RYAN JACK insists the Ibrox squad won't shirk from the challenge of rediscovering their form to keep alive Rangers' silverware ambitions.

Steven Gerrard's side have fallen ten points adrift of Celtic after losing to Hearts and Kilmarnock either side of their draw with Aberdeen.

The Gers have toiled since returning from the winter break but have to pick themselves up sooner rather than later as they prepare for a crucial run of games across three competitions.

Rangers face Livingston at Ibrox this afternoon and Jack said: “Of course there is a frustration and a disappointment. Since day one of pre-season we’ve put the work in only to now get a few bad results and kinda let that go.

"We have to get back to where we were and what we have built ourselves on, what we focused on from day one of pre–season and how we carried ourselves to Christmas. There is no doubt that’s our aim, to get back to that standard.

“As players we’ve always got to be open to discussing things together and being open and honest with each other.

"At a club like this you get pats on the back from thousands when things go well but when things aren’t going well it’s no time to hide and shirk away.

"It’s important that we step up and we have to step up and get a good result.”
