Steven Gerrard has said that the Scottish Cup is the only realistic trophy that Rangers can win this season.
The Gers are set to take on Kilmarnock in the 5th round replay of the Scottish Cup at Ibrox later today.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has admitted that the Scottish Premiership title race is over and the only realistic chance for the Gers to win a silverware this season is the Scottish Cup. The Bluenoses are currently in the second place in the league table and will take on Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup 5th round replay at Ibrox later today.
Speaking to the media ahead of the match, the Liverpool legend said, “The Scottish Cup has been a competition, even from the beginning of the season, that we’ve looked at. We’ve wanted to do well in the cup competitions and, in the last one, we got to the semi finals. We were very disappointed with the outcome [a 1-0 Betfred Cup defeat by Aberdeen].
He added, “As a Rangers player or manager or member of staff, you get judged on silverware. The expectation is huge here. The fans want success yesterday. We do as players and staff but it’s not easy. You have to keep trying to learn and improve and work and fight and have that hunger that will get you it as quickly as possible. That’s the reason why at times I have to be truthful and honest with the players. Or brutal as you call it. Otherwise I wouldn’t be doing my job.”
