Steven Gerrard confident despite Rangers ‘underdog’ status in Europa League

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard thinks his squad’s improved depth can enable them to defeat their»underdog» status to advance from your Europa League group stage.
Following a strong start to the group stage of the competition last year, Rangers came up agonisingly short, missing out on the last matchday having taken just a single point from their final 3 games.
With Gerrard having had a second summer at Ibrox to form his group, » the Liverpool captain is confident his side could compete, even though facing a draw alongside Young Boys, Porto, along with Feyenoord, who they sponsor on Thursday.
«We gave it a wonderful attempt last year but unfortunately we fell short in the last game,» Gerrard said. «There were times towards the close of the group where we needed to pick teams that were possibly under strength, maybe the squad wasn’t strong enough to cope both domestically and in Europe to get out of the group.
«I have more confidence and belief in this set of players since I believe we have added quality to it — we’ve got a little more strength in depth.
«Having said that I do feel this group is likely a bit more difficult than last year so the struggle is harder, but it is certainly one we would like to take on. We do not fear anyone in the category. We are the underdogs and we are going to go outside and give it our very best shot.»
Later he suffered a hamstring injury during Saturday’s win over Livingston rangers will be without summer-signing Ryan Kent for the trip of Feyernoord, but Gerrard did possess a positive update on the advancement of the winger.
«He is improving. He’s now pain-free walking around,» Gerrard said.
«I still think he will be a couple of weeks away.
«He’s a hamstring problem. They’re obviously ones. They’re accidents that you can’t actually rush. So we will be patient and have him ready to come back, but he is improving.»
