Steven Gerrard Shrugs Off Rangers Title Talk Ahead Of League Opener

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard

Nevertheless, it just wasn't to be for Rangers with Bruce Anderson striking deep into stoppage time to ensure the points were shared at Pittodrie.

Rangers, desperate to end bitter city rivals Celtic's seven-year hold over the title, had taken the lead on the half-hour mark when James Tavernier converted a penalty awarded after Dominic Ball's tug on Josh Windass.

"I think we were hooking up well and then it had to be a different way to go and get a result". "But they have played an extra 30 minutes than us and we've got to use that to our advantage".

The Light Blues were reduced to ten men just after the opening ten minutes of the game when Alfredo Morelos was handed a straight red card for an incident off the ball.

"Aberdeen only had one idea, to lump it in the box, and I'm pleased with the players, I'm delighted and I can't go away from here disappointed with any of them".

Steven Gerrard's first competitive league match in Scottish football and it was a fairly eventful affair.

"I would like to reassure members of the public that we take their safety extremely seriously and sufficient resources will be deployed at future games to tackle anti-social behaviour and violence".

Stade Francais sporting director Heyneke Meyer said: "I'm extremely delighted to welcome Paul to the Stade Francais Paris family". He joins fellow Young Munster clubman Mike Prendergast at the Parisian club after a spell of coaching with the Ireland U-20 side.

"We were magnificent", Gerrard said.

"It wasn't even a lack of spark in the final third - we couldn't even get there because our choice of pass was really disappointing at times".

Much like Gerrard as a player, Rangers fought against the odds and didn't waver from their style of play.

"You want to win every game and I think we did enough to win and I think there was only one team who was going to go on and score the second goal, it was us".

Sportsmail understands Bournemouth's Jack Simpson will become Gerrard's eleventh signing of the season this week, with the 20-year-old left-sided defender poised to sign a season-long loan deal.

McKenna had been at the heart of the sending off of Morelos, who went for an early bath when the 22-year-old Colombian retaliated to the Aberdeen player's barge.

Gerrard added that Rangers would consider an appeal against Morelos's red card, the first of his professional career.
