Steven Gerrard is Rangers new Manager

He has signed a four year deal to be their next Gaffer. A huge gamble for him and he needs all the luck with it. However, the quality of Scottish football is so poor and he could have started his managerial career in one of the lower divisions in English Football instead. For example, there are many good managers that started in the lower leagues, Chris Hughton, Eddie Howe, Sean Dyche, etc. I wish Stevie G all the best with his new career and to be honest I don’t want him to manage Liverpool someday because a previous manager destroyed a championship winning team back in the day and you know who I am referring to.

  • I've been hugely impressed with how Stevie has managed the U18's and U19's this season.  He clearly developed a terrific team spirit among the lads but he also showed tactical awareness, changing his formations to suit the players he had available.  He also seemed to get his substitutions right.  All in all he looked like someione who could go on to manage at a high level.  Whether Rangers is the right move for him only time will tell but the club needs to give him the backing he requires and the time to give him the opportunity to show what he can do.

  • Whenever Gerrard has been at Liverpool, either as a player or manager, he's mostly been surrounded by people who adore or respect him. At Rangers he's going to get less leeway, results will do the talking, and I don't think the fans will allow him a lot of losses before Christmas, no mattter how big a name he is. He's shown he's got the tactical and motivational knowhow so in theory he shouldn't bomb but football is a funny game, a healthy portion of good fortune is also needed and sometimes it doesn't go your way, just look at when John Barnes went to manage Celtic. I wish Stevie the best of luck, I can't help feeling he's going to need it.

    • I agree with your last sentence. I think he's going into the spotlight to soon, Rangers is a big club with a big history and i think Gerrard is making a mistake here. I thought he would have been far better off learning his trade in the lower lge's in england first, making a name for himself, gain managerial knowledge and confidence in his abilities. There's a lot of pressure on him so early on in his managing career which is unnessesary but of course i wish him all the best.
