Ryan Jack looks set to miss the Group G match in the Estadio de la Ceramica due to a calf injury and Gerrard is hoping the Scot's fellow central midfielders Coulibaly and Ejaria will be fit.

Steven Gerrard left his Rangers players in no doubt about the Ibrox standards he expects on Saturday night after ripping into the performance of a rampant 4-0 victory over Dundee.

"It was some minutes in his legs", Gerrard said on Rangers TV.

"I want an exciting team here full of pace and speed, and he'll certainly add to that", the Gers manager concluded.

Next up for Rangers is a tough-looking trip to Villarreal for their Europa League opener, and Gerrard's men will be desperate to return to Glasgow with something to show for their efforts. I just want us to be consistent.

'We deserve more goals.

"But I don't just want to get a 3-0 lead and take the foot off the gas". At the same time we were on the back of an Old Firm defeat so we have had to chew on that for a couple of weeks, which is never nice. I didn't like it going from end to end. The performance was patchy today. Gerrard was not entirely satisfied, though, and compared the first half to another game, basketball, as his side were not in complete control of it. Second half, we were a lot better than the first.

'That was his strongest performance.

"I think Ryan has been overly concerned with his numbers within his own game. It will happen. Keep doing what you're doing".

'But if you keep putting too much pressure on yourself you go into your shell rather than just relaxing and letting it happen. "Hopefully we can use him again on Thursday if the fitness coach allows". When he's in that form he's unplayable'.
