Steven Gerrard could miss Rangers' title winning game after red card

He bombarded the referee with complaints at half-time

Steven Gerrard was shown a red card by referee John Beaton during Rangers' clash with Livingston on Wednesday evening.

As the two sides made their way inside for the half-time break, the Rangers boss berated Beaton, visibly angered by some decisions the referee had made during the first 45 minutes.

The 40-year-old manager was shown a yellow card during his rant, but was undeterred by the caution and kept going until Beaton was left with no choice but to expel Gerrard for the remainder of the game.

This means the Scottish Premiership leaders could be without Gerrard in the dugout for their game against St Mirren next Saturday - when they could secure their first league title in ten years.

If they're unable to secure the title at the weekend, they will do it in their following game, against Celtic, after the March international break, which would obviously make it all the more sweet.

Some Gers fans might subtly be hoping they delay the celebration until then, firstly so they can do it against their oldest and greatest enemies, but also so Gerrard can be part of the celebration after restoring the club to the top of Scottish football.

We now await the decision from the Scottish FA on Gerrard's punishment.
