It will be important for the Gers that Lovenkrands and Gerrard quickly establish a good relationship, as the Dane will be one of the men in charge of finding the next set of young players ready to follow in the footsteps of Ross McCrorie and make the leap to the Gers’ first-team.
If the pair get on well, then it all bodes well for the Gers’ future.
