Rangers coach Steven Gerrard says putting aside temporary setbacks and forging ahead is the only way to go after the team was sent packing from the FA Cup.
While hailing the contribution of Super Eagles ace Joe Aribo and his teammates so far in the season campaign, the former Liverpool and England captain equally expressed disappointment following the team’s knock out from the FA Cup no thanks to a lone goal defeat by Hearts on Saturday
He however urged the players to put the disappointment behind and focus on the future even as they file out against Hamilton Academical in the premier league clash on Wednesday.
“If you want to survive at this level you have to bounce back pretty quickly from setbacks and the weekend was a low, I am not going to deny that,” he enthused.
Aribo was in action for full 90 minutes in the FA cup clash against Hearts which ended in a 1-0 defeat.
The Nigerian and his teammates are hoping to bounce back against Hamilton Academical, to further push them up the log.
Rangers currently occupy the 2nd position on the table with 64 points in 27 matches clear 12 points below table toppers Celtic who are leading with 76 points in 28 matches.
With ten matches to the end of the season Gerrard believes increased fighting spirit will be of immense benefit to Rangers.
