STEVEN GERRARD has watched his Rangers team slam in TEN goals without reply in two games and reckons they can keep the run going against Dundee at Ibrox tomorrow night.

The Liverpool legend watched his side fire blanks in the goalless draw against St Johnstone, but have come out with all guns blazing to thumoe five past Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup replay and another handful against Hamilton Accies at the weekend.

Gerrard has also seen his defence keep clean sheet as they remain right points behind Celtic in the Premiership.

The Gers were frustrated by the Tayside outfit the last time they met as they were held to a 1-1 draw, despite the home side being forced to play for 10 men for over 70 minutes.

Gerrard feels confidence flowing among his squad and, speaking to Sky Sports, said: “The December game with Dundee was very frustrating. It’s still a result that to this day doesn’t really sit too well for us.

“We huffed and puffed. We had all the ball without any real success in the final third. We also scored a legitimate goal that wasn’t given, so it was a frustrating afternoon.

“We’ll show Dundee the respect they deserve. We’ll expect it to be tough, but we’re going in with good form and confidence after two 5-0 victories against Killie and Hamilton.

“I’d like to think we’re riding the crest of a wave. The reaction from the St Johnstone draw has been really positive. The goals and the clean sheets are very nice, but I’ve been more impressed with the hunger and mentality of the group. We’ve got that wrong at times.

“There is always a danger at times at Rangers that the players can get a bit complacent and think they can just turn up. That can’t be the case. We have to show intent and hunger in every game.”

Gerrard will welcome back Alfredo Morelos from suspension, but Andy Halliday is set to miss out.
