Gerrard must sort discipline problem at Rangers to maintain title bid

Rangers have improved massively under Steven Gerrard this season. But their discipline problems could end up costing them.

Rangers fans have seen major improvements this season under new manager Steven Gerrard.

Their recent victory over Hearts saw the Gers climb to the top of the Scottish Premiership table – something they were not even close to last season.

And while it will be a difficult challenge maintaining their title bid with Celtic resurgent, Rangers fans are beginning to dream again after years of disappointment.

But there is one significant problem that Rangers need to iron out of their game as soon as possible.

 

Once again, Rangers picked up a red card as Scott Arfield was sent off for a challenge of Hearts goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal.

The Canadian winger was shown a red card with 18 minutes still left to play but the Gers managed to hold out for the win in the end.

But it could have cost them and this is becoming a recurring problem.

Arfield’s red card was Rangers’ fourth in the league this season and their fifth in all competitions.

After just 26 games this season, that is a worrying statistic and something that Gerrard needs to be addressing.

If Rangers are going to maintain their title bid throughout the season, they need to stop picking up red cards as it could prove costly by the end of the campaign.
