Rangers will be relieved to salvage a draw despite a disappointing performance against Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.
Sam Cosgrove fired the Dons into an early lead from the penalty spot after Connor Goldson scythed down Gary Mackay-steven.
After a disappointing opening 45 minutes, Gerrard’s side got themselves back into the game in the opening minutes of the second half.
Ryan Kent’s corner was smashed home by Joe Worrall to level things up and breathe new life into the Gers.
Neither side could really take advantage after that and played out a disappointing but engrossing draw.
They’ll now meet again on March 12th with the winner heading for the last four.
Here we look at three talking points from the clash with Aberdeen:
The inconsistency of referees is beyond a joke
Some of Kevin Clancy’s decisions today were incomprehensible.
The ref lacked any consistency in what was or wasn’t a foul or even a booking.
It’s not the first time it has happened this season – and almost certainly won’t be the last.
While there’s much been said about refs in recent weeks, there’s been little done to actually improve standards.
Something needs to be done or they’ll continue to get big decisions wildly wrong.
Alfredo Morelos is kicked up and down pitched but offered no protection
Everyone knows that Morelos is Rangers’ talisman.
The Colombian has been a vital figure over the last two seasons with a huge number of crucial goals.
But the Colombian needs to given some protection from officials at times.
Defenders kick him up and down the pitch week after week yet the Rangers striker is booked for the slightest thing.
That summed up Rangers’ season so far
After two 5-0 wins then a 4-0 win, that performance completely summed up Rangers’ season so far.
Despite knowing a defeat would realistically end any hopes of a trophy this season, Gerrard’s side looked uninterested for long spells.
The previous three games gave a glimpse to how good this side can be when they are on form but today was a return to the worst side of this team.
Not enough players were willing to try and grab the game by the scruff of the neck and influence things – and it showed, badly.
The Gers now travel to Easter Road on Friday and simply can’t put in another performance like that.
