Steven Gerrard hasn’t been put off the Rangers job after watching the crazy 5-5 draw on the final game of the season against Hibs.
In fact, he’s sent out a warning message to Brendan Rodgers and Celtic, saying to watch out and that “Celtic have had it their own way for far too long”.
Talking in the Scottish Sun, Gerrard added: “This is a massive opportunity for myself and Gary McAllister to go to a huge football club and try to improve things in Glasgow.
“We go up and we will give it our best. Liverpool have been fantastic because they actually came to me and said that Rangers would like to speak to me.
“I asked them what they thought and they have since given me every bit of support that I needed to go and take the challenge on. I go with Liverpool’s blessings.”
Football Insider verdict:
The 5-5 draw pretty much sums up Rangers’ season – all over the place. Gerrard will have been watching and shaking his head at some of the defending and he knows that he’s got a real job in front of him now. However, he’s obviously full of confidence and relishing the challenge. We love the fact that he’s ramping up the war of words with Celtic already. The Old Firm clashes are going to be even bigger than normal next season, with the added media spotlight on the clash between Gerrard and Brendan Rodgers creating a compelling new narrative on the pitch. The big question is whether Gerrard can deliver on the pitch and the next transfer window is arguably the most crucial in Rangers’ recent history. If Gerrard can get it right and gets the money he needs to rebuild, then next season in the Premiership could be very interesting indeed.
