I am using the following code to delete records, problem is that when autofilter returns blank.. for some reason it is deleting the header row too? and leaves the autofilter on instead of off.  Any ideas of edits that will fix this?

Sub DeleteOldRecordsPostSavedCOGIs()
'PostSavedCOGIs  'Delete records older than 90 days.
    Sheets("PostSavedCOGIs").Select
    Rows("1:1").AutoFilter  'turn filter on
        ActiveSheet.Range("A:U").AutoFilter Field:=21, Criteria1:= _
        "<" & DateAdd("d", -90, Date), Operator:=xlAnd
    
    LastRow = Cells(Cells.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
    LastColumn = Cells(1, Cells.Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    'If the filter returns nothing.
    If Range(Range("A2"), Cells(LastRow, LastColumn)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Rows.Count > 1 Then 'Save the header row if filter is blank.
        Range(Range("A2"), Cells(LastRow, LastColumn)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Delete Shift:=xlUp
    End If
    Rows("1:1").Select
    Range("B1").Activate
    Selection.AutoFilter  'turn filter off
    Range("A2").Select
    
End Sub
