Cantwell and Silva warned 'you don't get it' as burning Rangers anger goes way beyond a title flop

Upset Rangers fans have let rip at their second-best stars as a series of social media celebration posts set punters over the edge.

Fabio Silva and Todd Cantwell are both in the cross hairs of supporters who have had enough of the frivolity – in the wake of missing out on a third consecutive Scottish Premiership title. And Silva – who once cost £35m when Wolves bought him from Porto – was in the firing line as his Instagram was flooded with comments from brassed-off Rangers backers who saw little to cheer in the wake of the 3-3 draw with Hearts.

The mood music at Ibrox is clear, fans want less social media content from their players and more silverware. It comes after Scott Wright found out something similar during the week. The winger – who has one year remaining on his Ibrox deal – took to social media to big up his brace against Dundee. Punters were not enamoured.

And Rangers fans are questioning where their team are heading into a first Scottish Cup Final with Celtic in 22 years. Philippe Clement – who launched an unflinching state of the address on Friday – admits this team have reached the end of their cycle. But do they have a big performance in them against Celtic at Hampden? A Cup double would change the narrative around a team who needs a pick-me-up.

A comment from one fan under Silva's celebratory post in the wake of the draw has been seized upon by Rangers fans who reckon it echoes their sentiments. It stated: "Read the room. You and your pal Cantwell aren't on the same page as the fans or wee McCausland – who understands it."

Others remarked posing for the cameras will never do. Rangers are heading for a summer of transformation and Ibrox followers have made clear what they demand moving forward.
