Steven Gerrard was keen to see his side get back to winning ways, but they turned in a hugely disappointing performance at Ibrox.

 

Rangers, without the suspended Alfredo Morelos, were drab and uninspiring, and could only muster a 0-0 draw against Tommy Wright's side.

In fact, it could have been even worse; Wes Foderingham saved well from Joe Shaughnessy, whilst Blair Alston hit the woodwork for the visitors too.

Fans unsurprisingly haven't taken the draw well at all, as Celtic can move eight points clear with a win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park this afternoon.

That would effectively kill the title race off once and for all, and Gerrard's anger was evident after the final whistle as his players blew another chance to pile pressure on the Bhoys.

After the game, winger Candeias spoke to The Scottish Sun, and offered an apologetic message to supporters, admitting that Rangers simply don't deserve to win the title with performances like that.

“I’m sorry for that performance,” said Candeias. “The whole team is disappointed with the result and display. We wanted three points, but it was a bad day for us. We have to look at ourselves and the mistakes we made.”

“If you play like we did, you don’t deserve to win the league. I had a chance to score in the second half, but when the team isn’t playing well you have mistakes. We felt pressure as the game wore on. We were nervous because we wanted to win, but it’s passed now,” he added.
