Rangers hero Barry Ferguson reveals transfer business Steven Gerrard needs to catch Celtic | Football | Sport


That is the few of Rangers hero Barry Ferguson, who has praised the job that Gerrard has done in his first season in Glasgow.

Rangers will finish second in the Scottish Premiership table, and could make history when they face Kilmarnock on Sunday by winning all of their second-phase fixtures for the first time.

Ferguson told the Daily Record: “I truly believe if [Gerrard] gets his recruitment spot on this summer, with three or four quality additions, Rangers will start the season with a really strong chance of winning silverware.”

Gerrard joined Rangers last summer with the target of bridging the gap on rivals Celtic, and did just that but failed to stop the Hoops from winning an eighth-consecutive league title.

However, Ferguson is happy with the work Gerrard has done, and expects an even closer title challenge next season.

“I really enjoy listening to what he has to say and the way he conducts himself as the leader of the club,” Ferguson said of Gerrard.

“Gerrard might have spent his career at Liverpool but he seems to get what Rangers is all about.

“When he opens his mouth he talks with sense and honesty. He handles himself with a bit of class and style.

“That’s everything you could ever hope for in a manager of Rangers and it reminds me of the way things used to be when I was playing there.

“Gerrard sets the standards for the whole club to follow.

“In the space of 12 months he’s taken my old club to a great place.

“The team is playing out of its skin, the players are full of confidence and results are now exactly as you would expect them to be.”

Rangers take on Kilmarnock on Sunday as they look to win a seventh consecutive match since losing 2-1 to Celtic in March.

Ferguson added: “There’s a feeling of genuine excitement again around Ibrox and it’s hard to explain how much that means to the supporters.

“Gerrard has made Rangers feel like Rangers again and that’s the best tribute I can pay to the man.”
