Rangers have failed to finish in second place in the Scottish Premiership again after rivals Aberdeen won at Celtic Park and the Light Blues drew 5-5 in a dramatic game against Hibernian at Easter Road.
In what was undoubtedly the best game of the entire season in the Scottish top-flight, Rangers were both impressive in attack and woeful in defence, which is actually rather fitting considering how their season as a whole has gone.
Fans were frustrated with the performance and result, but did find one silver lining – the fact they may not have to see Russell Martin in their defensive line anymore.
The player’s loan deal is up now it’s the end of the season and he hasn’t exactly made himself a fan favourite since joining from Norwich City in January after a series of dismal performances.
Supporters are hoping the arrival of Steven Gerrard will see effective signings being made in defence this summer, given it is the weakest area of their team by far.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on what could be Martin’s last game for the club…
Actually more excited for Russell martin to leave than play in Europe

Russell Martin makes Lee McCulloch look like Richard Gough.

We scored 5 more goals than Celtic and we finished 3rd. The Signing Russell Martin is up there with David Murray's first phone call with Craig Whyte

Am glad that is the last time I’ll have to watch Russell Martin.

Only positive I can take from today is that is the last time you will see Russell Martin in a Rangers shirt.
