Rangers’ season has continued to collapse, with the Glasgow side losing-out on another chance of silverware with defeat to Hearts in the Scottish Cup quarter-final. 

Steven Gerrard admitted the Scottish Cup was Rangers’ best chance to end their long wait for silverware, but those hopes have been quashed.

It was the hosts who made the breakthrough though, with Oliver Bozanic smashing in to take advantage of some poor Ranger’s defending.
