Aberdeen end Steven Gerrard's quest for first Rangers trophy

Rangers had the greater share of possession in the second semi-final of the day and led the corner count but the only statistic that mattered was registered by Aberdeen's Lewis Ferguson, who rose unchecked to meet a corner from Niall McGinn and beat Allan McGregor with 11 minutes remaining.

Gerrard has presided over a mixed start to life in Glasgow, as while his side are top of their Europa League group after three games, they are fifth in the Scottish Premiership after nine.

Gerrard had earlier suggested that players would be replaced if they continued to fail in the final third and Rossiter was pressed for a reaction to his manager's comments.

"I'll answer that", Gerrard declared.

"The results in Europe were good and quite rightly so the supporters were on a high, but it was a reality check for them".

'You have to be blunt.

'The business I am in, it is cut throat, it is brutal. "You shouldn't be here".

Following defeat to Aberdeen, the 38-year-old warned his players that if they failed to step up he would likely look to bring in fresh faces in the transfer window.

"He obviously sees another level there and he has given everybody a warning there that if they got the money, he'll go and buy".

And ahead of tonight's match he has reiterated his point, insisting he will not be afraid to axe players if they decide to go into their shell.

"It's the wrong place". We got ourselves in front, somehow, I don't know how but when we did I expected us to go on from there. At a big club, we expect big players to step up on big occasions and provide big moments.
