STEVEN GERRARD insists Rangers won’t look one step ahead to a Hampden showdown with Celtic as they prepare for their Scottish Cup clash against Aberdeen.

The Light Blues face Derek McInnes’ side on Tuesday night in a quarter-final replay after drawing the first fixture 1-1 as Joe Worrall cancelled out Sam Cosgrove’s early penalty.

The draw for the last four saw a potential Old Firm semi-final set up but Gerrard knows the Gers can’t take anything for granted against the Dons.

He said: “I think any game against Aberdeen is always huge and the message from me is forget the semi-final.

“We’ve got a big, tough challenge smacking us in the face tomorrow and we need to go and perform at a level that is capable of us getting the right result.

“I think it would be very naive of the players to be thinking about Hampden. We’ve got a job to do at Ibrox first and foremost.

“It’s a fantastic game under the lights against a big rival with a chance to go into the last four, that’s mouth-watering for me and it should be for the players.

“We just prepare for a good Aberdeen team, a team that has been very effective on the road of late, and we do our normal preparation.

“We give the players a game plan and we show them Aberdeen’s strengths and weaknesses and then we go out and prepare and focus on ourselves to make sure we get the level of performance that we are looking for.”
