Former Liverpool captain and club legend Steven Gerrard has been appointed as the new manager of Rangers, with a big task of ending Celtic’s dominance of the Scottish league.
The 37-year-old who has previously only worked with Liverpool’s Under-18s, takes the helm of the giant club which has fallen on hard times in the past decade despite winning a record 54 Scottish titles.
Although, there are heavy speculations that Gerrard is putting his chances of becoming next Liverpool’s manager in jeopardy by the move but Rangers legend Terry Butcher salutes Gerrard for the initiative.
According to Mirror Sports, ex-Ipswich and England star Butcher said: “It’s sink or swim in many aspects. Going to
Rangers as a player is difficult. Going to Rangers as a manager is extremely difficult.
“It’s a very brave decision. I think Chris Sutton said that if he doesn’t do well, he might not get a shot at Liverpool, and that’s what he really wants” the source disclosed.
“You have to test yourself and there’s no bigger test than being at Rangers.
“If they were equal, it would still be a massive job. If they brought in Stevie, then it might edge Rangers ahead. But they are not equal. They are a long way apart. If Celtic move further ahead, if they try to buy like they are planning this summer, then it will be even harder because they are already a long way ahead of Rangers.
