STEVEN GERRARD has reminded his Rangers players of their Covid responsibilities.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon last night blasted the Aberdeen stars that breached strict regulations following their Premiership defeat to Gerrard's side seven days ago.

Eight Dons players have now been ordered to self-isolate after going for a meal and drink in the city that has been placed in local lockdown.

The rule break has spread fears that Scottish football could be halted once again and Ibrox boss Gerrard has urged his players to continue playing their part in making the game as safe as possible.

Gerrard said: “We’ve reacted accordingly and we’ve already sat down with the players and reminded them of their responsibilities.

“We did that on Friday morning before we left Germany. We do it quite regularly, but obviously there have been some developments while we were away so it does no harm to remind the players.

“It’s about making sure no one becomes complacent. We need to make sure that everyone is following the strict guidelines and the rules.

“We are doing everything we can to stay safe and play our part. The players all have to stay professional first of all and keep doing the right things.

“There could be a second wave, no one is really sure.

“So we need to keep following the advice and we are certainly doing that with our medical people. We have to keep our guard up and everyone at Rangers will try and play their part. Shutting things down again would not be ideal, just the thought of that hurts.

“We’ve all been through a lot, everyone’s situation is different. But we’ve got football back and I think that’s been helpful for everyone. We all need to make sure we do all we can to keep the season moving along."
