Steven Gerrard delighted with Rangers attacking performance

Fri 26 February 2021 | 11:37

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was left dazzled in the wake of seeing his squad tempest their way into the last 16 of the Europa League.

The hosts followed up a week ago's excited first-leg in Flanders to beat

5-2 at Ibrox as they fixed an eccentric 9-5 aggregate victory. 

The two games were an emotional rollercoaster for both sides; however,

concedes there might have been more dramatization if the two sides had taken the missed opportunities. 

In any case, the Liverpool icon isn't griping after his group booked their place in Friday's early afternoon draw. 

Asked how please he was to see his side net multiple times at this level, Gerrard answered:

"That is not to mention the four from the first leg as well and it could have been many more.

"In terms of our attacking play, our style and how it looked, I am sure people will have really enjoyed watching us, more importantly our fans.

"I have certainly enjoyed watching it from the side and the players have enjoyed playing in it.

"Over the course of the two legs we could have scored more than nine and we saw that was where the opposition weakness was.

"We wanted to be very bold and we picked two very aggressive, ambitious teams to go with that and the players deserve all the plaudits that will come their way."
