Commons believes this is a common trait of Gerrard's as he continues to "throw them under the bus".

The Sky Sports pundit reckons it's about time Gerrard blamed himself for signing a bunch of "prima donnas who can't handle the heat".

He wrote in his Daily Mail column: "He took responsibility for the defeat at Kilmarnock last week, but only to a degree.

"By questioning the mentality and bottle of his players, he did still effectively throw them under a bus.

"Gerrard is, ultimately, the man who signed them. If he has assembled a group of prima donnas who can't handle the heat, then he's as culpable as anyone else in all of this.

"There's a lack of ideas in this Rangers team. They have become stale and one-dimensional. So, in that sense, a return to the European arena may offer them a chance to rediscover their spark."
