Rangers TV pundit: This Ibrox player issue is 'worrying Gerrard the most'
Alan Hutton has claimed a lack of killer edge is Steven Gerrard’s biggest worry at Rangers this season.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gers defender and boyhood Bear admitted no attacker at Ibrox have managed to hit “top form”.
Joe Aribo scored the only goal as Rangers ran out winners against Dundee on Saturday.
However, things could have been different had it not been for Jon McLaughlin’s penalty save.
The 34-year-old kept out Jason Cummings’ effort after bringing Paul McMullan down in the box.
Rangers have netted 12 goals in the Premiership this season, less than Celtic and Hibernian and the same as newly promoted Hearts.

Their profligacy has seen them drop points to both Dundee United and Motherwell.
Hutton suggested the Gers’ inability to finish chances would be Gerrard’s biggest concern at the moment.
Asked about Rangers’ inability to kill teams off this season, Hutton told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “I think that’s probably the thing that’s worrying him (Gerrard) the most.
“He’ll be happy they’re creating lots of chances, as they do in most games. It’s just being clinical in that final third that’s pretty much letting them down.
“Nobody’s really hit top, top form this year. The worry off the back of that is the defensive frailties we’ve seen in recent weeks.
“Against Motherwell, the Woolery goal and then McMullan running through one-on-one with the goalkeeper. The penalty came from that.
“That’s probably two aspects of the game that Steven Gerrard will be looking to work on.”
Aribo and Kemar Roofe are Rangers’ joint-highest scorers in the league this season with two goals.
Eight others have found the back of the net once this term.
