STEVEN GERRARD is determined to improve Rangers' rotten recent record at Rugby Park.

The Gers have won just once away to Kilmarnock in their last eight attempts on league business.

But now they have the chance to extend their advantage over Celtic at the top of the Premiership as they prepare for a tricky test against Alex Dyer's side on Sunday

Rangers head to Ayrshire defending an unbeaten league run this season and boss Gerrard said: "When you are playing against the block, you have to have variety in our play.

"Obviously I don't want to give too much away but it is important you move the ball quick and you have variety in your play so you are not predictable and not everything is in front of the Killie defence.

"You have to go over at times, you have to go round and make sure that when your opportunities come that you are really clinical because Killie are a team that is well-drilled, organised and don't give much away.

"The pitch certainly helps them to play that way as well. So we know it is a tricky game, a tough place and we know that our record could and should be better at Rugby Park.

"But it is another fresh game, it is an opportunity to go there and try and put in a good performance.

"We couldn't be in a better place really, because our form is good at the moment, people are healthy, fresh and ready."
