Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has opened up on his first year in charge at Ibrox and admitted that he’s “loved every minute” of it.
Gerrard was appointed as Gers boss 12 months ago today and has had an up-and-down time in his first spell as a manager.
“I’ve loved every minute of it. It’s obviously been a journey of highs and lows, just like I expected. It always is whether you are a player, a coach or a manager,”
“It was obviously a huge job and a huge challenge. I think there’s been progress made in certain areas.
“I’ll also admit we’ve fallen short in certain areas as well. But now as I sit here, one year in the job, I’m a lot more confident.”
Gerrard’s side have already secured a second-place finish in the Premiership and done well to reach the Europa League group stage in his first season in charge.
Pushing on and closing the gap to Celtic next season is imperative for Rangers as their bitter rivals look to seal an eighth title in a row today.
After 12 months in charge, there’s good reason to be optimistic about Gerrard’s reign and look forward to the Light Blues finally getting their hands on some silverware.
