Rangers suffered a heavy defeat to Old Firm rivals Celtic at Hampden Park in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup at the weekend.
Although the Gers headed into the tie on Sunday afternoon with confidence, Graeme Murty’s side suffered a convincing 4-0 defeat.
The performance of the Gers was hugely disappointing, as the players failed to step up for such a big occasion.
Former Rangers duo Michael Ball and Lee McCulloch have taken to social networking set Twitter to give their reaction to the defeat for the Ibrox club against Brendan Rodgers’s side on Sunday afternoon.
While 38-year-old former left-back Ball won the Scottish league title with Rangers in 2005, 39-year-old ex-Gers star clinched the championship with the Ibrox club three times during his spell at the Glasgow giants from 2007 until 2015.
Never a good day when you get beat in a semi-final.— Michael Ball (@bally03) April 15, 2018
You can lack quality and ability that can be forgiven. But lack of pride, passion & effort is totally unforgivable. #Ready
There’s been an acceptance of mediocre performances for far too long now! No passion, fight, desire or aggression on or off the pitch. No leaders and no answers for the fans who turn up week in week out and sing their hearts out. Unacceptable!— Lee McCulloch (@LeeHMcCulloch) April 15, 2018
