Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has admitted that he’ll live with the regret of failing to win the title with Liverpool for the rest of his life after his slip against Chelsea effectively killed their title hopes in 2014 as Man City went on the lift the league.
Gerrard’s slip allowed Chelsea to open the scoring on their way to a 2-0 win at Anfield and Gerrard knows the Reds missed a “fantastic opportunity” to lift their first league title in a generation.
The Rangers boss takes “full responsibility” for his part in stopping Liverpool’s title surge but has a chance to right the wrongs a little if he can lead the Gers to title 55.
“We missed a fantastic opportunity,” Gerrard told BT Sport’s What I Wore.
“‘I obviously take full responsibility for the part I played in it for sure. But unfortunately, over the course of the whole 38 games, we fell short at the end. And that’s a regret I’ve got to live with for the rest of my life.”
Liverpool have still yet to get their hands on the league title since Gerrard left Anfield but they could finally get their hands on the trophy this season as they sit eight points clear at the top of the table.
If Gerrard can lift the title at Ibrox and Liverpool secure the Premier League, there will be some party at the Gerrard residence o the outskirts of Liverpool.
Despite his slip, the Anfield side probably have Gerrard to thank for most of their recent honours after the midfielder was a driving force for the Reds during his playing career.
