Ibrox View: Rangers must forget about defeat v Celtic straight away

Sunday was painful. The game was so one-sided and Rangers dominated so much, it’s almost inconceivable that the trophy went the other way.

That’s football, though. The important thing is that the players forget about the result straight away.

That’s where Steven Gerrard can prove again why he’s an elite-level manager.

The League Cup is in the past and on Thursday Rangers have the perfect opportunity to put it behind them.

Young Boys travel to Ibrox on Thursday for the final game in the Europa League group stages.

A draw is enough to secure European football after Christmas, which will be a huge step forward for the team.

Playing Thursday/Sunday puts its own strain on the squad, but we’ve got the depth to cope with it and qualifying for the knockouts is all part of the Gerrard revolution.

Gerrard will want a reaction from his players and there’s no better way to put the disappointment of Sunday behind us.

A solid win would mean we go through as group winners and that’s about as good a statement as we can hope to make at the moment.
