Breaking News ! Steven Gerrard shrugged off questions over Alfredo Morelos' future, as he praised the Colombian for his performance in the win over Aberdeen. The Rangers striker is the subject of interest from Lille, with a £17m expected from the Ligue 1 side. Following his side's 1-0 win at Pittodrie the Gers boss was asked by Sky Sports about El Bufalo, and promptly ended the interview. Gerrard replied: "He was brilliant today, wasn't he? "Fantastic. Thanks. He was superb. Cheers."

Gerrard explained: "In an ideal world we want to look great in our style all the time, but that's not real. Over the course of 38 games there are going to be passages of play where the opposition put you under pressure and try to take you out of your comfort zone. "You've got to stay tough, you've got to stay together, you've got to roll your sleeves up and put your body on the line. "At times we did and I thought Leon (Balogun) epitomised that by going into the post. "But you've got to give Aberdeen some credit as well, they never lay down, they always thought they would get back into the game.

"I think players will be getting close to full fitness but you only get full fitness with real games, repeating games and repeating training.

. "As I said prior to this game we want to try and add some new faces to make us better and more competitive over 38 games."

Gerrard was asked for his opinion on his new signing from Brighton and was effusive in his praise: "Outstanding. "He's been in the door six days, this is probably one of the toughest away games - on your debut. "You're only getting used to knowing the players, but from what we've seen prior we had trust in him and he went out and performed. (Image: SNS Group) "He deserves all the plaudits that come his way, I thought he was outstanding. "I thought everyone else in the back-five complimented him, clean sheets get you places where you want to go, so we can build on that. That's the way forward." The match was played without fans - aside from two enterprising Dons who had hired a cherry picker - and the Ibrox boss admits it's not the same with no backing from the stands. Gerrard said: "I don't think I'll ever be able to stand here and say I enjoyed it.

But from (when I was) a very young boy it was all about the fans for me - going to games, being around the crowds, competing as a player. "Unfortunately we didn't have the away end with us today but I know they'll be with us back home or wherever they are watching the game. "But for me fans have to be back as soon as possible when it's safe."
