Steven Gerrard feels it would not be wise for him to make any predictions about Rangers' chances of dominating Scottish football.

Ibrox chairman Dave King this week stated that they were "now within tangible reach of Rangers becoming the dominant force in Scottish football again".

When asked whether King's opinion matches his own analysis, Rangers manager Gerrard said: "In terms of the statement, he is obviously well within his rights to say what he believes and what his opinion is.

"In terms of tangible Scottish dominance, for me I don't think it's sensible for me to make any predictions.

"For me the challenge is for me to have this squad and this team ready to compete for what's available next season. I don't have to really look further than that.

"We want to finish this season as strongly as we can and then get ourselves best prepared to have another go next year to win the next trophy that's available, and that's the League Cup."

Gerrard revealed he had held talks with King over progress during his first season in charge and what needs to change over the summer.

He added: "The chairman is well within his rights to have his opinion, I certainly respect and welcome his opinion.

"I caught up with him recently on the phone and we had a very in-depth chat about where we are, the areas where we feel like we have progressed, the areas where I feel as if we fell short.

"We had a really honest and open conversation and I'm going to be catching up with him face to face in the coming weeks as well."
