Rangers still not on fire despite Cup progress

Former Rangers star Craig Moore believes Steven Gerrard’s side are still trying to find their rhythm despite making it to the Scottish League Cup semi-finals.

Gerrard’s side came close to national cup victory this season, beating Livingston 2-0 at Ibrox in the Scottish League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Rangers are also top of the Scottish Premiership table, but complaints about their lack of fluidity compared to last season have not gone away despite some positive results.

Qualifying for the final four in a cup competition is a positive for the Rangers early in the season, but Moore stressed that there is still something missing from their game at this point.

He feels the Rangers still look a bit lost in the final third, which even Gerrard has admitted has been a problem this season.

Moore said on the Go Radio Football Show: “It was a nice result for the Rangers.

“But still not on absolute fire if I’m being honest. I still don’t create a lot of opportunities.

“And the last bit, I’ve heard Steven Gerrard say so many times, can still be better, but all you can do is move on to the next round.”

Rangers will be in action in the league on Saturday when they travel to Dens Park to take on Dundee.
