Rangers' win sent title rivals ominous message after Gerrard's changes
[size=200]Rangers' win sent title rivals ominous message after Gerrard's changes

sbobet asia Glasgow Rangers cruised through to the League Cup semi-final with an emphatic win at Ibrox. Rangers may have been heavy favourites for their League Cup clash with Ayr on Wednesday night, but Steven Gerrard will inevitably be delighted with the way that the Gers cruised through to the last four of the competition by storming to a 4-0 win at Ibrox.

Gerrard made six changes from the side that beat St Johnstone 5-1 in the Scottish Premiership at the weekend. But it did not appear to halt the Gers' momentum in the slightest as a brace from Glenn Middleton as well as goals from Nikola Katic and Alfredo Morelos helped the home team set up a semi-final tie with Aberdeen.

It was always going to be difficult sbobet asia for Rangers to emerge from the contest with much credit given that their opponents are in the division below. But anyone who watched the performance at Ibrox will struggle to argue that Gerrard's men did not send out a very ominous message to their title rivals in the Scottish Premiership.

The Light Blues were barely knocked off their stride despite the likes of Allan McGregor, James Tavernier, Connor Goldson, Lassana Coulibaly sbobet asia and Scott Arfield not starting the contest against the Scottish Championship leaders. Meanwhile, there was also no Ryan Jack, Daniel Candeias and Kyle Lafferty in the squad either. It would not have been too difficult for Gerrard to put out another incredibly strong lineup with the players left over after he picked his team yesterday.

And when you consider that they kept a clean sheet with a back five that included Joe Worrall making just his second appearance since arriving - and his first alongside Katic - and Andy Halliday featuring again at left-back, it is not difficult to see why many Rangers fans are so optimistic about their prospects in all competitions this season.
