Steven Gerrard has given a brilliant response when asked if Rangers can finally beat their dominant rivals Celtic to the Scottish league title.
Gerrard will be going into his first season as Rangers manager and all eyes will be on him and the side. You can be sure that the red side of Merseyside will be hoping to see their hero do well at this new club.
And the England international is still his same old self, it seems. When asked whether he can guide his new club to the league title, Gerrard said:
“It’s a difficult question to answer as it’s a long season and this is just the start,” he said to the Telegraph.
“We made a lot of changes for a reason – we felt the squad needed that amount of surgery to help it compete.
“We don’t want to put any targets or added pressure on us than is already on us at the moment. All I’ve said to [the players] is just to focus on each game at a time.
“The idea is to make the squad as strong as possible in each position and have variety in every position, so we have the quality to compete across the whole season.
“But we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. The important thing is to focus on Aberdeen. Every fan, every pundit, every media guy will have his opinion on where Rangers are at the minute. I don’t think we need to get involved in that. We have confidence and belief in ourselves.
“We’re trying to create a culture, a winning mentality, in the dressing room which helps us grow stronger – but it will take time.”
It’s a fair response from the former midfielder. We wish Gerrard all the best in his inaugural season at Rangers.
