Rangers News: Steven Gerrard and Andy Halliday spoke ahead of the Scottish Cup game against Kilmarnock.
The Rangers manager started the press conference by providing a major update on Alfredo Morelos as the Colombian forward would be available for the game.
The striker was handed a three-match ban following his altercation with an Aberdeen player.
The manager said he is still uncertain about Ryan Jack but the former Liverpool star praised Jack for his fighting spirit.
🎙️SG: I’d play Jack if he wasn’t 100% but I wouldn’t risk his body, if he says he isn’t perfect but I can pull through I would probably go with him as he is a winner, a fighter and one I trust out there.— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) February 19, 2019
The Gers manager later shared his thoughts on Saturday’s draw against St. Johnstone. He said the players regretted the result and they were well aware of their performances which weren’t enough for the day.
When asked about tomorrow’s opponent, Gerrard replied that Steve Clarke would always come up with an organized squad and the Gers have to focus on their game.
He further commented on the last training season prior to St.Johnstone’s game as their players weren’t seen with the right mentality. He added it is his job to identify the problems within the rosters.
Gerrard provided an update about Dorran as he is uncertain about the extent of the injury.
🎙️SG: Dorrans had a setback a couple of weeks ago after doing really well, we hope it won’t be too long. He will go through a process building up to playing with the team. It’s very difficult at the moment to give a time. It’s very frustrating for us and for him.— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) February 19, 2019
