Glasgow Rangers enjoyed a good week in France.
The Gers won the Veolia Trophy, a pre-season tournament, thanks to 2-0 victories against both Lyon and Nice. Whilst it may have only been a warm-up competition, it is still positive for the club that they beat two good sides so easily, and they can now look forward to their first league game of the season, which comes against Aberdeen on August 1st at Pittodrie.
Steven Gerrard spoke after the match on Saturday against Nice about the whole experience, and it is fair to say that it was an interesting one. Kai Kennedy’s future at the club is in doubt after he reportedly refused to sign a new contract, and Gerrard appeared to take aim at the 18-year-old when he criticised certain “egos” in the academy and said that those who aren’t committed can leave.
Do you agree with Gerrard's comments?
This has attracted the attention of the Gers supporters, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.

This comes across poorly. Puts unnecessary heat on the academy and players given he doesn’t mention anyone in particular. Media wise he just isn’t getting it. https://t.co/gQE0DcIqPc

Airing dirty laundry..
That’s why Gary McAllister should just do the interviews etc

He doesn’t pull his punches, does he?!!

This is a trait that I don’t like in Steven Gerrard and one I hoped that he would’ve learned by now
Wearing your heart on your sleeve and criticising players in public is not a good look
Kennedy’s punishment for having an ego is not going on the trip. This helps nobody

Ooft. There’ll be a few Academy boys shaking after hearing that 👀
