Rangers’ Steven Gerrard FURIOUS at Hibs incident… however not fan and James Tavernier conflict

RANGERS manager Steven Gerrard wasn’t aware a fan had confronted captain James Tavernier.

Rangers led 1-0 going into the interval but for the second time in a week Hibernian and Easter Road embroiled itself in unwanted controversy.

Tavernier was retrieving the ball for a throw-in before a home fan evaded security and confronted the Rangers skipper.

The fan was escorted away but Rangers dropped more points in the title race when Florian Kamberi equalised with 15 minutes to go.

But when asked about the coming together between his captain and a Hibs fan Gerrard admitted he knew nothing.

“To be really honest I’m not aware of a fan running on. If that is the case that’s for Hibs to deal with and maybe talk to people in charge, but I’m not aware,” he told BT Sport after the game.

The former Liverpool player was instead more concerned with the performance of referee Steven McLean.

He felt there was a clear foul in the lead up to the home side’s equaliser and lamented his inability to spot the decision despite being so close.

He added: “I’m not interested, but I’m interested in one that’s cost us two points tonight.

“The referee is five yards away from it and it’s a blatant foul.

“Ten times out of ten, one hundred out of one hundred. The referee is five yards away.

“Now we talk about VAR, supporting referees and blah blah blah.

“But its impossible to support a referee if he can’t spot a foul five yards away.”

Daniel Candeias had opened the scoring for the visitors in the opening 45.

Following the Hibs leveller Rangers pushed hard for a winner, but Andy Halliday’s late free-kick came crashing off the bar.
