Rangers' Steven Gerrard still believes in his players despite League Cup defeat

Rangers' Steven Gerrard still believes in his players despite League Cup defeat

The result comes three days after League Cup semi-final defeat to Aberdeen and the Gers boss says he had some strong words for his squad at the final whistle.

McKenna, 21, was in defence as Derek McInnes' side beat Rangers 1-0 at Hampden to reach the Betfred Cup final.

"We'll do what we do, nothing changes", Gerrard told Rangers TV.

However, Ferguson conceded that if they keep getting beaten in the semi-finals of cup competitions, Rangers will find it hard to convince others that they are a good team. Back at home there is a lot of rivalry between Derby and Nottingham Forest but it is nothing like the Aberdeen against Rangers and Celtic games. "But we defended well as a team". It's a good challenge because they are going well in the league and I know Steve well. We could have used the ball a bit better, I don't think there's any arguments about that, but I thought we hung in and defended brilliantly and showed great desire and character. Fergie's made a massive impact since he joined the club. I picked the players, I picked the game plan, I signed a lot of the players. George Cairns, the head of youth at Hamilton, instils that mentality in them coming through and that's what is serving
Fergie well right now, playing week in and week out.

"It's Aberdeen again, though, and it's a tough game".

And he wants to see evidence that they are hurting and eager to atone when they host second-placed Kilmarnock in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Wednesday night.

"That is not to take anything away from the players who went to Ibrox past year and put in a really gutsy performance and managed to nick a 1-1 draw".

"The ones that are still here from when I came into the club are still very important for me".

After being played through on goal, Umar attempted to round goalkeeper Lewis but went to the ground and was booked for diving in the 83rd minute - a scenario that left fans to fault his abilities.
