In which case, memories will not be made of a Rangers' success in the Betfred Scottish League Cup, the final of which will be contested by Celtic and Aberdeen on Dec 2 at Hampden Park.

Ferguson said on PLZ Soccer's the Football Show: "They are the two main strikers at Rangers, but again you do build a squad and sign 14 to 15 players".

This was a painful outcome for Steven Gerrard and Rangers at Hampden, and one they scarcely deserved.

"There is no hiding it I have had a lot of set-backs in the few years I have been at Rangers but I am in a really good place now, physically and mentally".

"We still created chances but we obviously have to be better when they come along".

"We have analysed it and spoken to individual players and spoke to the team collectively but there's nothing we can do to change the result".

"We played really well but got caught on a sucker-punch of counter attack". Collectively, as a team, and individually, it would have been my first cup final as well and so I am a little bit miffed that we aren't in this one.

The alleged gunman, who is facing 29 charges , said little more than "yes" a few times during the hearing. His lawyers declined and Mr Bowers was remanded into the custody of the sheriff with no bail.

And captain Tavernier was frustrated with a below par performance in the final third as Lewis Ferguson headed home the victor with just 11 minutes remaining to send Derek McInnes' side through to a final with Celtic.

"But I think our lads are lucky because this game comes around pretty quickly".

Worrall said: "It was a kick in the teeth".

"I'm looking forward to seeing what will pan out with these guys", Wise told the Daily Star.

"It's Aberdeen's day, we wish them well".

Although Gerrard fired a warning to his players, he did not deem the criticism fair on Rossiter who has not had enough minutes on the pitch to prove his worth as of yet.

"If roles had been reversed and we were playing against a Rangers then that is the same game plan we would want - to stick 11 behind the ball and then to win it via a set piece like they did".
