Rangers boss Steven Gerrard considering his future

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is considering his future after their Scottish Cup exit at the hands of Hearts.

Liverpool legend Gerrard said he would spend Sunday doing some "serious thinking" after his side were beaten 1-0 by Hearts in Saturday's quarter-final.

He said: “I'm very disappointed. It's the lowest I've felt since I came into the job by a long way.

“The performance today was nowhere near good enough.

“On Wednesday night I was the proudest man in Europe because my players were outstanding.

“Everything we've worked on for two years, I could see it on the sidelines. I was proud as punch, it was incredible.

“But today for 90 minutes, I didn't recognise anything. So I'm feeling really low.

“Two seasons without a trophy isn't good enough. It's not what I'm about.

“But that's where it comes down on my shoulders.

“I need to think now. The plan was to have a day off on Sunday. But I need to think hard about where we are. I'll do some serious thinking in the next 24 to 48 hours."
