Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronkhorst has given his verdict on his team's defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last night.
Despite losing the clash, Van Bronkhorst was pleased with his side's performance against the Reds.
As quoted by Anfield Watch on Twitter, he told the BBC the following: "Don't forget the opposition we are playing. You see today the level they can reach. The gap is obvious. You have to look at the squads - we are competing against one of the best sides in Europe.
"It doesn't mean you have to lose the game. I think we competed really well, and we will learn from this game. We should take those experiences into the next game and into the league."

Anfield Watch Verdict
To be fair to Rangers, they did defend reasonably well against Liverpool. But, they never really looked like scoring until the dying moments of the game.
So, Liverpool certainly deserved to claim the three points. The Reds needed a solid victory after drawing 3-3 with Brighton and Hove Albion last Saturday.
Liverpool will have to be at their best if they are to secure the three points against Arsenal.
