|Steven Gerrard calls for 'heroes and warriors' as Rangers eye Europa League progress
| maxbet Steven Gerrard admits he will need "heroes and warriors" if Rangers are to battle past FC Ufa and claim their place in the Europa League group stage.The Light Blues claimed a slender 1-0 advantage over the Russians at Ibrox thanks to Connor Goldson's first-half winner.
But boss Gerrard is frustrated his side will not be taking a bigger lead with them when they head to the Republic of Bashkortostan next Thursday.The second leg promises to be Gers' biggest clash in the six years since the club was plunged into a financial black hole - with more than £2.5m riding on their qualification to the round-robin phase.
Now their manager has urged his men to prove they are up for the fight.He said: "Is our lead enough? I'd like a bigger advantage, of course I would. Listen, we've got another tough game next week. maxbet The clean sheet might be important, that's certainly a positive. We won't be getting carried away.
"We understand maxbet and respect the opposition and we need a performance full of heroes and warriors next week. But we are capable of going there, being hard to play against and defending well like we've shown before. We are also capable of getting an important away goal."It would be a shame (if we missed out on the group stages) - we've got to go there and make sure it's not a shame.
