Steven Gerrard pays Rangers midfielder the ultimate compliment

Steven Gerrard pays Rangers midfielder the ultimate compliment

Bruce Anderson's goal gave Aberdeen a 1-1 draw against Steven Gerrard's Rangers.

Despite the controversy surrounding the decision, though, Rangers pushed on and took the lead in the 30th minute when James Tavernier converted from the penalty spot.

"But we showed today that we're a class above Aberdeen".

"I think we were hooking up well and then it had to be a different way to go and get a result".

"Aberdeen only had one idea and it was to lump it into the box, so I'm pleased with my players".

12 minutes in to the first Scottish Premier League fixture of the season, Alfredo Morelos was dismissed for kicking out at Scott McKenna in an off the ball incident witness by the assistant referee.

Gerrard, who was appointed back in May, claimed that refereeing decisions had been going against Rangers for a long time and predicted that his team would suffer at the hands of match officials in future.

'Someone should give me the answers because if there's anyone in his room thinks nothing should have happened after our penalty'.

"I am delighted with Ryan's performance", Gerrard said.

The new Rangers boss was given a taste of what it's like in the dugout on Sunday in his first league game in charge of the Scottish club. "But we'll make sure we get better for that because it looks like some more decisions will go against us as the season goes on. We need to be a bit more streetwise in that moment". "We enjoyed it. My players came out and played like men and we did our talking on the pitch".

"But I thought we were better than Aberdeen with 11 men and better than them with 10".

Do you think Morelos should have been sent off?

Sutton certainly wasn't impressed with Gerrard's comments this week, so he certainly won't be taking any nonsense when Old Firm games roll around this season.

Asked if Rangers would appeal against the Morelos red card, he said: "There are always emotions straight after the game".

McKenna had been at the heart of the sending off of Morelos, who went for an early bath when the 22-year-old Colombian retaliated to the Aberdeen player's barge.
