Philippe Clement takes stock of Rangers season in social media message and underlines pride despite Celtic Scottish Cup Final loss

Philippe Clement has underlined the pride he felt of his Rangers stars despite yesterday's Scottish Cup Final defeat to Celtic.

The Belgian was left gutted after Adam Idah's late winner sealed a Double for the Hoops and resigned the Light Blues to yet another derby defeat on cup final day. It was an afternoon lacking in overall quality but of the play, Clement felt Gers had most of it as they attacked their rivals without ever being able to get it over the line.

The manager complained about his side's disallowed goal which he deemed soft as he took a swipe at referee Nick Walsh. But in the aftermath of the action, Clement has shared a social media post for fans to take stock of the campaign and the end of his first season as boss in Glasgow.

He said: "Disappointed because we really wanted to win for our fans but proud of the boys for giving everything. Yesterday’s game also means the end of my first season as a Rangers manager. It’s time for a short period with my family before we start working hard towards next season."

Gers, Football Scotland exclusively revealed, have a number of summer transfer plans and their priority positions vary.
