Rangers: Hiring Steven Gerrard would be ‘madness’

Rangers: Hiring Steven Gerrard would be ‘madness’ -Rangers News

Scottish football journalist Bill Young has claimed that Glasgow Rangers supporters calling for the club to hire Steven Gerrard is ‘madness’.

The Lowdown: Van Bronckhorst on the brink

It has been reported that Giovanni van Bronckhorst is ‘likely’ to get the sack at Ibrox during the break for the World Cup in Qatar.

A poor run of results continued with a 2-1 defeat at St. Johnstone in the Premiership on Sunday, and the upcoming break presents an optimum time for the club to change manager ahead of the domestic season resuming in mid-December.

Van Bronckhorst’s predecessor Steven Gerrard is currently the favourite to replace the Dutchman, and he is available at the moment after being sacked by Aston Villa last month.

The Latest: ‘Madness’

Taking to Twitter on Monday, Young has claimed that Rangers fans calling for Gerrard’s return is ‘madness’, after previous disputes in and around the club.

The reporter stated: “I’m hearing more and more Rangers fans calling for the return of Steven Gerrard, that really is a special kind of madness. Let’s not forget the section that was calling for his head before he went and the rumours of rows with the board over spending. Here till his next big offer?”

The Verdict: Forgive and forget

There may have been disputes with Gerrard and the board, and there was some backlash after him leaving the Light Blues midway through last season, but right now there do not seem to be many other better options for Rangers.

Of course, he helped them to win the league title in 2020/21, stopping bitter rivals Celtic from winning an unprecedented ten in a row, and the 42-year-old should be remembered for that achievement above all.

Gerrard also gave league debuts to the likes of Nathan Patterson and Joe Aribo, who have both since earned big moves to the Premier League, and also signed a number of top players like Ryan Kent and Connor Goldson, who are still playing in the first team.

The 42-year-old knows the club inside out, and if Van Bronckhorst loses his job over the next couple of weeks, then Gerrard should be given another chance at Ibrox.
