Steven Gerrard launches astonishing half-time outburst at Rangers players during St Johnstone victory

Steven Gerrard did not hold back during a half-time outburst which inspired his shot-shy Rangers side to a second-half comeback in Perth.

The boss revealed his fury after his team had allowed Matty Kennedy to fire St Johnstone ahead just before the interval.

Steven Gerrard was not best pleased with his players

In a stunning outburst, he told his misfiring squad they were not fit to wear the Rangers jersey on the basis of their 45-minute display.

And those harsh words did the trick as a double from Alfredo Morelos sealed a 2-1 win which keeps Rangers on the tails of leaders Celtic, who are now just a point in front.

“The first half wasn’t good enough,” he said. “Nobody did the shirt justice, nobody looked like a Rangers player to me.

“I had to have the honest conversation with them at half-time, I had to tell them what all the fans thought of them because you could hear their reaction at the end of the first half.
