PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Stephen Glass insists Aberdeen were guilty of showing Rangers too much respect after being downed by four goals without reply to fuel an Ibrox title party. The Dons boss believes it was too little, too late for his side after a series of self-inflicted wounds which included an own goal by keeper Joe Lewis in the fifth minute as they were dismantled by Steven Gerrard's champions. Glass accused his side of standing on ceremony and being masters of their own downfall despite an improvement after the interval. He said: “In the first half we weren’t good enough.

Glass refused to play the blame game with keeper Lewis and he's adamant a poor start and a few bad breaks was their undoing. He said: “Conceding the early goal makes a difficult task even harder.

“The chances missed in the second half. Ryan Hedges had one, Fraser Hornby had a couple and Lewis Ferguson had a couple too. "But when you start the game like we did her then it’s an uphill task. I don’t feel positive on the back of a result like this, but I’ve seen encouraging signs since I’ve been at the club. “I do know what’s needed to change things and I’ll make the changes that’s required, when we can. “We’ll continue building and the players now know how we work.
