Some people on here need a reality check regarding Gerrard and the team!
We are 5 games into a league campaign and too many are letting the Celtic game define our season.
Cast your mind back a couple of seasons where we were seen as a soft touch home and away and teams weren't afraid to come and have ago.
Now under Gerrard we have that fear factor back and teams are sitting in making it very difficult for us to break them down.
And this is where the team deserve credit this season. Because although they haven't played well at times they've dug in and ground out last minute winner at Killie and eventually broke down a stubborn St Mirren side. They even weathered a difficult 10 minutes spell when Hibs had nothing to lose and could and get back into a game we were totally dominating.
Throw in under Gerrard the first club ever to go through all 4 qualifying rounds to get to the Europa League group stages for 2 seasons running and I would say progress is being made.
The only thing missing is Silverware.
Now what are the alternatives?
Any McInnes fans left?
Any Steve Clarke fans left?
Just remember the current profile of Rangers is because of Gerrard's status in the game and because we are now seen as a Europa League team again.
Previously? Well I don't need to remind anyone of what went before!
So let the team and especially Gerrard rectify the disappointment of the Celtic game. Let's all enjoy the upcoming Europa League games and let's see where the rest of this season takes us.
Sometimes it won't be pretty, but 3 points are all that matters!
In Gerrard We Trust!
Let's Go!

Great post someone who can see the bigger picture.
I for one can remember going to Ibrox in the pre Gerrard years where teams came and were in fact confident of winning .
That has changed now teams come and sit with 10 men behind the ball and leave one up top like the first half yesterday. It is now up to Gerrard and the team to find away to break this down ( which they are ) it will not always be pretty but as long as we win that is all that matters.
On another note Goldson needs to be rested don’t get me wrong the guy is a good defender and is always talking to his team mates throughout the game but his form has taken a dip lately, there big number 9 yesterday won every battle against him before he got sent off, and his long balls out of defence 9 times out of ten either go out the park or straight through to the oppositions goalie.
Anyway everyone should get right behind the team on Thursday as this is where we wanted to be beginning of season the only blip was the old firm.

I agree with above posts to a point but I still think we need players a good left back for one this a problem area on the park Halliday good squad player but sorry not at left back if it’s going to be Barasic then he needs game time, also we need a quality number ten to break these teams down it’s that final ball to open up defences that we lack I’m not going to be greedy but another striker a good old fashioned tall striker just to mix it up I agree with Goldson yesterday his passing was terrible but all in all we are in not to bad a place pity about Kent but when one door closes another opens and I’m glad Barker walked through it I was impressed with him you could see Livi were frightened of him two sometimes three players on him and a great goal so bring on Thursday another night under the floodlights magic.

That post from letsgo is far to positive for some on here.

Terrific post LETSGO 55, we must also live within our means, as for the comments about needing a left back, we are perfectly covered in that position with seasoned pro's who played at the top level, no need to waste money, where we do need cover is a striker. Terrific turnaround in fortunes for our Club since Steven Gerrard arrived, I cannot think of anyone else better at this time, as LTESGO says, let's stop moaning and get right behind this team, because, apart from one game, these boys don't know the meaning of the word defeat.

Well said, Ii have been to every home game this season as a season ticket holder and the celtic game aside I fail to see the extreme negativity towards the team we could easily have been up by three or four at half time yesterday we had them pinned in there own half for massive parts of the first half was it really as bad as some were making out I just didn't see it.
Livingston came with a game plan having already put more points on the board than hearts hibs killie and Aberdeen the teams that are all taken to make up the top five.

We broke them down scored three times and move on no body looks good against teams that sit in with 11 men behind the ball with the only objective being to get a point.

The Steven Gerrard debate its just the silverware that's been missing so far and I really don't think we are that far away either in the previous past few seasons we lose yesterday and we lose against killie there is a confidence there now and a steel. All just my opinion but I really don't think things are that bad.
