Former Celtic youngster Si Ferry thinks Steven Gerrard “may” have been sacked by Rangers last season had the campaign not stopped early as the footballer-turned-podcaster came up with his own alternate history.
Ferry thinks Gerrard got lucky as Rangers were in “freefall” when the season was curtailed due to Covid – with the Gers having lost two of their previous five league games.
With Rangers on the brink of winning the title, Ferry and countless other Celtic fans are doing everything they can to give themselves something to cling on to as their own side are engulfed in chaos saying: “A bit of luck as well because the season stopped, Rangers were in freefall before that,” Ferry said [The Go Radio Football Show]
“If the season had went on and they kept losing games and that gap had got bigger, Steven Gerrard may have been out of a job.
“It just shows you need that wee bit of luck in management as well, he’s taken full advantage of that, he’s went away and looked at where they went wrong.
“He’s come back and Rangers have been a totally different team to that one that got beat off Hamilton.”
While they may want to think Gerrard ‘may’ have been sacked last season, the reality is that he wasn’t and he’s ended Celtic’s hopes of winning a tenth title in a row.
That will eat away at them for a long time to come and there are almost certainly going to many more straws for them to grasp at over the coming months.
