Some Glasgow Rangers fans were worried after reading the opening paragraph of an open letter penned by manager Steven Gerrard ahead of next week’s Old Firm derby.
The Gers’ status as Premiership champions was confirmed last Sunday after Celtic could only draw 0-0 with Dundee United. In the aftermath, thousands of fans took to the streets of Glasgow to celebrate the triumph, breaking lockdown regulations along the way, while there were even reports of public property being damaged (Sky News).
Ahead of the Old Firm derby next week, Gerrard penned an open letter to Gers fans to implore them to stay at home for the match. He started the letter by thanking fans for what they had done for him since he joined the club in 2018, writing: “Firstly, I want to place on record my thanks for everything you have done for me, my management team and my players since I arrived in Glasgow in May of 2018.”
Will Gerrard be at Rangers next season?
This worried plenty of fans initially, as they appeared to believe it was a goodbye letter. The piece was shared on Rangers’ official Twitter account, and these fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the letter from Gerrard below
“I saw “thanks for everything” and I nearly had a heart attack.”
“OMG got such a fright after reading that first paragraph…. don’t do that”
“Jeezo thought there was something wrong there”
“That first paragraph a thought aww naw that’s can’t be happening haha”
Thanks gaffer but please never do that again cause I thought you were leaving
“I think my heart stopped for a few seconds right there”
