Against ten men, Gerrard would have expected his side to keep the lead safe through the final 15 minutes of the game, but they conceded goals to Rafa Silva and Darwin Nunez to share the points with the Portuguese giants.
Rangers are top of the league in Scotland though, and are on an excellent winning run. Against the bottom team in the division, who have only accumulated seven points in 11 games so far, Gerrard will expect his side to win without too many hassles.
