Many Glasgow Rangers fans have been left erupting as some comments emerged from Steven Gerrard.
Speaking in his pre-game press conference ahead of the match at home to Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon, the English manager has now claimed that the club need to ‘spend big money’ in transfer windows in order to be able to compete, citing that in the last two windows they ‘haven’t spent a penny’.
Will Gerrard stay at Rangers?
This comes after the Light Blues lost 1-0 away at Sparta Prague in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night, after losing their opening game 2-0 at home to Lyon in the competition (BBC Sport).
They have also drawn and lost a match in the SPFL already as well, and so question marks have been raised over their performances this season compared to last.
Nonetheless, several Light Blues seemed to be taken back by his subtle dig at the board.
Rangers fans on Gerrard comments
These Gers supporters erupted as the comments were shared on Twitter:
“That’s a statement and a half”
“First time we’ve heard him express his disappointment at the transfer business we have done. Sounded like a wee dig at the board.”
“Is that a dig at the board for us not spending any money?”
“The board won’t be too happy with that last comment, but he’s correct.”
“Steven Gerrard making it clear to EVERYONE you need to spend money to improve and challenge in European competitions. Money he hasn’t been given in the last 2 transfer windows so why should we expect this team to keep doing it, year after year?”
“2 poor transfer windows. Not spent a penny. Manager having a dig at the board here?”
