Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has made some comments highly critical of the Gers team which lost at Luxembourg minnows Progres in Europe last season.
The newly appointment Gers boss told the official club website that the team which lost to Progress were ‘complacent’, and that he wouldn’t allow that to happen whilst he was in charge at Ibrox.
You don’t usually hear of a manager criticising the former manager – as Gerrard seems to be subtly doing here – and he has also had a go at some players who will feature for him at Ibrox, who lost to Progres.
But Gerrard is right to speak out the way he is, and this type of attitude is needed if the Gers are to return to the to of Scottish football.
Gerrard might have been at Ibrox only a matter of weeks, but he already seems to understand that the Gers are all about winning matches, something which seems to have eluded some of the recent occupiers of the Ibrox hot seat.
Most importantly, the fans will agree with Gerrard’s comments about the loss to Progres. The result was arguably one of the most embarrassing in the club’s history, and Gerrard has already indicated that results like that won’t be permitted in his time as Gers boss.
If the Gers boss continues to demand so much from his players as his comments suggest, then he could be a major success at Ibrox.
