Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has admitted that the 4-1 scoreline flattered his team as they picked up their first away win of the season against Hamilton on Sunday.
Rangers had not picked up three points on the road in the Scottish Premiership since all the way back in February but got off to a great start when on-loan Liverpool winger Ryan Kent put them ahead after just 10 minutes.
The scoreline stayed at 1-0 until the 80th minute, before Steven Boyd scored an absolute worldie for the hosts to bring the scores level. That goal seemed to prompt a reaction from Gerrard’s men, who scored three goals in the last 10 minutes, with two coming from the penalty spot, to run out 4-1 winners.
Speaking after the game, Gerrard said he was delighted with the win, although didn’t think that his side deserved to win by such an emphatic margin:
“Very happy with the three points,” Gerrard told Sky Sports. “I did not think we played well today at all and 4-1 flattered us a bit. We were not really at it today.
“But all the talk before the game was of how we can’t win away from home, so we will take the three points and move on.
“We are on the back of two really good performances and in your head, you are looking for something close to that. But the pitch and the environments become a leveller.
“But maybe I am wanting too much and wanting to see too much on the eye. People only ever remember the result.”
Rangers have now moved up to fifth in the table, five points behind leaders Hearts.
