Steven Gerrard has warned his faltering Rangers stars that they’re playing for their futures at Ibrox, as reported by The Scottish Sun.
The games are coming thick and fast at the moment and although it still feels like we are dealing with the fallout of Sunday’s defeat to Celtic, Gerrard’s squad are busy preparing for a tough test at home to Hearts this evening.
The challenge for the title is all but over, but the manager has warned his players they cannot become complacent as they are all fighting for their futures at the club.
As quoted by The Scottish Sun, the Gers boss said:
They’re playing for a club and a set of supporters where the demand is that you can’t let it fizzle out. I’d be very disappointed in them individually and collectively if that was the case.
The reality is, to be brutally honest, players are playing for their futures now in the remaining seven games of the season.
I need players to show who is with me, who fancies continuing this journey. I saw a different reaction in the dressing room after the Old Firm game. I saw in the players that the majority of them fancy it.
I want to see that till the end of the season.
Fans will be looking for a reaction on the pitch tonight with our current run of form being particularly dreadful.
Forget the Celtic defeat, we didn’t even win a single match in the month of March, a streak that stretches back five games.
It’s clearly not good enough and if we don’t produce the performance and result required tonight then the home supporters will let their voices be heard and serious questions will be asked of Gerrard and his team.
