Gerrard calls for 'heroes and warriors' as Rangers chase Europa League progress

The Light Blues emerged victorious, courtesy of Conor Goldson's goal that came just before half-time, and the final hurdle that stands between them and qualifying for the Europa League group stage is the away leg scheduled to happen next Thursday in Russian Federation.

Connor Goldson's first-half goal means Gerrard's men will take a slender lead into the play-off second leg after their opponents sat deep in a defensive game-plan last night.

'Is it enough? I'd like a bigger advantage, of course I would, ' he said. Listen, we've got another tough game next week.

"But, to be fair to Ufa, they were quite organised, they hung in there and we just didn't get the breaks we needed".

'We understand and respect the opposition and we need a performance full of heroes and warriors next week. Again, we look very solid defensively and I thought we controlled a lot of the game and played a lot of the game in their half. "We have proved we can go and be a really organised team in Europe on the road and the lads have to go and deliver a big performance for us".

Kim continued, "I've lost 20 pounds and I'm really proud of that". "I've kind of been trained to just eat a lot healthier than I used to".

"But, I am satisfied and we go into next week with confidence". Five minutes before the interval the pattern changed, to Rangers' profit, when Kent went outside Jemal Tabidze to force a corner kick which Alfredo Morelos met with a header that was blocked, but not held, by Alexander Belenov.

Substitute Kyle Lafferty was back in blue a day after completing his Rangers return from Hearts but he could not cap off a dream second debut with a goal.

Gerrard told RangersTV: "I was disappointed in our first-half showing". The second half was closer to what I want.

The England legend has acknowledged that his side had put themselves in a strong position, but the 38-year-old has revealed that he had been left unhappy with the first-half performance at Ibrox. The striker was named at the start of his second spell at Ibrox, but on the bench, as was Lee Wallace, who had not featured in a squad for 11 months, first because of injury plus a falling out with last season's caretaker manager, Graeme Murty, which led to the player's suspension.

"We seemed to lack concentration, which was a problem for us, and we lacked pride in terms of defending - I think that's pretty clear", he added.
