Gerrard laments Rangers inability to ‘kill the game’ against Hibs

Steven Gerrard has voiced his frustrations after seeing Rangers drop two vital points with a 1-1 draw with Hibernian on Boxing Day.

Darren McGregor’s late equaliser secured a point for Hibs after Alfredo Morelos’ opener at Ibrox, and Gerrard was left disappointed with his side’s inability to kill off the game.

“We’ve obviously led for the majority of the game and I think we shot ourselves in the foot by not killing the game off,” Gerrard told reporters after the game.

“I think we had chances to go and get the second but Hibs produced that one moment of quality to really catch us out and take two points away from us.

“It’s not a frustration with that as sometimes you have to hold your hand up to quality and I thought the delivery on the goal was good.

“We’ll certainly analyse where we’ve gone wrong on that but I don’t think that’s the reason why we’ve not won the game today.

“It’s more about us not having the killer instinct to go and finish this game off.”

Rangers next face Celtic in the second Old Firm game of the season on Saturday lunchtime, knowing a win will put them level with the league leaders at the top of the table.
