Steven Gerrard admits he is not satisfied with second best as he strives to make Rangers real challengers next season after the Light Blues guaranteed the Ladbrokes Premiership runners-up slot by beating Aberdeen with two James Tavernier penalties.

Their 2-0 Ibrox win - Gers’ first against the Dons in Glasgow this season - also further delayed Celtic’s wait for the title as they closed the gap on the champions-elect to nine points with nine still available.

If we make those three things happen, I’m confident we can be more competitive next season.” Joe Lewis had frustrated Rangers with some stunning first-half saves but Lewis Ferguson’s trip on Nikola Katic gave Rangers a penalty which Tavernier tucked home for his 15th goal of the season.

But Gerrard admits he will not be happy until his side are putting up a proper fight for the league crown.

The Aberdeen defender was stunned by referee Don Robertson’s decision and his frustrations were compounded as he was shown a second yellow card.

There was still time for former Rangers captain Lee Wallace - out of contract this summer - to get a late standing ovation in tribute to his loyalty in the wake of the club’s financial implosion seven years ago.

“Second place is not enough,” said the former Champions League winner after seeing his side end Aberdeen’s four-year run as the ‘best of the rest’.
