Plenty of Rangers fans have been reacting to a tweet from fellow supporter Baz Bowski (@BazCast3k) in which he said that not even Scottish Cup success or a prolonged Europa League run would make up for failing to win the Premiership this season.
I'll be honest. if we lose the league but win the Scottish cup and have a great run in Europa Im still gonna be very disappointed.
The league is the be all and end all,
Just my opinion

Steven Gerrard’s side could theoretically still win three trophies in the coming months but league success appears increasingly unlikely after Wednesday night’s defeat to Kilmarnock saw them fall 10 points behind the league leaders, who are on course for a ninth successive title.
The domestic cup would seem to offer them their best chance of silverware, with the ‘Gers into the quarter-finals of that competition, where they will face the Premiership’s current bottom club Hearts. They also resume their European campaign next Thursday when they face Braga in the Europa League round of 32, where victory would see them at least emulate their last 16 finish in the competition in 2011.
Despite still being in two knockout competitions, these Rangers fans agreed that second place in the Premiership would automatically mark the season as a failure, irrespective of whatever else happens:
Agree the league has and always should be our bread & butter.
Anything else is just a nice bonus.

I totally agree, it’d be nice to pick up a cup but the league is the important one.

I’d trade them all for the league title

Feel the same mate. The league is the pinnacle of any season everything else is a shiny nice to have but not the top honour.

totally agree. Couldnt care less about the others, they are nice luxuries to win…but its all about the league!

It will be another step forward but I won’t be happy until we win the League.
