Gerrard After Rangers Win: I asked For An “A” Game and Got “A Plus”

Rangers defeated Celtic 1-0 on Saturday and in the process Steven Gerrard helped his team finally break a massive 10-game losing streak against Celtic.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Gerrard said “I asked the players to deliver an ‘A’ game – it was an A-plus.”

“To a man we were better than Celtic. We were more aggressive, we created more, we could have won by a bigger margin.”

“We wanted to play on the front foot,’ said Gerrard. “We showed Celtic too much respect in the first Old Firm game this season.”

“If you show good players too much respect they can pass you off the pitch, and they did for 45 minutes. Today we never game them a second.”

“Ryan Kent’s performance, considering he’s been injured was outstanding. Scott Arfield left every single thing in his body out there. Connor Goldson took a jab to play.”

“I can’t praise them any more for going out and carrying out the game plan so well.”

But Gerrard didn’t want to get too carried away, and said “Look, there’s still a lot of improvement and growing needed from us, but we need to take confidence and belief from that performance. That’s the level we’re looking for.”

“It was a fixture we dare not lose, because the gap would have been very damaging.”

“So the result puts us closer to where we want to be – but there’s no getting away from it, we still need to get better.”
