Steven Gerrard’s tactical mistakes have cost Rangers this season

Steven Gerrard’s tactical mistakes have cost Rangers this season

Rangers have been very impressive over the past month or so as they continue to hunt down the title and progression in Europe. 

The Bluenoses got off to a very disappointing start in the Scottish Premiership as they find themselves floating adrift in the race for the title. However, they now appear to be back on track and are building up ahead of steam, but they’ll be desperate not to make any more silly mistakes from here on in.

Worryingly, the Liverpool legend has struggled for answers at times and has made a number of debatable managerial decisions this season, which has cost them dearly.

With that being said, here’s a look at TWO of Gerrard’s biggest blunders…

Failure to make the most of promising positions

Steven Gerrard would have set his sights on challenging for the Scottish Premiership title in his first season in charge in Scotland. However, they didn’t exactly set the league alight after a disappointing opening seven games, with just three wins on the board and very little to show.

Indeed, the Bluenoses could be sitting at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at this moment in time if they managed to ensure consistency towards the start of the campaign, but instead they’re continuously chasing down the teams above them with the pressure firmly on themselves.

Tactical approach

Steven Gerrard has turned to a number of different formations and combinations so far this season, which hasn’t always worked out for the Bluenoses. Indeed, the Rangers boss has opted for one up top, two up top and an attacking line of three, which just goes to show that he’s playing for the occasion rather than a settled lineup.

And, the first Old Firm clash of the season was a perfect example of this as the 38-year-old set his side up negatively against the Hoops, with the midfield sitting deep and two strikers struggling for service up top.
