Flashback: Celtic fans have their say on Steven Gerrard’s appointment

Summer 2018 was a big one in Scotland. Steven Gerrard’s appointment at Ibrox was a big one that shook up the Scottish Premier League. Celtic fans sat back and watched on as they knew that Brendan Rodgers was still the right man for them, and even as Parkhead hero Chris Sutton tweeted to congratulate Gerrard the Hoops were fearless.

You can’t blame them either. They predicted at the time that Gerrard would do little to impact their dominance, and almost 12 months later the Gers are still trophyless whilst the Bhoys have gone on to win their eighth successive Scottish Premier League title and are just one more win in the Scottish Cup final away from a spectacular treble-treble.

However, Gerrard’s appointment was more than just a supposed quick fix at Ibrox. In fact, the quick fix option was ever going to be on the table no matter who was appointed. Instead, getting Gerrard in showed long-term thinking, and whilst he may not have enough time to stop ten in a row, the Bhoys should certainly be worried for the future if the Liverpool hero sticks around.

The Bhoys had no faith in Gerrard changing the scene in Scottish football and so far they’ve only been proven right.
