  • James Tavernier of Rangers celebrates with teammates after scoring his team's second goal during the UEFA Europa League Group G match between Rangers and SK Rapid Wien at Ibrox Stadium

STEVEN GERRARD reckons his Rangers side have set a new performance standard after tonight's stunning defeat of Rapid Vienna at Ibrox.

The Light Blues came from behind thanks to an Alfredo Morelos double and a James Tavernier penalty to go top of Group G with two games played. Victory over the Russians would push Rangers closer to a place in the last 32, but Gerrard remains cautious. That's the best 90 minutes we've given and we have beaten a very good team.

"That's the level of performance I've been looking for since I came in", said Gerrard.

"The challenge for us now is can we find it more consistently".

"We weren't good enough on Sunday and nobody can argue against that". The performance at Livingston compared to the performance today is night and day.

"It is completely different and it felt different to the players".

'At this level, you don't get as many chances as we maybe create domestically because of the level of the opponents. If we keep dipping back to Livingston, then that is when we will be inconsistent and that's not where we want to get to.

"A lot of teams we play here, with all due respect, we run away with the game and it becomes easy at times".

"Teams hang in there, they stay in there and they make it hard for you". Of course, we had to show that patience but I think our performance and the fans" performance today matched - it was "wow' - that is our best performance so far.

His side fell behind to an opener from Veton Berisha - that Gerrard insisted should have been ruled out by the French match officials - but swiftly levelled through Alfredo Morelos prior to the break. They were aggressive but so were we and we are happy to get the win. It's early days still but it's great to be at the top of the group. But we were quite aggressive defensively and out of possession and the important thing was we got the three points.

'I said before the Villarreal game that we have a belief in the dressing room and a confidence, ' he said. That is what it is about and that is why Ibrox can be so powerful. There was a blatant foul in the build-up to Rapid's goal and it was offside as well. We should have won the game 3-0 and it would have been the ideal night.
