STEVEN GERRARD has asked the Rangers fans for the same again as he wants Ibrox to be “rocking” when Premiership leaders Hearts visit tomorrow.

The Liverpool legend saw his side claim a rollicking 3-1 Europa League win over Rapid Vienna on Thursday and is now determined to reduce the eight-point deficit on the Edinburgh outfit.

Gerrard said: “We’d love Ibrox to be bouncing and rocking again. I’m sure the supporters are going to be going to Ibrox in good spirits.

“But we also have to play our part. We can’t start slow and wait for the crowd to lift us. On Thursday night, the players fed off the atmosphere and it took them to a really high level. But the players’ quality, their tempo and intensity made the fans even more vocal.

“It worked perfectly and, as a manager, I’d love to see that again on Sunday. Ibrox was rocking, it was shaking, it was bouncing. I’ve experienced that many, many times at Anfield.

“The support was almost like a 12th man and it felt like that against the Austrian team.”
