Steven Gerrard: Rangers haven't always got deserved results at Hibs

Despite having an unbeaten record at Easter Road as Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard feels his team have not always received their just rewards from what he regards as one of the most challenging fixtures on their schedule.

In 2018-19, Gerrard’s first campaign in charge of Rangers, four points were dropped in 0-0 and 1-1 draws away to Hibs. On their only visit to Easter Road last season, Gerrard’s men did enjoy a 3-0 win but experienced fresh frustration when held to a 2-2 draw last September.

“It’s a place where we have always performed really well in my time,” said Gerrard ahead of his Premiership leaders’ latest assignment in Leith on Wednesday night. “We haven’t always got the results our performances there have deserved.

“The first few times we went there, we didn’t take our chances and weren’t ruthless enough in front of goal and only managed to get draws.

“We had a really strong 3-0 win there when we were ruthless in front of goal and defended ever so well.

“The last game there in September was another strong performance in terms of chances created. Scott Arfield had a double chance late on to win it and Ofir Marciano made a fantastic save from Ryan Kent as well.

“But we made individual errors and conceded two sloppy goals. So we know what we need to do, we know what type of performance is needed to get a positive result there.

“It’s about us going there and trying to execute that performance. We are expecting a tough challenge, it’s a team and manager we respect."
