Stevie May’s equaliser 10 minutes from time put another dent in Rangers’ title hopes to secure a 2-2 draw for St Johnstone.
Rangers thought they had masterminded a second comeback inside three days when half-time substitute Florian Kamberi fired in his first Rangers goal from James Tavernier’s cross five minutes after coming on, before he turned provider for Joe Aribo to slip in a second 19 minutes from time.
They had needed to improve after a woeful opening period in which they fell behind to Callum Hendry’s smart finish eight minutes in, and only recovered in the last 10 minutes of the half.
The introduction of Kamberi at the break appeared to have turned the tide in their favour, but May had the last laugh when he stabbed home from close range after Nikola Katic had failed to deal with a corner, leaving Gerrard’s men nine points off leaders Celtic.
