After 41 unbeaten games in the Scottish Premiership, Steven Gerrard’s Glasgow Rangers fall. The reigning champions were defeated by Dundee United in the second round of the championship: Jamie Robson’s goal was decisive in the 64th minute. Since March 2020, when they were beaten by Hamilton Academical (0-1), Rangers have not lost. “When you face a setback, it’s a chance to reset. We don’t have time to feel sorry for ourselves,” said Steven Gerrard, former Liverpool legend, who brought Rangers back last year. on the roof of Scotland (after 9 years of domination by Celtic rivals and the failure of the Gers in 2012).
