Pat Nevin Hands Steven Gerrard Warning Ahead Of Potential Rangers Role

Former Chelsea star Pat Nevin has handed a warning to Steven Gerrard ahead of his possible appointment as the next Rangers manager. The 37-year-old is reportedly in advanced talks with the Gers over the head coach role but Nevin believes the Gerrard’s arrival could be ‘massively risky’ considering the previous experience of John Barnes at Celtic.

Speaking on BBC Sport, he said: "You look at John Barnes at Celtic and it didn't work - a guy who was brought in when the backing didn't seem to be there. Everyone looks back at that as a nightmare and disaster. If you look back at the figures, it wasn't as bad as people remember it was. It just shows you what happens if you get on the wrong side of what is expected of you here. And, if you are Steven Gerrard at Rangers, you are expected to beat Celtic in the league."

The Colombia marksman was one of the fix foreign imports brought by ex-boss Pedro Caixinha, who had planned to close the gap on perennial champions Celtic.


Whilst the likes of Carlos Pena, Eduardo Herrera, and Fabio Cardoso have failed to hit the heights at the Ibrox Stadium, Morelos’ performances have been a particular delight, and this recently earned a new contract at the club. Speaking to the Glasgow Evening Times, Stein believes that the 21-year-old has become a key player in the Gers’ ranks, and fancies the club commanding a big fee for a future sale.

Steven Thompson sees endless problems at Rangers

Former Rangers frontman Steven Thompson sees 'endless problems' at the Ibrox Stadium, after his former club suffered back-to-back defeat in the Scottish Premiership. The Glasgow-based club lost 2-0 at home Hamilton Academical last weekend, and this has been followed with a 2-1 defeat at Dundee on Friday night. Rangers created several goal-scoring opportunities prior to half-time, but they were outsmarted by a Mark O'Hara brace on either side of Josh Windass' opener. Following the game, Thompson was critical about the Rangers' performance as they suffered successive defeats against clubs in the bottom-six of the table.

The 39-year-old also suggested that the Rangers are lacking direction going forward, and their problems seem endless, he said: "I can't remember them losing back-to-back games against bottom-six teams before. Yes, they created opportunities, yes, they should have taken them, but they didn't."
