Aberdeen v Rangers: Steven Gerrard reacts to SLC semi-final loss

Steven Gerrard will have been casting his eye for a third striker

Steven Gerrard will have been casting his eye for a third striker

In the aftermath of that game, Gerrard referenced a lack of quality in key areas but assured fans if the club do not have the players now they will find them: "When we do get to this stage again, hopefully, we'll have better players in the final third who can go and take us that step further". "Otherwise we're never going to win anything".

And the former Liverpool coach handed the youngster a chance to lead the Ibrox outfit attack following the absence of Kyle Lafferty and Alfredo Morelos.

The striker could have scored a late equaliser to take the Betfred Cup tie to extra-time, but was booked for diving.

"What I would say to him is if you go around the keeper, stand up and put the ball in the net".

Dons chief executive Duncan Fraser added: "Our supporters have been our number-one priority through our discussions".

We've not had an Old Firm final for a good few years so it would have been incredible to be involved in that.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing the reaction of my players".

No one was injured in the house fire that happened at a house in the Woodward Lake housing development. Although the exact cause has not been determined, fire crews believe the blow torch is to blame.

And they paid the ultimate price for that profligacy as Lewis Ferguson headed home the only goal of the game with 11 minutes remaining.

Hearts now have a five-point cushion at the top of the SPL after a scintillating start to the season has seen them win eight of their opening ten games.

Worrall said: "He (Gerrard) just said we need to focus on the positives we have had over the last couple of weeks and to make sure we make it right on Wednesday".

Celtic and Aberdeen will face off in their second League Cup Final in three seasons and the third cup final Rodgers will face the Donas as opponents.

He said: "We were up against the best Celtic team of a generation that year, they were outstanding".

"Do I think we can beat Celtic over a cup tie?"
