Steven Gerrard has slammed Rangers’ disappointing performance following their shock defeat to Livingston this afternoon.
It has been a decent start to life as a football manager for former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who had steered his Rangers side to second in the Scottish Premiership, and ahead of their bitter Old Firm rivals, Celtic.
However, the Gers slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat to promoted side Livingston, and with a trip to league leaders Hearts on the horizon next weekend, Gerrard has said he needs to get tough with his players and tell them when they have not performed well enough:
“We could still be playing for a couple of days, I don’t think we’d have scored,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.
“We’ve had praise and we’ve had a lot of credit. Now we have to take the criticism and when we’re not good enough, and I need to tell the players when they’re not good enough.
“Credit to Livingston, they deserved it. We didn’t create enough and the one thing you don’t want to do now as a player is play your way out of the team.”
