Former Rangers manager Steven Gerrard secured his second consecutive win in charge of Aston Villa as the English side defeated Crystal Palace 2-1.
This was Gerrard’s second game in charge of Villa since his controversial move to the Birmingham club and he’s made a big impact so far.
Goals from Matt Targett and John McGinn had Villa 2-0 up with four minutes remaining.
A late goal from Palace’s Marc Guehi made Gerrard and his side sweat out the final moments, but they managed to hold on for all three points.
With the Rangers fanbase currently split regarding the former manager’s decision to move on, with some wishing him well and others hoping his new venture will fail, no Bear should forget what he did with our club.
What no Rangers supporter can contest is the financial disparity between the two teams.
This gulf was likely one of the key factors behind Gerrard’s decision to leave Rangers and continue his fledgling managerial career south of the border.
Regardless of this, his aim when he moved down south was to win football games and establish himself in one of the finest leagues in the world.
The Englishman is doing a decent job of that so far.
