Steven Gerrard has issued an ultimatum to his Rangers players ahead of their Europa League clash against Rapid Vienna.
The Scottish giants are scheduled to host the Austrian side on Thursday and the gaffer wants an improved performance from his side. The Gers slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Livingstone and Gerrard is hoping to bounce back in this game.
Gerrard has made a convincing start to his managerial career and perhaps the 2-2 draw against Villarreal in the first match of the Europa League was his best result till date.
Gerrard said, “Looking at us from the day I walked in to now, we’re at our best when we’re positive and when we believe in ourselves.
“You saw at the weekend, we didn’t show enough quality or belief in the final third and we couldn’t score, we didn’t look like scoring.
“It’s very evident to the players that when they go for it and believe in themselves, they are a much better team.
He went on to add, “I’ve mentioned many times how I want it to look and what I expect of them. Now the players have got to go and deliver on that.
“The players have spoken about it too and given us feedback that they feel better when they’re on the front foot.”
