Rangers are preparing to host Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday, March 4.

Ahead of the game, the Gers head coach Steven Gerrard spoke out on his future at the club.

After being knocked out of the Scottish Cup on Saturday, Gerrard said that he planned “to do some real serious thinking in the next 24-48 hours”.

And when asked on Tuesday if that included considering his future, the manager replied: “Long term? No, no, no.”

“I’m in,” he said. “I’ve signed up to something here. I’m in, I’m all in.

“I always knew there was going to be periods like this that were tough, with real setbacks, but I think this is when the club needs me most.

“That’s to stay strong, fight on, push and continue to try and improve this and build on the progress we’ve made in so many areas. And we have to learn from some of the things that haven’t gone so well and avoid them happening again.

“I never ever thought ‘now is the time’ or now I should do something hasty.

“It was a time where I needed to think about where we’re at, what needs to be done. I think the priority is the short term, to bounce back and have the players and myself ready for Wednesday’s challenge. And we need to get through the six fixtures before the international break in the best possible way we can. Hopefully we’ve still some things to fight for come the international break.

“In the summer I’ll sit down with the board and discuss how to move forward together.”
