Rangers needed to avoid a 6-0 hammering to ensure third place in the Premiership and a place at the Europa League table. Easy, huh?
Well, nerves were jangling after Hibs took a shock 3-0 lead in the game after just 22 minutes, before Rangers decided to wake up.
Rangers came back to level the match 3-3 by the break before steaming on and taking a scarcely believable 5-3 lead in the 68th minute courtesy of a Josh Windass goal.
However, with Hibs fans swarming out of the ground, Rangers started to implode, letting a goal in, seeing Jason Holt get sent off and then letting in an equaliser in injury time.
For neutrals – and for Rangers fans happy to take third place – it was a fantastic game of football. Certainly one of the craziest we’ve seen.
And probably one of the scariest that Steven Gerrard has watched.
He gets set to take over at Ibrox after the Champions League final and will now be very aware of the huge task facing him.
And if he wasn’t, Rangers fans were quick to get on Twitter to remind him, with seemingly every Rangers fan telling him he needs to get a new defence in place for next season.
Here are the best reactions from Rangers fans who all had the same message for Gerrard:
At least mr Gerrard knows were to start full new defence

Correct, here's hoping for a major change in playing staff under Gerrard ????

Being honest no team deserved to lose that game..first thing Gerrard must do is buy a new defence

Steven Gerrard has some job on his hands. Rangers needs a call complete re-build. Especially in defence.

Quite simple Rangers.
Keep Rossiter and Jack fit.
Get two centre halves.
Teach Tavernier that a right back is a DEFENDER not a striker.
And we'll win the league. Scored enough goals to win it this year. Conceded too many. Defence has to be the priority Mr Gerrard.

We might be shite, but I still love Rangers ???? what a game man. Roll on Gerrard, hope he knows how to organise a defence ????

If ever there was a game to sum up our season it was today. Gerrard got some work to do with that defence. Shambles at the back. Decent going forward.

The equaliser was coming. We lost that game because 1) we didn’t take enough chances presented to us in front of goal and 2) because we cannot defend. I’d personally get a whole new defence in if I was Steven Gerrard.

Easily without a doubt our worst defence in our top flight history. Steven Gerrard's main priority should be to sort that right out
