Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has admitted that he is “struggling” to understand the Gers’ recent woes after falling seven points behind Celtic in the title race.

The Light Blues have a game in hand on their bitter rivals but lost ground after a woeful 0-0 draw with Aberdeen on Saturday.

Gerrard insists it is nothing to do with fitness but concedes he can’t put his finger on what is going wrong with his side since the winter break.

“It’s difficult to my put finger on it. I am struggling to do so right now. We’ve had a look into it and it is not fitness,” Gerrard said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“But this is the first time we have had a shot on our goal since we have come back. Maybe it is more on us.

“We could easily be sitting talking about a 1-0 win, but we haven’t taken our big moments.

“I don’t think you are going to get a lot of moments against Aberdeen, the way they play with their organisation.

“We were aware of that but we still have to take our moments.”

The Gers will have an opportunity to put things right quickly when they face Hibs on Wednesday night in the Premiership.

The title is still within the Gers’ grasp but there is no room for error after losing to Hearts then drawing with Aberdeen.

Anything less than three points on Wednesday could well be the result which effectively kills off any hope of a title party for Rangers come May.
