Gerrard unhappy with ‘lethargic’ Rangers despite 4-0 St Mirren win

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has once again shown himself to be a hard man to please, after he bemoaned his sides ‘lethargic,’ display during their 4-0 win over St. Mirren at Ibrox on Saturday.

In something of a bizarre game Rangers first three goals all came from the penalty spot via James Tavernier (2) and Jermaine Defoe.

On loan Liverpool winger Ryan Kent then sealed the win with a late strike, but not for the first time this season Gerrard let his side know afterward that he was not entirely pleased with their performance levels.

“I’m disappointed with the first-half performance. I thought we were a little bit off it.’’ Gerrard told BBC Sport.

“I thought we looked a little bit lethargic and forgot to do the basics that are required at football matches at a big club, which is to run hard, be aggressive, make tackles, do the ugly bits.”

Celtic’s 2-0 win away to St Johnstone, means Rangers remain six points behind their arch rivals in the race for the Scottish Premiership title.
