Last night, Steven Gerrard took his Gers away to Croatia, where they faced Osijek in the Europa League 2nd round playoff and he produced a tactical masterclass. Stevie G’s boys came away 1-0 winners following an Alfredo Morelos goal, giving the Bluenoses their first away win in Europe in the years.

Whilst speaking to Rangers TV after the game, the ex-Liverpool and England captain gave his thoughts on the performance and the fans are in awe of him. It’s clear for all to see that Gerrard has a superb knowledge of the game and the way he summarised the performance was top-class. Gerrard will be making a lot of Glaswegians very happy at the moment and if he can carry on making his team tough to beat then they’ll go far.
The Ibrox faithful are now just 90 minutes away from a third-round playoff that will see them face either Maribor or Chikhura Sachkhere in a straight shootout for a place in the Europa League group stages. Some fans will have been keeping an eye on the result of the other tie, in which Chikhura and Maribor played out at 0-0 draw, giving Maribor the edge in the tie for the return leg, playing in front of their own fans with no deficit to claw back.
