Won't Tell You My Targets - Steven Gerrard Coy On January Transfer Window

Adjust Comment Print

Fresh from their semi-final cup defeat against Aberdeen, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has let his players know in stark terms that now they must step up.

The interviewer said: 'Jordan as a player, to hear your manager say "If the players we have right now don't improve and start producing quality in the final third, my job is to find players that will do it", what effect does that have as a player, is it a motivational thing?'

The Light Blues went down 1-0 to Derek McInnes' side as they missed out on a chance to go head-to-head with Celtic for the first silverware of the campaign in the Betfred Cup final.

The former England under-20 global is unlikely to see much game time if he goes back to Liverpool, with a number of forwards ahead of him in Jurgen Klopp's squad, so for the good of his career remaining at Ibrox, where he would feature much more regularly, may well be the better option.

We've not had an Old Firm final for a good few years so it would have been incredible to be involved in that.

The Red Sox did more than just talk it. "With that special group of guys out there, to celebrate with them, that was awesome". Another year, another World Series celebration at Dodgers Stadium by a team that wasn't the Dodgers.

"Whether we beat them or not at their place is irrelevant, it's a different game and they are coming in with confidence, so it will be a really good test for us".

"I'm looking forward to seeing the three of them compete as managers in the Premier League, I really am and one day that will happen".

Worrall said: "It was a kick in the teeth".

"But I think our lads are lucky because this game comes around pretty quickly". We've not played our best and they have scored a set piece.

Although Gerrard fired a warning to his players, he did not deem the criticism fair on Rossiter who has not had enough minutes on the pitch to prove his worth as of yet. But Gerrard must rue his team's use of the ball in the final, telling moment, where every Rangers pass or shot seemed routinely woeful.
