Rangers defeated Raith Rovers in the Scottish Cup by a score of 3-0 – here’s what the Gers massive had to say on Twitter after the final whistle.
It was a comfortable win for the Light Blues – but not everyone within the fanbase at Rangers was over the moon with the victory.
Not only did they emphasise the lack of quality shown by Raith Rovers, they were also critical of Rangers’ overall performance – insisting that they will need to step up against higher-quality opposition.
Michael Beale also came under mild criticism – his brand of football does not seem to be winning over everyone at the Ibrox Stadium.
A nice easy win as expected 👍
How Sakala and Lundstram stayed on for so long is surprising 😂
Should have had some youngsters on the bench imo

Does Beale really think we can win the leauge with only 3/4 signings so slow and uninspiring

Done everything needed today, lads, well done. Yilmaz, Souttar and Hagi getting minutes. Excellent

3-0 but it didn’t feel like it. Often too slow in the build-up but we should be hammering teams like this. Onto the SF now though…

Raith set up so defensively it was never going to be pretty but we need to move the ball a bit quicker at times and not resort to cross after cross when teams sit deep. Cantwell again showing lots of promising signs

The scoreline cannot be denied – Rangers defeated Raith Rovers by three goals to nil and never really looked to be in any sort of trouble across the game’s duration.
Despite this, several supporters weren’t happy with Michael Beale’s methodical brand of football. They insisted that the Gers were not moving the ball quickly enough and will need to up the tempo against sterner challenges in the future.
Rangers will take on Celtic in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup on April 29. The Gers have yet to beat Ange Postecoglou’s team this season – can they finally overcome their bitterest of rivals in this fixture?
