Gerrard wants to motivate his players

Rangers were kicked out after losing against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Quarterfinals and will only focus now on the league.

“The league is a lot more competitive this year, there are so many good teams. Kilmarnock, Aberdeen are doing really well and they are close up there as well.”

“There are a lot of good teams who can take some points off you if you are not 100 percent there,” he added.

“I don’t think it was a wake-up call.”

“We always reflect on every single game and always work really hard to put ourselves in the best position for every game,” he commented.

“On the day we didn’t perform well enough, it’s as easy as that.”
