Rangers boss Steven Gerrard appeared to take a dig at those supporters who were giving him and his team a hard time with the Gers 2-0 down at home to Braga.

An Ianis Hagi inspired Rangers side would of course bounce back from the two-goal deficit to leave the loyal supporters who waited back to support the team very happy.

But Steven Gerrard couldn’t resist calling out those miserable moaning supporters who gave him and his side undue criticism or who left the stadium altogether at 2-0.

“Well this is what Ibrox deserves and this is what this club deserves,” said Gerrard [Rangers].

“The amount of history and big nights that have been here before it’s our responsibility to try and get as many as we can back.

“At 2-0 there’s a few people leaving, I’m not sure if that’s the weather or the scoreline.

“There’s a bit of negativity behind the bench, but in European football magical nights happen.

“I experienced a lot of them as a player and I hope I experience a lot more but tonight was certainly right up there.”

Rangers came back from two-nil down to secure what was undoubtedly the greatest comeback of Steven Gerrard’s tenure in charge.

His side showed grit, determination and real character to bounce back and win the game and it’s unsurprising the manager called out the moans and groans after the game.

Ibrox can be an unforgiving place to play football at times but there is absolutely nothing to be gained from moaning and groaning and leaving the stadium early.

For those who berate the club’s players – who were going through the most difficult patch of the campaign coming into the match – there’s a feeling of karma attached to this result.

Can you imagine what it’d feel like to throw the toys out the pram at 2-0 to leave the ground and miss out on the greatest Rangers comeback of a generation?
