Rangers manager Steven Gerrard had admitted it is “impossible” not to realise how close to the title the Light Blues are – but insists he needs to keep his stars focused on getting over the line
The Gers sit 21 points ahead of Celtic with 14 games left after today’s 1-1 draw with Motherwell and the Gers boss implored his players to “stay calm” if things don’t go their way.
With the Gers on the brink of their first title in a decade, the magnitude of the coming months isn’t lost on Gerrard.
“It’s impossible not to realise where we are as a group and what’s at stake,” Gerrard said [Not The Old Firm]
“But it’s important that we stay focused and don’t get ahead of ourselves and stay focused on each challenge.
“That’s where we are trying to keep the boys in terms of their thinking and the preparation. After a fantastic win no-one’s getting too high and if we have a bump or don’t get the result we want it’s important to stay calm.”
Rangers can really push on and make huge strides towards the title in the coming weeks, and hopefully it can be wrapped up before the Gers head to Celtic Park later in the season.
The thought of Neil Lennon’s deposed champions having to give the Gers a guard of honour is the perfect end to what has been a season few will forget.
