Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has lavished praise on the Gers support ahead of tomorrow’s first competitive home game since March – and the Ibrox gaffer insists there is “nothing better” than a packed Ibrox.
The Light Blues will play a competitive home game for the first time since losing 3-1 to Bayer Leverkusen in March and Gerrard admits the Gers just have to “get on with things.”
Gerrard’s side welcome St. Mirren tomorrow and will he hoping to brush off Thursday’s defeat to Leverkusen in the second leg of the Europa League clash with a win over the Buddies.
“There is nothing better than a full Ibrox when the fans are behind us,” Gerrard said, as quoted by The National.
“It is what it is and we have to accept the situation in the current climate.
“We just have to get on with things and we want to put in a good performance and get a good result which the fans will be happy with.
“It’s all about building on the Aberdeen result and performance and trying to make it six out of six. That’s the plan.”
While fans won’t be able to attend at Ibrox, the club has allowed supporters to put flags in the Copland Road end as the club tries to add a bit of colour to the proceedings.
The Buddies could prove a tough test for Rangers tomorrow after putting in an impressive performance last weekend to beat Livingston 1-0 through Richard Tait’s header.
Jim Goodwin’s side were well-drilled defensively and barely gave Lyndon Dykes a sniff as they stifled the West Lothian side to snatch the three points.
