Gerrard slams Rangers players despite 2-1 St Johnstone win

Steven Gerrard has criticised his Rangers side, despite their 2-1 at St Johnstone on Sunday.

Alfredo Morelos scored twice in the second period as Gerrard’s side came from behind to win after trailing at half-time to Matty Kennedy’s first-half strike.

The win kept Rangers in second place in the Scottish Premiership, behind leaders Celtic by a point having played a game more, but Gerrard was far from impressed by his team’s first-half performance.

“The first half wasn’t good enough,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.

“Nobody did the shirt justice, nobody looked like a Rangers player to me.

“I had to have the honest conversation with them at half-time, I had to tell them what all the fans thought of them because you could hear their reaction at the end of the first half.

“My job is to let them know what the fans think and it’s my job to demand more out of them and we got a major reaction in the second half. Every single player to a man stood up to be counted.

“You saw the two sides to us today. The team in the first half was second best, then we were a quality team which looks like it’s capable of being at the top of the table.
