Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side continued their miserable away record this season with a loss at Livingston yesterday. Indeed, without a league win on the road this season, their 0-1 reversal at the Almondvale Stadium proved Gerrard still has an awful lot of work to do.
Following the result, fans on social media have been pointing fingers. Clearly, the team just didn’t work yesterday, though two men in particular have invoked the ire of those on Twitter.
While both Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos have scored goals this season, Light Blues online have pinpointed a major problem. In many of their eyes, the partnership just doesn’t work and not a huge amount of supporters believe Rangers can win the league with them spearheading the attack.
So, with all that in mind, here’s a closer look at what Rangers fans made of their showing, with the club messing up a chance to put serious pressure on Hearts.
Worst performance under Gerrard, we can’t blame the pitch, it simply wasn’t good enough. Ejaria takes about 10 year to pass the ball, Tav is struggling to dribble with the ball, Lafferty and Morelos can’t play together.
Gerrard learnt a lot from his team today. We must improve

Hopefully today puts an end to Morelos and Lafferty together

Changed his formation again to suit lafferty and morelos and yet again it hasn’t worked, stick to what has been working

Gerrard has to take the blame for that today. Just like fir park, crazy decisions. If you play 4-3-3 you cannot play Lafferty on the left. No holding midfielder also a huge mistake. Experiment in Europe not away in the league. He needs to learn fast and play our strongest team.
