'Steven will not allow that' - Exclusive: Gerrard ex-teammate drops Rangers dressing room claim

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard will not allow complacency to creep into his side this season, according to Paul Robinson.

The former England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said his former teammate will know that “he is sitting on the edge of something really special” in the Scottish Premiership title.

An own-goal from Celtic’s Callum McGregor helped the Light Blues to a 1-0 victory over their Old Firm rivals on Saturday.

The win opens up a 19 points gap at the top of the Scottish Premiership, although the Hoops have three games in hand.

Next up for the Gers is a difficult trip to Pittodrie to face an Aberdeen side unbeaten in their last six games.

When asked by Football Insider if complacency was now Rangers’ biggest enemy, Robinson said: “Steven will not allow that to creep in at all.

“Knowing Steven and playing with him, complacency is not a word in his vocabulary.

“It is so long since Rangers have won a title, he will know that he is sitting on the edge of something really special here.

“He certainly will not be allowing any of those players in the dressing room let up in any way, shape or form. They will keep their foot to the floor all the way until the end of the title race.

“I cannot see Celtic mounting a realistic challenge now. All I can see is Rangers winning the title, it is theirs to lose now.”
