IAN FERGUSON reckons Steven Gerrard needs more players that share his winning mentality if he is to deliver success to Rangers in the future.

The Ibrox boss looks like being left empty-handed for the second time once the Scottish season comes to a close following the Coronavirus crisis.

The mindset of many of Gerrard's players has been repeatedly questioned this term and Light Blues legend Ferguson told the fourladshadadream podcast: “The players that are there have got to realise that the Rangers jersey is a very heavy jersey to wear because of the demands and expectations from the crowd. You have got to be winning.

“That is what players have got to understand. When you come into this club, you have got to be winning.

“You are two games away from a crisis and I am sure they know that now with a lot of the flak that is coming a lot of people’s way at the moment.

“We need people that when they come through that door and wear that jersey, they are going out knowing that they have got to win.

“You are not going to a team, and no disrespect to some of the other teams in the league, but some of them are happy to win two games and get beat in three games and two another two games. We can’t do that at Rangers.

“That is the only thing I would say at the moment. We have not got that balance in the team at the moment where we have got these players that will go out there and run through a brick wall for you. We need players that are going to be doing that and taking Rangers forward.

“When Graeme (Souness) took over, he wanted his players to follow him and I am sure Steven is the same. So he needs to get those players and find the bargains and get us back to winning ways.

“We need to be winning cups at Ibrox, we need to be winning leagues at Ibrox because we have not had anything for the last two years [under Gerrard]."
