Gerrard insists margin of victory flattered his team

first_imgRangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard insists the three-goal margin of his team’s victory over Hamilton flattered their performance.Gerrard insists he won’t be fooled by the 4-1 win over victory over Martin Canning’s side whilst making it clear that his team must improve on Sunday’s performance if they’re to compete for the Scottish Premiership title.However, the former Liverpool youth team coach hopes that finally winning away from home in the league will at least remove that monkey from their backs. “Performance-wise, we weren’t at it today,” said Gerrard, according to The ScotsMan.“We weren’t great but I’m pleased with the three points and the result because all the talk before the game was about our away record and how we hadn’t had a win for eight months. The points were the most important thing for me but I wasn’t pleased with our display, to be honest.”The Gers almost missed out on all three points ten minutes from time when Steven Boyd’s sensational equaliser cancelled out Ryan Kent’s opener.Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.However, two late penalties by captain, James Tavernier and a late winner from striker, Alfredo Morelos goal sealed the win.When it was suggested that his players had shown enough desire to respond to Hamilton’s goal, Gerrard replied:“Is that the word you’d use? I think we were actually frightened when they equalised – that basically gave us the rocket we needed because, at 1-0 up, we were too casual and I didn’t feel comfortable on the side-lines.”“I always felt that they were going to have one opportunity or one decision that could have proved costly in terms of that win slipping from our grasp. But their goal scared us a bit and that sparked us into life. We then went on to win comfortably but 4-1 flattered us.”last_img
