Rangers fans have raged on Twitter after Glasgow-born Sky Sports presenter Jim White shared an image of Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace smiling at the club’s awards night.
Naturally, the picture would not cause much offence, but it follows on from a devastating 2-0 defeat against fierce rivals Celtic at Hampden Park on Sunday.
Veteran Miller started upfront and played the full 90 minutes of the Scottish Cup semi-final, while Wallace missed out on the occasion through injury.
The striker was one of the few Rangers players to leave the field with any credit and he may have been spared from any criticism on Sunday had White not shared an image on his personal Twitter account of himself, Wallace and Miller all smiling alongside the caption “Plenty reasons to be cheerful at the Rangers POY Awards night”

The caption seemed to bring out the most anger from the Rangers fan base on social media with many believing the club to have under performed in the league, as well as Sunday’s defeat.
A number of fans were asking White to point out even one reason to be cheerful about regarding this campaign, while one went as far as to say the players should be hanging their heads in shame.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
I hope they all have a lovely night. NOT!! How anyone associated with rangers is smiling today I'll never know
