The Rangers players will have been making life difficult for Steven Gerrard this summer as they finished their training camp in Spain.
The new manager took his players to Andalusia for 10 days to get an idea of who his squad were and what they were capable off, in order to help him identify where he needs to make additions, let go of players who are deemed surplus to requirements and get the team playing the way he wants them to.
Gerrard has revealed that he still has areas of concern with his squad and has also stated that he will need to let a number of the current group go, but has admitted to the Daily Record that he will have some tough decisions to make.
“I’m aware that if we get the areas sorted out that we feel need sorted it will make the squad too big,” he told the Daily Record.
“We will have to edge a few out and be honest with people and say to them that maybe they are not going to get the game time they want.
“That is football at this time of year and all the players are aware of that. But they are making it very tough because training has been very intense, it has been quality and everyone is pushing to stay here, which is a good thing.”
The Rangers fans in the Tavern will be pleased to hear that all the players have started to lift their standards and have been working hard under Gerrard, however, they will know that the new manager will have a difficult couple of decisions to make over the course of this summer.
