Rangers coach Steven Gerrard admits he expects a big response from his players after their Scottish Cup loss to Aberdeen.

The Gers were beaten 2-0 in midweek and now look set to miss out on silverware this season.

Rangers are eight points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race ahead of their next league game against Kilmarnock.

Gerrard admits the manner of their last defeat disappointed him and he has demanded more this weekend.

‘If they have anything about them, in terms of character and personality, it should be quite straightforward in terms of what they need to give,’ Gerrard said.

‘The players have to really think hard before kick-off and ask: What do the supporters want to see from me? ‘I’m expecting a performance on Saturday, for the supporters, it has to be about the supporters because it was a tough one to take on Tuesday.

‘It will be interesting to see what characters I’ve got – there’s got to be a reaction or we will suffer again.’
