Rangers’ players need to”suck the complaint” they will receive after losing at Kilmarnock, says manager Steven Gerrard.
Jermain Defoe’s introduction goal gave the Ibrox side the lead, however, Joe Worrall’s error talented Eamonn Brophy an equaliser before Jordan Jones struck the winner.
The end result means Rangers fall into third party, three points behind Celtic, having defeated the leaders within their last game.
“The table wont look nice.
“We had a terrible lot of praise weeks ago and rightly but tonight we weren’t at it all around the pitch”

January registering Defoe got his Rangers career away to the perfect beginning, along with Alfredo Morelos hit on a pole with a header.
But Gerrard bemoaned Rangers'”absurd gift ideas” as Worrall conceded possession to Brophy before the leveller along with Jones, who will combine Rangers in the summer, capitalised on a helpless pass in midfield.
“We backed off Jordan and let him on his favoured foot. A player of this ability will punish you by 20 yards,” Gerrard added.
“I believe the players need to know that if you’re playing well, you get yourself facing you can’t get overconfident.
“It’s incredible the way to have so much control and also be playing with confidence and swagger, and then completely lose your way for this a long portion of the match from that very first mistake”
Rangers, who currently trail Kilmarnock by two things, face a visit to Livingston on Sunday before their re arranged Scottish Cup fourth-round tie at Cowdenbeath.
Jones’showed why Rangers signed ‘ – investigation
Former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae on BBC Radio Scotland
I signed up a pre-contract with Rangers when I was at kindly. You have to realise Jordan Jones just isn’t going down tools. He revealed what he attracts and that’s the main reason why Rangers have signed up him.
It is a disappointing result of Rangers and dents their championship aspirations. I always felt the four or three games after the winter would define Rangers’ season when you consider that expectations have improved and they have included a number big games to their own squad, they came up short.
Whatever shape you play, you can’t legislate for the defending from Worrall that directed to Brophy’s goal. That lent Kilmarnock an additional inspiration and yard, and Rangers couldn’t suit . That are the worrying thing for Steven Gerrard.
