan Mckenzie (@TheAlanMckenzie) May 31, 2015
I'm all for a 1 year contract for Stuart McCall, which probably means it won't happen now #Rangers— Jack MacPherson (@6Jacky88) May 31, 2015
McCall shouldn't be the manager. Lets be honest, it's not been that great. #Rangers— Alan Cameron (@Alan_Cameron) May 31, 2015
