Steven Gerrard’s appointment as Rangers boss has brought back memories of Graeme Souness’ ‘revolution’ in the late 1980s, where a great player was appointed as Gers boss and had huge success.
Gerrard won’t get the money Souness had to spend, but if he is able to follow Souness’ lead and turn average players into good ones, then we will know that he has the potential to be very special.
A case in point: Lee Hodson. The Northern Irish international has been a forgotten man at Ibrox, making only nine appearances last season.
The right-back, who signed from MK Dons, has struggled for game time, despite still featuring for his international team.
Gerrard might see something in the player, that he is an undiscovered gem who deserves some playing time in the pre-season friendlies at least.
Or he could take a look at the 26-year-old and decide that he has no future at the club, and should move on.
We don’t know yet as Gerrard has never managed a club before, which is what makes his appointment so intriguing.
It is unlikely that we will get any indication of Gerrard’s future plans for his players at his first official press conference as Gers boss on Friday.
But if he is able to save the Gers career of a player whose time at the club looks to be over and make him a mainstay of the side, than he can do anything.
