Gerrard was understandably delighted with the Rangers' performance by coming through another stern examination of their character, to leapfrog Glasgow Celtic and grab the top spot by that all-important one point lead.
Gerrard insists that the Teddy Bears are not a dirty side after Arfield and his Rangers team=mates have now accumulated seven red cards amongst them so far this season.
"There is only so much I can do".
"Jela" also reflects on the success he enjoyed during his time in Scotland and chats about his friendship with current Croatia and Rangers star Borna Barisic, his best goal for the club - which happened to be a sensational finish against Aberdeen - and the forthcoming Europa League match against Rapid Vienna, the club he joined Rangers from for a fee of £4 million.
Booked for a clash with Graeme Shinnie, another foul on the Dons skipper saw the Colombian received a second yellow in the 64th minute as his team chased an equaliser. So there's the job and the task - it's huge.

Gerrard said: "Craig's entitled to his opinion, like I am when I speak about Hearts or Aberdeen or whoever it may be". 'The second one he deserves. "We never lost the belief even after going 1-0 down, we came back very fast and in the end we got a very good return". Very frustrated in the performance.
'I never felt good about anything that we did, individually or collectively.
"I am really proud of the guys today, we really showed character all the time".
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes was beaming at team's triumph, and said: "It's a real shot in the arm when you see the players put so much in".
'We've got the majority of things wrong tonight all over the pitch'.
