Former Liverpool coach Alex Miller has given his insight into Steven Gerrard’s potential as Rangers manager.
Gerrard begins his first managerial job at Ibrox on June the 1st, and Miller believes that what he witnessed from Miller in the Anfield dressing room can make him a success in the Ibrox hot seat.
“Steven will demand high standards but he will be very fair,’ he said, as quoted by the Daily Mail. ‘
“He’s never been a shouter. He is quiet around the dressing room and he speaks to people individually to motivate them that way.
“He showed on the pitch how a professional footballer should go about his duties and he will get a lot of respect from that. And the players will want to play for him because he’s a good leader.”
Football Insider verdict
These comments from Miller are very interesting, as no one knows what kind of manager Steven Gerrard will be. Perhaps he will remain quiet in the dressing room and his assistant Gary McAllister will be the member of staff who shouts at the players. Or maybe he will change his persona from his playing days completely. Perhaps to show who is boss, he will be an intimidating manager, who rules his players through fear. Gerrard’s appointment really is a step into the unknown, which is what makes it so intriguing and exciting. It is unlikely that Rangers fans will care about what kind of manager Gerrard is, as long as he is a winning one. Gers fans feel that the club has been in the shadows of Celtic for long enough, and want to see the club return to the top of Scottish football. Gerrard may well be the man to get the Gers back to where they believe thy belong.
