KILMARNOCK boss Steve Clarke insists his team could have piled even more pressure on Steven Gerrard following the 1-1 draw with Rangers at Ibrox last night.

The Rugby Park side were a goal adrift in only nine minutes when a low drive from Alfredo Morelos was deflected beyond Jamie MacDonald.

However, Greg Stewart came back with a quickfire equaliser and Clarke believed he could have been the matchwinner.

The Killie gaffer, whose team remain three points above Gers in third place, said: “I believe we’re the first team in the league to come here and stop Rangers getting all three points, so we can be pleased with that.

“But, we’re also a little bit disappointed because we also had opportunities, especially in the second-half when the game opened up a little bit.

“We could have scored because Greg Stewart got away at the start of injury time and with a little bit of luck we might have nicked another goal.

“With a little bit more care and attention, we might have had all three points.”
