STEVEN GERRARD insists he won’t concede the Premiership title to Celtic despite Rangers dropping two crucial points at Easter Road.

Florian Kamberi cancelled out Daniel Candeias’ first half opener to deny the Gers in a game that they should have won easily.

Celtic now have the chance to extend their advantage when they host Aberdeen and Gerrard knows it was another opportunity missed for the Light Blues.

He said: “The gap was eight points. The challenge was to make it five and add a bit of pressure.

“I thought first half they were looking to carry that out. We then got involved in a game we didn’t have to get involved in. We should have been three or four up.

“Maybe it was already out of reach. I don’t know.

“You can get away with a performance like this once a season, twice if you’re lucky.

“When you are chasing a team who have won seven trophies out of last seven, you can’t have five or six like this.

“It’s happened three times against Hibs, another couple of occasions. Five or six times a season, good teams don’t let you get away with that.

“I don’t concede anything. We’ve got a huge game on Tuesday, very important.

“I’m sure everyone will talk about it being eve more important now. I get it. But I won’t sit here and concede anything.”

The title race wasn’t the only concern for Gerrard at full-time as Scottish football once again made headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Captain James Tavernier was attacked by a Hibernian fan late in the first half and Easter Road chief executive Leeann Dempster apologised to Rangers as she vowed to take action against the perpetrator.

Gerrard said: “I’ve only just been told about that in the last couple of minutes. Very disappointed to hear that.

“We’ve had an apology from Hibs. We’ll accept the apology. But again I’m talking about fan behaviour.

“I don’t really know what to say because it seems every press conference the last two or three weeks.

“We appreciate the apology, James appreciates it. We accept it and. Move on.

“When we’re getting to the stage with fans running on to pitch, we’ve got a problem

“That’s for Hibs and their security team to address. There’s nothing I can do to stop them.

“If it’s in someone’s head they’re going to run on the pitch, not much you can do to stop it.

“I’ve said what I need to say on the matter. I wasn’t aware of the incident until maybe five minutes ago. It adds to the disappointment of the game.”
