Rangers manager Steven Gerrard arrived at the club’s training ground on Wednesday to properly get started preparing for the coming season – and it should see things step up a gear in preparation for the coming season.
Gerrard was pictured by the Scottish Sun arriving at the Gers’ Auchenhowie training ground in Milngavie a few days before the squad report for pre-season training.
With the Light Blues having already made five new signings this summer, they haven’t been wasting time in identifying targets as they try to close the gap on bitter rivals Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premiership.
After getting his feet under his desk for the first time, Gerrard will now turn his attentions to the players returning on Friday and the 10-day trip to Spain for a training camp.
The Ibrox giants could make their sixth signing imminently with Brighton defender Connor Goldson expected to be confirmed as a Rangers player in the next 24 hours and the Gers look to be rapidly heading in the right direction.
Gerrard’s first competitive game won’t take place until July 12th but with a number of friendlies expected before then, fans will be desperate to see exactly how his side line-up.
There are also a host of players expected to be leaving Ibrox this summer and with Gerrard finally being in Glasgow it should see decisions made over the future of the likes of Fabio Cardoso, Bruno Alves, Jason Holt and Alfredo Morelos.
Gerrard faces arguably the biggest task of his glittering career in football this season when he tries to wrestle the Scottish Premiership crown from bitter rivals Celtic – but things should really step up a gear now the Liverpool icon is firmly behind his desk and ready to go.
