Steven Gerrard: We can’t allow ourselves to think the Premiership title race is over

0

STEVEN GERRARD won’t allow Rangers to think the job is done in the Premiership despite moving another step closer to title glory with victory over Dundee United.

Goals from Ianis Hagi, Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Alfredo Morelos earned Gerrard’s side a 4-1 win at Ibrox but the three points came at a cost as Ryan Jack was forced off with a calf injury.

Rangers will assess that knock over the next 24 hours as Gerrard ruled James Tavernier and Kemar Roofe out for at least a couple of weeks following their injuries against Royal Antwerp.

All three key men could now miss Rangers’ crowning moment in the title race as the Light Blues edge closer to their first league flag in a decade.

Gerrard said: “I think it is normal to think, I don’t think there is any harm to think. But the one thing I won’t do is get carried away too soon.

“We very much realise where we are and the opportunity that we have got but the full focus and full attention turns to Thursday night now because we want to go and match last seasons achievement of going to the last 16 in Europe. That is very important to us and then we have got a bit of a gap to Livingston away and we will move on to there.

“We have just got to finish the job off. The games are there for us, the opportunity is there for us but the big reminder to myself, staff, players, supporters and anyone else that is covering us is that we have won nothing yet.

“The main thing that has pleased me at the moment is that the players are really in the zone. I can see the focus, I can see the determination.

“I thought when we were 4-0 up today we could have been better in terms of our standards to see the game out better.

“But that is me being fussy and the way I am and I will continue to try and keep the players on their toes.

“The big reminder today is that it is another positive result, another big step, but we have still got work to do.”
