Rangers: Simon Jordan pours cold water on Gerrard success

Rangers: Simon Jordan pours cold water on Gerrard success - Rangers News

TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan has suggested Steven Gerrard is in a “very difficult situation” at Glasgow Rangers despite his success this term.

Jordan worried for Gerrard

The Gers have been fantastic this campaign. After 30 matches in the Premiership, they lead the table by 18 points (BBC), while they have lost just one game in all competitions (Sky Sports).

However, Jordan believes the boss must make sure his team does not lose momentum if he wants to avoid criticism. He explained (via Ibrox News):

“I don’t think it [Gerrard’s success] does anything for the league. There was a question about the framework of this which asked: ‘Does it increase the credibility of the league?’

“No, not really as it only has two teams with any real meaning about them, at this particular time.

“Ultimately, he has to keep that momentum going, anything other than that for Gerrard it’ll be: ‘his team is declining.’

“So he’s in a very difficult situation because he has now moved the Celtic domination out of the way.”

Harsh

Jordan does make an interesting point. As we have seen in the Premier League with Liverpool, following up a season of almost unprecedented domination is tricky. The Gers are unlikely to win the league title without any sort of challenge on a regular basis in the future.

However, as long as Gerrard continues to put his side in a position to lift silverware, he will be doing a good job at Ibrox. In regards to the credibility of the league, Rangers are at least making a decent impression in the Europa League – after winning 4-3 away at Antwerp in their round of 32 first leg, they are within touching distance of the next stage of the competition. It is not Gerrard’s job to make the Scottish top tier more competitive – all he can do is concentrate on the task at hand.
