Hearts started the season on fire but as they have slipped away in recent weeks, the Old Firm title race that many predicted before the campaign started has begun to take shape.
Steven Gerrard has returned optimism to Ibrox and has his Rangers side just two points behind Celtic, managed by his former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.
Whatever happens this season, it’s more of a long term project for the blue part of Glasgow and their fans will be hoping that Gerrard can be the man to oversee genuine progress at Ibrox.
The man himself has confirmed that he wants to stay at the club for a ‘very long time’, perhaps even longer than the four-year contract he signed with the club before the season begun.
Speaking at the Rangers AGM, Gerrard said: “I can assure everyone that we’ll give every bit of time and effort we’ve got to continue moving the club forward on the pitch and we’ll continue trying to attract the best players possible to help bring success back to this incredible club.
“I feel I’m in such a blessed position to be here as manager. I hope I stay here for a very long time and we share some really good times together.”
Gerrard’s loyalty to Liverpool made him an icon at Anfield and if he does something similar with Rangers and puts them back to the top of Scottish football again, he will earn similar status.
