RYAN JACK has told his Rangers team-mates they must follow Steven Gerrard’s orders and take more responsibility.

The Ibrox has told the players they have to respond to their recent poor displays that have seen them knocked out of the Betfred League Cup by Aberdeen, drop two points at home to Spartak Moscow in the Europa League and draw 1-1 with Kilmarnock in Govan on Wednesday.

Midfielder Jack said: “The players on the pitch have to take responsibility.

“We can’t be saying: ‘Oh, it’s this, it’s that,’ and making excuses. It’s us who are on the pitch. It’s us who cross the white line to go on and do the business.

“In the last couple of games, we have not produced, but it’s important to stay calm. There is no crisis. There is no negativity. It’s important we just stick together. If we do that, I’m sure we will come good.

“We have a lot of experienced players, a lot of players who have their say and a lot of players who have been at the club before.

“There is a lot of experience in the squad, so it’s important we knuckle down and stick together.”

Rangers travel to struggling St Mirren tomorrow.
