Gerrard challenges ‘excellent’ Rangers to find ‘consistency’

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard challenged his side to find more consistency after they beat Livingston 3-0 this afternoon.

Having been beaten in midweek by Kilmarnock, Rangers breezed to victory at the Tony Macaroni Arena, with Ryan Jack opening the scoring on the half-hour mark.

Ryan Kent doubled the Gers lead three minutes after the break before Alfredo Morelos rounded off the scoring 16 minutes from time, although there really could have been more goals, with the visitors having 14 shots.

Speaking after the game, Blues manager Steven Gerrard was full of praise for his side’s performance but wanted them to be more consistent as they pursue the Scottish Premiership title.

“I’m very pleased, I thought we were excellent,” the former Liverpool midfielder told Sky Sports.

“You have to defend very well, match them and earn the right to play. I had confidence we had enough quality to score goals, the challenge for the players was to come in and defend.

“We’ll take three goals and I’m very pleased with the clean sheet.

In terms of transfers and the approaching deadline, Gerrard adds: “We are content and satisfied. I’ll be surprised if anything happens. We’ll go with what we’ve got.

“The challenge for us is now finding consistency.”

The win sees Rangers move into second place in the Scottish Premiership, three points behind league leaders and Old Firm rivals, Celtic.
