Kilmarnock travel to Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, and Steve Clarke has previewed the game, as quoted on the club’s website.
It’s less than a month since their last trip to face Gerrard’s men.
That ended in a resounding Rangers victory.
A brilliant four goal salvo from Alfredo Morelos and one from substitute, Andy Halliday, condemned Killie to a 5-0 hammering.
However, El Buffalo and co. were undoubtedly aided by an early red card for Daniel Bachmann.
In general, the teams have been fairly evenly matched this season.
In five meetings against Clarke, Gerrard has won two, drawn two and lost one.
“Rangers will be looking for a reaction, after a really disappointing midweek game for them”, said Clarke, as quoted by Killie’s website.
“We go there prepared for a tough game and I hope we can do ourselves justice.”
In addition, the former Liverpool coach claimed that despite their recent hammering, they will travel with no fear.
“It’s about performance.”
“Over the last couple of league games we have looked like our old selves again. Hard to beat, resolute. We were also creating a few chances. So if we can continue that and get a point or a win, that will be great.”
Contrastingly, nothing but a win will do for Steven Gerrard.
Anything less would permanently extinguish any lingering hopes of a league title. Worse still, the squad would head into an Old Firm clash on the back of three games without a win.
