Rangers News: Steven Gerrard of Rangers insists Scottish Cup glory is their final ray of hope this season.
The Light Blues were held to two goalless draws in the last two games, and Gerrard has had time to think over the results.
Moreover, the absence of Alfredo Morelos and Allan McGregor following violent conduct has added extra pressure to the former Liverpool star.
Ahead of their game against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup fifth round replay, the manager opened up about the title hopes (h/t Scotsman)
“The Scottish Cup has been a competition, even from the beginning of the season that we’ve looked at.”
“We’ve wanted to do well in the cup competitions and, in the last one, we got to the semi-finals. We were very disappointed with the outcome.”
The Gers have failed to lift the Premiership title for seven consecutive seasons and have seen their rivals Celtic dominate. (h/t Scotsman)
“I can’t control people’s opinions at the end of the season and what people say,” he said. “All I can control is my players and what we are trying to do and keep trying to take it forward to give us a better chance of success.”
He added that the expectation level at Ibrox is far too high.
Injuries taking a toll on Rangers’ season
Gerrard also lent his support to the managing director following his comments on the SFA’s disciplinary procedures.
In wake of the stalemate against St.Johnstone, Light Blues manager commented that his side never looked good and they weren’t the same they used to be in the previous games.
He also provided major injury updates on the players Ryan Jack and Graham Dorrans.
