Steven Gerrard was full of praise after watching his Rangers side surpass Walter Smith’s 1992/93 team with a new unbeaten record in Europe
Rangers’ goalless draw with Spartak Moscow in the Europa League on Thursday night was their 11th game without defeat this season and saw them surpass the previous record set by Smith’s squad.
“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 reporters on the club website.
“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 former Liverpool captain did confess though that he is somewhat a little disappointed about Rangers never getting a breakthrough in their 0-0 draw at Ibrox.
Nevertheless, the Glasgow-based team remain top of Group G on five points alongside Villarreal. But Rangers are ahead due to a superior head-to-head record.
