Rangers round-up: Liverpool relationship remains, Gerrard slams attack and Kamara wanted
Liverpool relationship still strong
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard insists that the club’s relationship with Liverpool has not been harmed by Ovie Ejaria’s exit, The Daily Record reports.
Ejaria cut his loan spell at Rangers short and returned to Liverpool last week.
But Gerrard said: “I don’t think there will be a problem getting players on loan from Liverpool in the future.
“That’s because we’ve just sent one player back who’s played 28 times, 11 times in Europe, who wore the No.10 for Glasgow Rangers in front of 51,000 people.”
Gerrard slams attack
Despite watching his team head to the top of the Championship, Gerrard slammed his team’s toothless finishing in yesterday’s 1-0 win over Hamilton Academical.
The Daily Mail reports that Gerrard wants to see more “killer instinct” from his team.
Daniel Candeias scored the only goal of the game and it was enough to earn Rangers the win, but Gerrard was still discontent.
Gerrard, who was without his main striker Alfredo Morelos, said: “We created enough opportunities and got into some really exciting areas of the pitch. But we had zero killer instinct today. That’s a concern.”
Kamara on Rangers’ radar
Rangers and Derby County are set to battle for Dundee midfielder Glen Kamara, according to The Daily Mail.
The 23-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, forcing Dundee’s hand in January.
Gerrard is hoping to beat his former England team-mate Frank Lampard to the signing of Kamara, who has thrived since his move from Arsenal to Dundee.
The Finland international impressed against Rangers in a recent clash between the two sides.
