STEVEN GERRARD insists Rangers will continue to strive for improvement next season as they prepare for a reaction from Celtic at the end of a one-sided Premiership campaign.

The champions emphasised their superiority this term with a 4-1 derby victory on Sunday as Kemar Roofe netted twice and Alfredo Morelos and Jermain Defoe also found the target at Ibrox.

Rangers are now just two fixtures - away to Livingston and at home to Aberdeen - away from an unbeaten league term after recording their fourth Old Firm win of the season.

It is shaping up to be a hugely significant summer in Glasgow as Rangers attempt to build on their 55th title triumph and Celtic gear up for an overhaul of their squad under the guidance of a new manager and off-field structure.

But Gerrard and Sporting Director Ross Wilson will embark on their own close season work in an attempt to capitalise on Rangers' position of strength after the balance of power shifted across Glasgow.

Gerrard said: “What happens across the road is not really my business.

“But we're certainly aware of what's going on over there and what type of reaction that side will be looking for. We'll always respect that and prepare for it.

“At Rangers recruitment never stops. I've been around the game long enough, even though I'm an inexperienced manager, to know you can't stand still.

“We have to still identify areas of our group where we can help them get stronger because we're not the finished article.

“Just because we've been fantastic in one league campaign and again been impressive in Europe, there is still areas and consistency that we need to strive for.

“My job and Ross' job with the scouting network is to identify players who can help this group because in year four it's key we have new faces who can energise not just us but the fans and everyone connected with the club. So yes we will be striving to get better."
