Steven Gerrard is expecting a tough test when Rangers host Dundee this evening, although he revealed that his side are in high spirits after recording two successive 5-0 wins.
Gerrard was left frustrated 11 days ago when his side were held to a 0-0 draw by St Johnstone to leave them eight points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race.
However, they have responded well by beating Kilmarnock and Hamilton Academical in their last two outings, achieving a 5-0 scoreline on each occasion.
Speaking ahead of tonight’s Ibrox encounter, the Rangers boss said that his side are in high spirits, while also recalling the ‘frustrating’ 1-1 draw with tonight’s opponents back in December at Dens Park.
“It was very frustrating, and to this day, it still doesn’t sit too well with us. We huffed and puffed on the day and we had all the ball but without any success in the final third, and we also scored a legitimate goal on the day,” Gerrard said at his pre-match press conference.
“So it was a very frustrating afternoon for us and obviously, for Dundee, it was a very important point for them. There have been signs of improvement from Dundee over since the return from the winter break, but we will show them the respect they deserve.
“We expect it to be tough, but we will go in tomorrow night, spirits are high after we put in a very good performance and we are going in with confidence following two 5-0 victories and two clean sheets.
“So that is very pleasing to see and we want to keep the same rhythm and try and build on that.”
