Steven Gerrard to look for new signings if Rangers players don’t improve

Steven Gerrard to look for new signings if Rangers players don’t improve

Rangers have once again been linked with a move for former Ibrox favourite Steven Davis.

After losing 1-0 to Aberdeen in the Scottish League Cup on Sunday, Gerrard warned he would target "better quality" players if his current crop don't step up in these situations.

JORDAN ROSSITER is confident Rangers will bounce back from their Hampden heartache tonight.

While Rossiter was unused substitute at Hampden Park, the 21-year-old midfielder faced some tough questioning at a club press conference ahead of the side's Scottish Premiership clash with Kilmarnock.

One question was aimed at Rossiter, who was asked if he considered Gerrard's remarks a source of motivation, but Rossiter's response was interrupted before he could get a sentence out. It's for me, that.

"That's the way it is, we're at a big club and big clubs requires big players who step it up in big moments on big occasions".

"We couldn't create nine, 10 or 11 chances, but we work hard on set pieces and have a team full of good players who can attack balls, with me and Gaz (Gary Mackay-Steven) able to create those chances".

The legendary ex-Liverpool star believes he will come under increasing pressure unless his players begin to take responsibility on the pitch.

"The players look ready and raring to go for tomorrow night".

"Whether we beat them or not at their place is irrelevant - this is a different game, they are coming in with confidence, so it will be a really good test for us".

Callum McGregor revealed, however, that he was looking forward to a final with Rangers and was disappointed they didn't make it through.

"On watching his 79th-minute right-footed corner finding Ferguson's head and the chaotic, jubilant scenes among the players and Red Army afterwards, McGinn said: "(I was) obviously overjoyed.

'You have to be blunt. You shouldn't be here'.
