Steven Gerrard has said that he is to blame for Glasgow Rangers’ shocking defeat against St. Mirren in the League Cup on Wednesday.
Gerrard at fault
The Gers suffered their first defeat of the campaign in the League Cup quarter-final, with St. Mirren managing a shock 3-2 victory over the Ibrox outfit.
After the match, Gerrard was quick to take responsibility for the loss. He said:
“I’ll take this for the players.
“What they have given me this season has been outstanding. As a group we’ve enjoyed praise, so we’re going to have to take what comes our way, which will be the complete flip of that. We deserve that.
“We’ve dominated large parts of the game in terms of possession. We haven’t built on the first goal and we’ve concede three sloppy goals.”
Quickly move on
There is no doubt that this is a disappointing defeat. The Gers will have been expecting to win this match given they had not been beaten in their previous 27 matches this term. It also means they now have one less opportunity to win a trophy this campaign.
Was Gerrard to blame against St. Mirren?
However, it is important that Gerrard and his players move on from this as quickly as possible. They have been fantastic this season, and the Premiership is arguably the most important title they can pick up as they look to stop Celtic claiming 10 in a row. With Motherwell next up, it is important they put this set-back behind them.
