Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has one more game to guide his side through before the international break – and it might be the ideal opportunity for the Ibrox giants to get out of their recent slump.

The Gers face Kilmarnock this weekend as they try to end their recent run of three games without a win and keep up the pressure on Celtic.

Recent games have really shown how flat Gerrard’s side can be at times and there’s been a real lack of creativity going forward.

With the chance to spend some time on the training ground and try out some different ideas, there’s a chance to come back after the break and hit form in the final run of games.

Although a handful of first-team players will be away on international duty, the bulk of the squad will still be around so there’s an opportunity to work on things.

 

After having a busy schedule since the winter break, Gerrard will also get the chance to allow some players to recover and get over any aches and strains.

The first game after the internationals will be a trip to Celtic Park so there will be plenty of pressure on Rangers.

With a fortnight to work with his squad, there will be no excuses for another performance like the one on Tuesday night.
