Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has taken part in the Kevin Thomson Academy challenge where challengers are expected to play the ball off a wall with alternating feet at least 50 times.

Launched by former Rangers midfielder Thommo, the Rangers youth coach launched the social media challenge for youth players as football is locked down across Europe.

Nominating Ibrox gaffer Steven Gerrard – who has 8.7m followers on his Instagram account – Stevie G showed he’s still got it by nailing the challenge in his back garden.

The challenge – which is considerably harder than what Steven Gerrard makes it look – has been adopted by numerous players over the last few weeks.


It was even picked up by Ibrox youth player Umaro Balde who is the latest Rangers representative to complete the challenge.

Those who complete it are asked to tag a few mates to try it out themselves with Steven Gerrard tagging a trio of Premier League icons.

Amongst them were former Liverpool teammates Jamie Redknapp and Jamie Carragher. The Gers gaffer also tagged Manchester United legend Gary Neville.
