Gerrard Refuses to Criticise Players & Promises Rangers Will Come Back Stronger After Euro Exit

Steven Gerrard has refused to criticise his Rangers players following their Europa League exit tonight, and promised his side will comeback stronger in next season’s competition.

The Ibrox club were on the brink of making it to the knockout stages of the competition going into tonight’s final group match, but needed to win away to Rapid Vienna.

After a tense game in Austria, the tie was eventually decided by a Dejan Ljubicic goal in the 84th minute, after Rangers had gone so close to taking the lead earlier in the contest.

In the end, Vienna and Spanish cracks Villarreal progress, but Gerrard isn’t lambasting his players – at least not in public, anyway:

Given the promising start they made to life back in the Europa League, should Rangers have qualified for the knockout stages?

And how much responsibility should Gerrard take for the missed opportunity?
