Gerrard slams his Rangers players after Dundee draw

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has criticised his players following their 1-1 draw with 10-man Dundee on Sunday.

Despite holding a one-man advantage for 70 minutes following Nathan Ralph’s dismissal, Rangers had to settle for a point at Dundee after Andy Halliday’s free-kick cancelled out former Ranger’s striker Kenny Miller’s opener.

Gerrard’s side missed the opportunity to go level with league leaders Celtic, and the former Liverpool captain was far from happy with his side’s display.

“People knock on the door. People shake their head when they are not in the team. People are disappointed but that’s fine, that’s football,” Gerrard told his post match press conference.

“But when you are given a chance, go and back it up, go and perform. Give me a problem and a headache. It is pretty easy, pretty straightforward for me now. I know the players I can trust and it is a reality check today that we are not good enough to make six changes.

“It should make my job a lot easier moving forward because there will be less knocks at the door because if players are honest with themselves and watch that performance back I don’t think they have a leg to stand on.”
