Rangers FC manager Steven Gerrard was left disappointed following the team's defeat to Aberdeen over the weekend.

Lewis Ferguson scored the only of the match as Aberdeen overcame Rangers 1-0 in the 2018 Scottish League Cup semi-final encounter on Sunday.

Gerrard gave the following reaction to the defeat to Aberdeen, who will face Celtic in the final.

“With disappointment and regret. I thought the performance was okay at times and we managed to get into some good areas of the pitch, but there was a serious lack of quality," Gerrard said on the club website.

“We have to live with that pain and disappointment, and it is tough.

“I probably wouldn’t have played [Alfredo] Morelos against Ayr United – that’s one regret that’s swirling around in my head right now, and I’ll learn from that."

Nigerian striker Umar Sadiq started up front in the absence Colombian marksman Alfredo Morelos.

However, Sadiq, who is on loan at Rangers from Italian Serie A giants AS Roma, is yet to score for the Scottish giants this season.
