Steven Gerrard saw his Rangers side break a 114-year shut-out record as they brushed aside Dundee United to stay top of the Scottish Premiership

Aubameyang, who has often been deployed on the left flank by Mikel Arteta, played a crucial part in Arsenal’s FA Cup success last season, scoring a brace in the semi-final victory against Manchester City prior to repeating the feat in the final against Chelsea.

‘Although Slaven knows the English game well, there is still that foreign influence. We’ve got young players coming through, overseas players like Matheus Pereira. There is a different feel. We have our style.

Koeman, who changed his entire team at halftime by making 11 substitutions, gave debuts to 17-year-old forward Pedri, new signing Francisco Trincao and American forward Konrad de La Fuente, 19, who stepped up from the club’s reserve side.

Barisic is a major weapon for Rangers given the overall quality of his delivery. Yet, he was afforded so much time to weigh up his options from the flank before firing a dangerous low cross into the heart of the area on 39 minutes .

Gibbs knows what it’s like to be the next big thing, having signed for Arsenal from Wimbledon’s academy in 2004 to become part of a hyped generation with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere. ‘You can understand Mark’s frustration because anyone who watched Grady last season would have seen how influential he is. But it was fortunate for us because we were on the other side of the fence,’ said Gibbs.

Leon Balogun also limped out of the warm-up, Ryan Jack went off after 11 minutes and Borna Barisic was replaced in the second period ahead of the Glasgow outfit’s Europa League second qualifying round trip to Gibraltar to face Lincoln Red Imps on Thursday.

Within a minute, substitute Glen Kamara had headed wide from a Borna Barisic cross and, after Hagi and Filip Helander had put efforts wide, the home side scored from another opportunity created on that left.

Alfredo Morelos, an early substitute for hamstring injury victim Brandon Barker and the subject of a £16million plus bid from Lille earlier in the summer, was taken off on a stretcher on 55 minutes after visiting centre-back Ryan Edwards had appeared to leave his studs in following a challenge.

Club record signing Coutinho got the third goal in the 51st, also from the penalty spot, making his first outing for the team since returning on loan from Bayern Munich, with whom he scored two goals in last month’s 8-2 thrashing of Barca in the Champions League quarter-finals.
