Gerrard looking to build on positive start

Rangers will head to Switzerland on the back of winning their opening match of the group stage against Feyenoord at Ibrox last month, while Young Boys were beaten in Porto on the same night. That means another victory on Thursday will put the Gers in a commanding position to qualify from the group and Gerrard is targeting a victory at the Stade de Suisse, although he feels avoiding defeat and consolidating their strong start to the campaign has to be their first priority. "The challenge is different this time around, so we are coming here to try and win the game and we will do everything we can to do that," Gerrard told reporters. "But, it is important we take something away from this fixture and try to build on the three points we started with." The Glasgow giants are currently on a five-match winning run across all competitions since losing to Old Firm rivals Celtic at the start of September and Gerrard feels the belief is high within his squad. "Confidence should be high and belief should be high - we are in a good place," the former Liverpool star added. "The reaction since the Old Firm, which I touched upon a few days ago, has been really positive."
