Celtic moved 10 points clear of Rangers last night.
Neil Lennon's side thumped Hearts 5-0 at Parkhead, but the Gers, who have a game in hand, stuttered once again and lost 2-1 away to Kilmarnock.
In doing so, Rangers, who beat Celtic at Parkhead before the winter break as a big statement of intent, have dropped eight points since the football resumed in Scotland last month.
It's nowhere near good enough and Gerrard admitted as much during his post-match interview with BT Sport.
The Light Blues boss admitted that the Hoops were in the 'driving seat' and that they are simply 'relentless' right now - but he didn't mention them by name.
Instead, Gerrard referred to Celtic as 'other people' during the interview, and here's how fans of the Bhoys reacted on Twitter:

Steven Gerrard: "You've got to look at the form of other people*, that are relentless right now."— Kevin Schofield (@PolhomeEditor) February 12, 2020
*He means Celtic, but the name must have escaped him.

Gerrard should be bitterly disappointed with his Rangers lads.
Less than two months since winning at Parkhead for the first time in nine years, the Ibrox side's title bid is hanging by a thread.
As mentioned, they have a game in hand over Celtic, which offers a glimmer of hope, but on this form there's no guarantee that they won't drop more points between now and then
