Rangers FC picked up a 1-0 win vs Livingston in the Scottish League Cup and Steven Gerrard believes his team nicked the win in a different way.
Last season, the Gers lost a number of points because they were failed to pick up wins during scruffy games but the manager believes, this trait is a thing of the past.
This season, Rangers have lost only a single match in the league and even in the other competitions, they have fared remarkably well.
After beating Livingston 1-0, Gerrard said: “It wasn’t pretty, but I think my team have found a different way how to win, and I think we have shown this season all kinds of different sides of us.
“But today we had to stand up, compete and be men. I can’t ask for any more in that department – of course, I’d like to see a little bit more quality at times.
“I thought we still had the best chances and we had some opportunities on the break where, if we found that final pass, we could maybe have scored a goal to give us some breathing space.
“But in the main, I am delighted. We came here with a plan to get into the semi-finals, and sometimes it doesn’t really matter how you do it – it is about getting over the line and that is what we have done.
“The reflection is it wasn’t pretty, but job done.
“My job is to prepare the team for all kinds of different challenges, and Livingston are a big, physical team. You saw that again on a few occasions today, and teams with a soft-centre would fold and wouldn’t stand up to it.
“Livingston are getting more rewards than we gave them tonight and they didn’t really have a sniff.
“They have had one or two opportunities, but I think you would expect that going away from home against a big, physical opponent.”
Next up, Rangers will take on Aberdeen at home in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.
