Steven Gerrard has given a humbling response when asked if Rangers can finally overtake their main rivals to lift the Scottish Premier League.

A lot is expected from Gerrard’s first season as manager at Rangers football club and theres no doubt that many of us would like him to be a huge success, maybe with the exception for Celtic fans..

And the former England international is his humble self it seems . When asked whether he can guide Rangers to the Scottish league title, Gerrard replied:

“It’s a difficult question to ­answer as it’s a long season and this is just the start,” he said to the Telegraph.

“We made a lot of changes for a reason – we felt the squad needed that amount of ­surgery to help it compete.

“We don’t want to put any targets or added pressure on us than is ­already on us at the moment. All I’ve said to [the players] is just to ­focus on each game at a time.

“The idea is to make the squad as strong as possible in each position and have variety in every position, so we have the quality to compete across the whole season.

“But we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. The important thing is to focus on Aberdeen. Every fan, every pundit, every ­media guy will have his opinion on where Rangers are at the minute. I don’t think we need to get involved in that. We have confidence and ­belief in ourselves.

“We’re trying to create a culture, a winning mentality, in the dressing room which helps us grow stronger – but it will take time.”

Things certainly do seem to be looking up for Rangers Football Club.
