With the club 12 points behind rivals Celtic in the Ladbrokes Premiership it leaves just the Europa League as the club’s only avenue to success.

Questions have been raised about Gerrard’s future at Rangers, with the manager admitting himself that he had thinking to do.

However, ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Hamilton, he has given the support a clear message.

“I'm good,” he said. “Ready for the next challenge which is Hamilton tomorrow. The game at the weekend was bitterly disappointing, I have done some real thinking with the people around me and I'm ready to go again.

“Even before Christmas I knew this squad needed help and support, to create and produce a winning team you have to strengthen constantly.

“We are always going to be challenged here. My job is to find solutions that give us long-term success. Right now I have to identify why we go from Braga's performance to 72 hours later not doing justice but that is an exciting challenge for me. I don't fear that challenge

“I self-reflect, what I can and need to do better. I think if you want to survive at this level you have to bounce back. Saturday was a low and I won't deny that. I will always be honest.

“I am all in, I signed up to something here and I knew there would be real setbacks and this is when the club needs me most to stay on, fight and push forward on the progress we have made in a lot of areas whilst learning to ensure the mistakes don't happen again.”

There will likely be further changes to the squad in the summer with Gerrard admitting talks will take place as to how to get the team to where they want to be.

“I thought about where we are and what needs to be done,” he said. “The short-term is to get the players ready for tomorrow and to get to the International break in the best stage. Then in the summer we will sit down with the right people and discuss how we move forward together.”
