Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has hailed Hibs star Scott Allan after the midfielder cut open the home defence for the visitors' consolation goal at Ibrox.

Allan played a delicious reverse pass to Daryl Horgan who scored to halve the deficit in the first-half before the Light Blues bulldozed them in the second.

Ex-Liverpool superstar Gerrard was playing passes like that for fun during his own playing career for the Reds and England.

And he heaped praise on the pass and goal in general, admitting he'd have been delighted with himself had he produced such a quality assist on the pitch for a teammate.

Speaking to Rangers TV on the whistle, Gerrard said: "You've got to praise their goal.

"I think Scott Allan's through ball is outstanding, one I would've been proud of as a player.

"The finish was terrific as well and that's what Hibs are about.

"They've got Horgan, Allan, Mallan, you give them time and space and they'll hurt you.

"That was a tough time for us out there, the back end of the first-half."
