Steven Gerrard has been manager of Glasgow Rangers since June 2018 and he looks to be building a stronger squad that is looking to become more of a challenge to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.
Many have been discussing the manager and his time at the club so far, including former St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright. He was full of praise for the former Liverpool player’s spell in charge of the Scottish side so far.
Speaking to the Sunday Post, Wright said: “Just like at Celtic, the target for Rangers is simple – win the league. Steven will know that. That is what he was brought to the club for. I think he has done extremely well to date.
“He came in – a huge character with a big personality – and he gave the whole of Scottish football a lift. He has had Rangers playing attractive football, which is what you would expect given the quality that he has at his disposal. And they have done brilliantly in Europe.”
It’s hard to disagree with Wright here as Gerrard is doing a very good job at the club so far and has made them more competitive against Old Firm rivals Celtic. This is highlighted by the fact that in 2017/18, before Gerrard arrived, the Gers lost four and drew one against the Bhoys, however in the two seasons he has been in charge, he has now beaten the Hoops three times.
Baring in mind that this is his first proper spell as a manager of a club, the former midfielder is doing a really good job with a historically massive club and has made the rivalry even better as of late with Celtic.
Some of the signings made during his time in charge have been really good as well, players like Joe Aribo, Ryan Kent and Ianis Hagi are becoming key members of the squad and posing huge threats in attack and if the club can have a good transfer window, then supporters will be hopeful that he can bring some silverware to Ibrox.
