Steven Gerrard praises duo for their outstanding performances


Despite the 0-0 draw away to Kilmarnock in the fifth round of the Scottish Cup, Steven Gerrard was incredibly pleased with the result.

Kilmarnock failed to record a single shot on target in front of their home supporters as they could not get past the Rangers defence.

After the match, Gerrard was quick to point to a pair of players for their outstanding performances.

“Scott Arfield is like the walking wounded. He’s got a couple of dead legs and some tightness.

“Most players wouldn’t have pulled through or me today but Scotty and Connor Goldson, in particular, dug deep.

“Some of them are giving me more than I should be asking for and I’m really pleased about that.”

The replay will take place on 20 February.
