Rangers icon Brian Laudrup believes the style of play implemented at Ibrox by Steven Gerrard will have clubs across Europe sitting up and taking notice – and insists that a number of the Gers star could “fit in just about anywhere.”
The Light Blues have been scintillating, both domestically and in Europe, and Laudrup thinks that is a “real asset” for Gerrard’s side and can help “promote” the Gers.
With Rangers more than holding their own in Europe, Laudrup thinks that even clubs in the “big five leagues” will be taking a closer look at the Gers and how they go about their business.
“The style of play introduced by Gerrard really helps to promote the quality,” Laudrup told the Daily Mail.
“As a team, they have produced modern, attractive, attacking football in the Europa League.
“Clubs across Europe would say about Rangers: ‘They play the right kind of football. That’s how we like to play.’
“Sporting directors in the big five leagues will believe that a number of the Ibrox players could fit in just about everywhere. It’s a real asset.”
The Gers face Benfica on Thursday night and could take a massive step towards qualification for the knockout rounds of the Europa League with a good result.
Despite going into the group as the third seeds, Rangers have very much looked at ease in the competition this season and continue to build on the excellent work done by Gerrard and his staff.
While teams from the ‘big five leagues’ may take notice of what the Gers are doing, hopefully, they keep their chequebooks tucked away until next summer.
