Stevie wants a 10 out of 10 midfield schemer to help unlock defences
but hopefully Kyle will be available now to help us.”
Meanwhile, Northern Ireland veteran Gareth McAuley (right) is now fit and in contention to start for Rangers against Well today.
After shipping four goals in Moscow against Spartak in the Europa League on Thursday night, the 38-year-old could be thrown in for his first start since signing from West Brom. Gerrard said: “Gareth is here to challenge the other three centre-backs and he’s in my thinking.
“It’s a match that suits him because Motherwell go direct at times, trying to bombard your box with crosses and set-pieces.
“They go from back to front pretty quickly. So I’d have no qualms about playing Gareth whether it’s from the bench or the start. It’s his type of game.
“His presence and size can cause problems. He has scored many a set-piece goal in his career and that can be a tool for us.
“I wish I had him available the last time we played Motherwell when they scored late on. He’d have been a big help.”
