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

With four matches to go in the 2018-2019 Scottish Premier League season, Rangers is in the second spot of the table with 59 points.

The team is eight points behind Celtic, which means is almost impossible to catch-up to the first-position rivals.

And after losing 2-0 against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup Quarterfinals, Rangers can only focus on the league now.

“Sometimes in football, you don’t have to say too much. I think players know and they will be well aware how the supporters will be feeling and how the staff are feeling – and how they are feeling themselves,” manager Steven Gerrard told the team’s website.

“It’s about what you do on the pitch in terms of your reaction and your performance, individually and collectively. The players will know how I’m feeling. They’ll know it pretty clear.”

“We won’t change much in terms of our preparation, how we go about messages and strengths and weaknesses of opposition,” he added.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard admits he has got his one eye on Anfield as the Reds challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title.

“But I think sometimes you end up in situations as a player and as a team where tactics and information have to come second. It’s about you do and what you give in terms of your performance.”

I’m expecting a performance for the supporters on Saturday. It’s got to be about the supporters because that was a tough one for them to take on Tuesday and we understand that,” he commented.

“We believe we can get closer, and that’s got to be the challenge and that’s what we will try and do all the way to the end.”

“Listen, we will never stop fighting and giving what we can to improve our situation, but let’s not look too far ahead as we’ve got a tough challenge against Kilmarnock at the weekend,” he concluded.
