first_imgAhead of the biggest week of his reign so far, with Rangers set to be tested on three fronts in the quest for silverware, manager Steven Gerrard insists he focus lies solely on the Scottish Premiership game against Hamilton on Sunday.After the game against Hamilton, Gerrard’s men host Spartak Moscow in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday knowing that a win will move them closer to their goal of qualifying from their group.Three days later, a clash against Aberdeen is all that stands between them and a League Cup final.The former Liverpool youth team coach paid Hamilton the respect of refusing to look beyond today’s game, explaining, as quoted by Daily Mail:“While we always try to get a head start on future opponents, I think the wrong thing to do is speak about certain games and get ahead of yourself.”“I didn’t like doing that as a player. I always felt it was best to focus on what was right in front of you, because it’s not a nice feeling when you take your eye off an opponent and it goes wrong.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“I was disappointed with us at Livingston, so I’m expecting a good performance against Hamilton – and that’s the only thing on my mind.” Gerrard cannot provide an explanation as to why his team have struggled at times on the road, but he pointed out: “Our away form wasn’t a problem against Aberdeen in the first game.”Meanwhile, Rangers will have to find a way to get past Aberdeen without the services of strikers Alfredo Morelos and Kyle Lafferty.Morelos is suspended, while Lafferty is ineligible, leaving Gerrard with a selection problem.But he claimed: “I’ve got a plan in mind. I’m not sure whether that will come out in the next couple of fixtures. We’ll have to wait and see.”“But it’s something I’ve had on my mind since I knew it was going to be happening. We’ll see on that one, but yes, it is on my mind.”last_img
