Gerrard ‘very proud’ as his Rangers side set new European record

Steven Gerrard has said he is ‘very proud’ of his Rangers players as they set a new European record in their 0-0 draw with Spartak Moscow last night.

Rangers‘ draw against the Russian outfit set a new club record of 11 games unbeaten in a single European campaign, and speaking after the game, the former Liverpool midfielder and current Gers boss Gerrard has praised his side’s progression.

“I feel very proud of the team in general and to find out yesterday that if we avoided defeat we created a bit of history, that is always a bonus as far as I am concerned,” Gerrard told his post-match press conference.

“It is a nice thing for people to talk about but our focus now shifts swiftly to Aberdeen at the weekend, which is a huge game.

“The players certainly deserve praise having come from where they were 12 months ago, losing against a team from Luxembourg. We have come on leaps and bounds.”

The Scottish giants are joint top of their Europa League group on five points, marginally ahead of Villarreal by virtue of their head-to-head record.
