Lowe believes the Reds answered critics of their recent form with a “good performance” against Gerrard’s side – and thinks they could have scored more.

“We are gutted in the dressing room,” Lowe said, as quoted by the Evening Times.

“We had a lot of chances which we could have scored from and the goal we gave away from the set-piece was cheap. There was a question mark over us due to recent results but we answered that with a good performance.”

The Dons will fancy their chances at Ibrox after beating the Gers twice in Glasgow already this season.
