Alfredo Morelos: Rangers appeal striker’s yellow card for simulation against Aberdeen

Steven Gerrard shouldered the blame after Rangers were sent crashing out of the Scottish Cup by Aberdeen.

Victory for the Gers will be the only way to keep faint hopes of winning the SPL title alive, and that's assuming they can defeat Kilmarnock, this coming Saturday.

But this time he took responsibility for a defeat that leaves Rangers with little but pride to play for. It is very hard to sit here and find any positivity.

"We've got closer to Celtic in the big games".

'If there's any spotlight or questions that come my way I'll accept it. "A bit gutless, but I admire the audacity", posted a third.

"Those players go out there to represent the players and myself first and foremost but anyone connected with Rangers can't be going away with any positives tonight". I'll take it on the chin, I'm man enough to accept that.


Then we'll see what the summer brings.' Rangers return to league duty against Kilmarnock on Saturday before a trip to Celtic Park after the global break.

"Then we'll see what the summer brings".

Ryan Jack's goal separated the sides last time round.

Speaking after the win, the Aberdeen manager said: "I listened to all the experts, read all the experts over the last two or three days and not one tipped us". Niall McGinn and Connor McLennan scored in each half on a fabulous night for Aberdeen, spoiled only by a booking for Graeme Shinnie which rules the captain out of the semi-final.

Steven Gerrard's side crashed out of the Scottish League Cup to Aberdeen in the semi-finals at Hampden, and Derek McInnes got the better of the Liverpool legend again in the other domestic competition earlier this week. We're just glad to be there - everyone was expecting an Old Firm semi-final, so sorry to disappoint everyone who tipped that. We've had a couple of real disappointments there but we've had some good performances in semi-finals. "I've got shoes older than Dean but he deals with everything, it's great for me to see that".
