Rangers’ boss talks about their key player and his form.
says that he is enjoyingRyan Jack’s
performance but says that they should be careful so he wouldn’t get injured again.
“It’s so important to have Jacko back for many reasons,”
“He’s a fantastic footballer but he also drives standards, the way he trains and goes about things.
“He demands from others, he’s a leader and has been a captain before.
“I was lucky to take on Ryan Jack and the longer we can keep him fit between now and the end of the season, the better because he makes the group stronger.
“I thought his goal epitomized our performance. It came from the corner flag in the left back area.
“I’m not sure how many passes were involved but it was one of my favorite goals of the season so far.
“It would do me and the team no harm if he continues to score important goals but that’s his first of the season.
“The key is to wrap him up and make sure he’s fit and available for as long as possible.”
Gerrard doesn’t want to get carried away by their result and wants to keep his concentration.
“It doesn’t make any sense to get ahead of ourselves or where we are right now.
“Today was about getting maximum points. It’s a bonus the way we did it with a full 90-minute performance.
“At Aberdeen we came off the game at 65 then last week at Motherwell it took us 45 to get going.
“So I’m pleased we had a hunger and urgency about us today. We thoroughly deserved our win and it could have been even more emphatic.
“I don’t get involved in numbers or stats but I’m very proud to have been Rangers manager for 150 games.
“Does there come a time when you have to accept that a title is there for us? No. Only when it’s done, if it gets done.”
