“It’s the lowest I’ve felt since I came into the job” Rangers boss Steven Gerrard after Scottish Cup exit

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has expressed huge disappointment after his side were beaten 1-0 by Hearts on Saturday, thus getting knocked out of the Scottish Cup.

The former Liverpool captain considers this latest loss as his lowest point since he took the Ibrox job about two years ago.

He was quoted saying by the Daily Mirror:

“I’m very disappointed. It’s the lowest I’ve felt since I came into the job by a long way.

“The performance today was nowhere near good enough.

“On Wednesday night I was the proudest man in Europe because my players were outstanding.

“Everything we’ve worked on for two years, I could see it on the sidelines. I was proud as punch, it was incredible.

“But today for 90 minutes, I didn’t recognise anything. So I’m feeling really low.

“Two seasons without a trophy isn’t good enough. It’s not what I’m about.

“But that’s where it comes down on my shoulders.

“I need to think now. The plan was to have a day off on Sunday. But I need to think hard about where we are. I’ll do some serious thinking in the next 24 to 48 hours.”

The Gers were toothless upfront with Gerrard leaving Alfredo Morelos out of the matchday squad for disciplinary reasons.

Both sides failed to score in the first half but Oliver Bozanic broke the deadlock in the 58th minute to give his side an important victory at the Tynecastle Park.

Daniel Stendel’s side are currently at the bottom of the Premiership table, but Hearts are expected to improve after this massive victory.
