Former Rangers captain and assistant manager David Weir thinks the Gers will be facing a “crisis” if they fail to beat Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup.
The Gers travel to Pittodrie this weekend in the quarter-finals of the cup and Weir insists the Gers can’t afford to lose.
“At Rangers, the next game is always the most important,”
“Win the next game and the picture changes.
“If Rangers win at Aberdeen, the picture is rosier, if they lose, it is crisis and I’m sure Steven understands that.
“It can be season-defining, if Rangers win this game and get a trophy in the cabinet it can help build momentum going forward.”
The Gers last lifted the Scottish Cup in 2009 when Nacho Novo scored the only goal against Falkirk.
Gerrard’s side were recently at Pittodrie on league duty – running out 4-2 winners – and will be hoping for a similar result.
Before that though, there’s the visit of Dundee to Ibrox on Wednesday for Gerrard’s side to take care of.
With Celtic right points ahead in the league, the Gers can’t afford to drop any points to Jim McIntyre’s side.
