Rangers fans continue to call for the head of manager Giovanni van Bronckhorst but some are plunging extra low depths by suggesting Steven Gerrard should return to the club.

Dutch coach Gio is under mounting pressure following the 2-1 defeat to St Johnstone which leaves the Gers seven points adrift of Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race.

That result means Rangers have picked up only four points from their last nine, with a victory over Aberdeen sandwiched between the Saints result and a woeful draw with Livingston.

Rangers have not played well all season long and – despite disruption with injuries – Rangers fans are struggling to vibe with whatever it is Giovanni van Bronckhorst is trying to do on the pitch.

There is no discernible style at times and Rangers fans are only taking a break from the boos and criticism to yawn between what is proving an uninspired, dysfunctional and unwelcome approach amongst the fans.

Things need to change and whilst Giovanni van Bronckhorst insists on driving home his 4-3-3 sideways-passing, cross-heavy, turgid football then the destination is surely bound for the Ibrox exit door.

Rangers would be mad to hire Steven Gerrard to replace Giovanni van Bronckhorst

Steven Gerrard might be an attractive choice for many; the Liverpool legend built the bulk of this squad, delivered 55 and had a stellar record against Celtic, but there is some revisionism regarding his exit.

Rangers were left somewhat in the lurch by Steven Gerrard who jumped at a Premier League opportunity with Aston Villa and who has since been sacked following a run of poor results.

For Rangers to revisit the former Ibrox boss is a slap in the face to the supporters, to the players and to the club given the manner of the former England captain’s exit.

If Rangers do opt to oust Giovanni, then it has to be crystal clear that Steven Gerrard is a backwards step as the Ibrox side hope to move on from a dramatic year of euphoric highs and disappointing lows.

Meanwhile, Rangers fans have been discussing one South American coach as a potential replacement.
