Rangers fans have been lavishing Gers manager Steven Gerrard with praise for comments he has made regarding “knocking all the 54’s” off the wall.
The Ibrox gaffer is the driving force behind Rangers’ transformation in recent seasons and was once again asked about the club’s inevitable title win this campaign.
Rangers could win the trophy this weekend and if not, the club will have the chance to secure it at Parkhead on March 21st.
Gerrard quite simply isn’t thinking about when his side are going to win the trophy, but rather that his team focus on getting the job done with title 55 coming whenever it comes.
“Well look the fans are the priority here and we totally understand and can relate to how they’re feeling at the moment,” said Gerrard [Rangers].
“We want them to really enjoy this time and really revel in the moment, of course the fireworks (against Livingston) were impressive for sure.
“It’s fantastic what’s happening at the moment and we need to enjoy every single day as they go by.
“The important thing for us as a group is to keep winning football matches and it will happen when it does.
“The most important thing is to get that trophy back, knock all the 54’s off the wall for 55 and add to the wonderful history at this football club.
“If it happens on Sunday or in April or May – I don’t care, as long as it happens.”
After ten long years the moment is imminent, and Gerrard’s comments have caught the eye of adoring Rangers fans.
The Ibrox club’s supporters toasted the Gers gaffer on Twitter as they too looked forward the moment everything is updated to include the latest title victory:
