Rangers crashed out to Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park on Sunday and Steven Gerrard made his feelings known after the game.
The Light Blues manager was not happy with the way his team performed throughout the match and believed they were right to have lost the game.
Having been beaten in his first semi-final as manager, he then went on to claim that it would not be their last appearance at that stage of any competition, suggesting that he could be prepared to enter the transfer market once again.
“But what I’ll assure everyone is that won’t be our last semi-final. If it means I have to go and buy better quality players for when we get to this stage, that’s what will happen,” he told the Daily Record.
“If the players that we’ve got now don’t improve and start showing the quality we need in the final third, my job is to find the players who will. Otherwise, we are never going to win anything.”
Rangers were poor against Aberdeen on Sunday and dearly missed the likes of Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty on the pitch.
Umar Sadiq, who had been given his chance to make an impression, failed to make most of the opportunity, leaving many concerned with his performance on the day.
Gerrard made a large number of additions in the summer when he took over at Ibrox, however, it appears he could look to do the same in the winter to ensure his team have the killer touch when it matters.
