After Sunday's defeat against Celtic in the League Cup final, a positive result against Young Boys will provide a massive boost to the club. "But that's all agreed", said Gerrard.

Gerrard stated official confirmation of renewals for Allan McGregor and Steven Davis could arrive after Rangers take on Young Boys on Thursday with a place in the last 32 of the Europa League on the line.
"Allan McGregor and Steven Davis' deals are imminent", Gerrard said.
"They're two players I want around for a year's extension on top of this year".
Gerrard added: "Jermain's is a bit different because he's obviously Bournemouth's player until the end of the year".More news: Pacers' Vic Oladipo revealed on The Masked Singer
