Former Glasgow Rangers player Thomas Buffel has admitted that he would loved to have played under Steven Gerrard.
Gerrard receives praise from Buffel
Buffel spent three seasons at Ibrox from 2005 to 2008 after signing for £2.5m from Feyenoord. Injuries hampered his time in Glasgow but he is still received as a hero every time he returns to the 54-time Scottish champions – as he admitted himself.
“He’s brought his football knowledge and his experience of a physical game to the team, which is key away from home, and it works. I met him a few months ago. He’s a gentleman and a winner. He’s demanding. I would have liked him to be my manager… and even more my teammate. In the current team, there’s still two of my ex-teammates: McGregor and Davis.”
Gerrard the kind of boss you want to play for
It seems that Gerrard’s stock continues to rise. Given his stellar playing career, he already has plenty of respect in the game that makes players want to play for him, and he now appears to be putting that to good use. So far this term, his side are unbeaten after 15 matches in all competitions.
Will Gerrard be at Rangers next season?
During his time with the ‘Gers, Buffel played under club hero Walter Smith, one of the greatest managers to ever be in charge of the the Glasgow-based outfit. As such, you would assume he knows a good boss when he sees one – this is noteworthy praise for Gerrard.
