Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will not let the four players who allegedly breached Covid-19 lockdown rules to derail the club’s “outstanding season”, according to Paul Robinson.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, Robinson backed his former England teammate to handle the situation “in the right way”, as he has done through his “superb” tenure at Ibrox.
Football Insider exclusively broke the news at 7pm on Sunday that Rangers had launched an internal probe into an incident that occurred in the west end of Glasgow on Saturday night.
Police broke up a flat party in the early hours of the morning and four Rangers players are believed to have been in attendance.
This site revealed on Monday that the club are discussing plans to suspend those in question for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.
When asked by Football Insider how his longstanding friend Gerrard would likely react to the Sunday’s incident, Robinson said: “It is bad press and it is something that Steven will not want to deal with.
“I have no doubts though that he will conduct himself impeccably and handle this in the right way. That is what he has done throughout his tenure there, he has been nothing short of superb.
“He has been exemplary both on and off the field. I have no doubts that he will do the same with this incident.
“He will not let it derail an outstanding season in which they will win the title at the end of it.”
