Steven Gerrard interrupts question for player to clarify "warning" for Rangers squad

Steven Gerrard watched his Rangers side draw 1-1 with Aberdeen on opening day

After three games, they top their group which also includes Villarreal and Rapid Wien but it is close - with just three points separating top from bottom.

While Gerrard is enjoying success in the Europa League, his side sit fifth in the domestic league, eight points behind leaders Hearts.

Fresh from their semi-final cup defeat against Aberdeen, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has let his players know in stark terms that now they must step up.

These comments were interpreted differently by several journalists but when one asked Jordan Rossiter to clarify what this meant for the players at a press conference, the former Liverpool captain bit back.

"The business I am in, it is cut-throat, it is brutal", said Gerrard.

"[The question] is for me that, not him". Not him. He's been injured for two years.




"At a big club you expect big players to step up on big occasions and provide big moments".

Loan duo Ovie Ejaria and Ryan Kent were promoted to the first team after Gerrard left for LA Galaxy, and were arguably not the subject of his ire after the weekend's defeat.

"I thought our performance in general (against Aberdeen) was pretty strong but there wasn't enough quality in the final third and we got done by a classic sucker punch against the run of play".

"I wanted a reaction tonight, so that is the disappointing and frustrating thing".

"I can't protect them, I have tried but they are men and they have to stand up and take responsibility because it is results like that which put all of us under pressure. What should I have done differently?"
