Rangers fans back Ibrox icon's emotional title claims as Gers close in on 55

Rangers icon Ally McCoist has admitted that he thinks Steven Gerrard will be ‘surprised’ at the outpouring of emotion from Gers fans if they clinch the title this season – and comments from fans on Twitter show exactly what Super means.

The Gers look almost certain to end a decade-long wait to bring the title back to Ibrox and make it 55 Scottish league championships – and the club’s all-time record scorer believes Gerrard will be stunned at just how many people are ‘affected’ by it.

McCoist is confident Gerrard will feel like he’s in the best job in the world right now but thinks that in six weeks’ time it will be even better for the Liverpool icon.

“He’ll think he’s in the biggest job on the planet right now, McCoist said [TalkSPORT].

“There’s no doubt about it. I’m telling you right now that he will be thinking he’s in the biggest and best job on the planet.

“He’s probably six weeks away from – if he didn’t realise – he’s hopefully six weeks away from realising the effect he’s going to have on so many people and it’s going to be unbelievable.

“I hope Steven is going to reach that position and I’ll bet that even he will be surprised at the effect it’s going to have on so many people if and when they cross that line.”

Fans on Twitter almost unanimously agreed with McCoist’s sentiments and gave a little insight of their own into how much winning 55 will mean this season after the tribulations of the last decade.

With Gerrard’s side sitting 21 points clear at the top of the table with 15 games left, fans are starting to get excited – with one claiming Gerrard will becme an Ibrox “God” by winning the title.
