Gerrard praises Rangers ‘patience’ after 2-0 St Mirren win

Steven Gerrard has praised the patience of his Rangers players after they grabbed a late win against St Mirren this afternoon.

It had been a difficult week for the Glasgow club, having lost the Scottish League Cup semi-final to Aberdeen, before being held to a frustrating 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock in midweek.

It was shaping up to be another frustrating afternoon for Rangers with the scores still level as it approached the final 10 minutes, only for Daniel Candeias and Alfredo Morelos to score late on to grab a 2-0, much to the delight of their manager.

“In the second half, we played with more freedom and more belief,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.

“The conditions helped us do that.

“Teams are going to try and make it difficult for us, get numbers behind the ball without showing much attacking ambition. The onus is on us to break them down. I thought we showed good patience.

“We might have got a bit of luck with the first one, although Daniel Candeias is saying he meant it. I’m not so sure. But we’ll take it.”
