Rangers manager Steven Gerrard suffered a shock 2-1 defeat to Hearts in his 100th game at the helm of the club and was quoted saying that his side was "unrecognisable".
Hearts who are the bottom of the Scottish Premiership came back from a goal down to shock the Ibrox outfit on Sunday and the result did not sit well with Gerrard and was fuming at his charges after a poor performance.
"It was a poor performance. I didn't recognise us from the start of the game to the finish," Gerrard was quoted by Sky Sports.
"Hearts deserved their win. They rushed us off the pitch and rattled us. They dominated us in terms of the ugly side of the game.
"We've been really organised, competed well and won second balls until now away from home, but there was nothing on either side of our game.
"It's always frustrating when you lose a game but I'm shocked as I didn't see that coming. You can lose a football match, but I didn't recognise my players and everything we work on daily."
Rangers title hopes have now been thrown into the works after dropping five points behind rivals Celtic but they still have time to make up for it and they will hope to secure a win when they take on Ross County on Wednesday, January 29.
Gerrard added: "We were really poor first half but we were at 0-0 and I could get into them at half-time.
"We got ourselves in front with a really good goal but then fell back into the trap seen during the first half. We've gifted them two goals. We had the best chances in the 90 minutes, four or five when we were through on goal, but we can't hide behind that.
"That's not the reason why we lost the game. We weren't good enough both in and out of possession, and more often than not that will mean you get beat."
