The Rangers manager didn’t like what he saw after a goalless draw against St. Johnstone today in the Scottish Premier League.
Rangers and St. Johnstone drew 0-0 tonight in the Scottish Premier League.
And the Gers boss Steven Gerrard is super angry after his team’s failure to win, saying they won’t win a title by playing like that.
“Right now forget titles and forget closing gaps, the reality is to perform like that across the board in front of 50,000, well there’s your evidence,” he said to Sky Sports.
“You don’t need me to say this, that or the other.”
“If you have a group of lads and they give you that when they’ve got the chance to close the gap to three points when you have Aberdeen, Kilmarnock and the rest breathing down your neck, that’s not what’s required at Rangers when you’ve got the chance to close the gap. You’re miles away from it,” he explained.
“I felt for Jermain (Defoe). Balls were coming into him in the air, his chest, they are bobbling in.”
“There was no service. I never saw a slide pass, a decent cross, a decent combination. Anything I’d seen in previous days,” he commented.
“The cop-out would be to say there was no Morelos, no Arfield, no Jack, but I believe we picked a team with the quality to beat St Johnstone if we play at an acceptable level. But it wasn’t acceptable.”
“We can’t be relying on decisions, we need to be better as a team and perform so we aren’t always talking about officials,” he added.
“We need to look at ourselves and admit it wasn’t good enough.”
