Steven Gerrard looked shell-shocked as he faced Sky Sports following his side’s 1-0 defeat from Dundee United.
After living inside the Ibrox media bubble Gerrard and his team were met with a very hostile crowd at Tannadice with Charlie Mulgrew leading a side that wasn’t going to roll over.
New signing John Lundstrum looked like a whale out of his comfort zone as he lumbered around in midfield with Dundee United players swarming all over the Liverpool-born ace.
??”I’m not sure we deserved to lose the game. The reality is we have lost two games on the spin. We have to take responsibility for that. It is a chance to reset and give some people some home truths.”

United contested every ball with conviction despite losing their opening match 2-0 to Aberdeen last Sunday.
When their big chance came Jamie Robson slotted his shot past Jon McLaughlin with Greegsy looking on from the substitutes bench.
Gerrard and tactics guru Michael Beale threw on Scott Wright, Cedric Itten and Jermain Defoe but there wasn’t even a penalty to be awarded despite five additional minutes added by Don Robertson.
On Tuesday night Gerrard must lift his stars to overturn a 2-1 first leg defeat from Malmo in a Champions League qualifier.
