The Rangers manager spoke to the media this afternoon ahead of his side’s clash with Aberdeen tomorrow night.
And he responded to Clarke, who yesterday sparked headlines for his call to the SFA to punish Defoe.
According to the Killie boss, there was a witch hunt against Jordan Jones earlier in the season when he dived for a penalty against Dundee.
Jones ended up with a retrospective two-game ban for the dive – something Clarke agrees with.
But he also wants consistency and believes Defoe should be banned for the dive, which won Rangers a penalty in the victory.
Gerrard has now responded to Clarke’s call and has shared his disappointment at the Kilmarnock manager:
So far, the SFA Compliance Officer has made no public statement about Defoe or the possibility of a punishment.
But it is still early in the week and there is plenty of time for a change to that situation.
Rangers are set to face Kilmarnock on Saturday at Rugby Park – and that would most likely be the first game if Defoe was to be banned like Jones was earlier in the campaign.
