Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed that he is eager to win more domestic titles next season than just the Scottish Premiership.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the former Liverpool captain talked about his goals and ambitions for next season with the Glasgow giants, with Gerrard keen to retain the league title as well as win the Scottish League Cup and Scottish Cup, two pieces of silverware neither Rangers nor Celtic claimed this season.
Rangers claimed their first league title in over a decade in comfortable fashion this season, with the Gers still unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership with two games of the campaign left to play, but for Gerrard, he believes the club can achieve more next year.
The former England international said: “I’m as ambitious as anyone connected to this club. I want to try and get this club Champions League football, I want to defend the title with our life, and I want to put the cup thing right as it doesn’t sit well with me. I want to come back in pre-season with a fair chance of being successful, that’s all I ask for, and hopefully the board will support me, and we go again.”
TBR View: Domestic cups will be the logical next step for Gerrard’s dynasty with Rangers
For all intents and purposes, the 2020/21 season has been a successful one for Rangers. They claimed their 55th league title, and their run in the UEFA Europa League showed that teams for Scotland have what it takes to play in Europe and to make deep runs into competitions, yet the lack of a domestic cup is something that will torment Gerrard given the circumstances this year.
The opportunity was there to not only snatch just the title from Celtic, but also the League Cup and Scottish Cup given just how dominant Rangers have been this season, but for Gerrard, this will likely only serve as motivation for next year, which could be another successful one for the blue half of Glasgow.
