Why leave sevco when they have qualifying games in the CL next season I hear you ask? Well back in December the club announced £15.9million losses in their annual accounts and needed to raise up to £24million by the end of next season to fill a black hole in their finances. Managing director Robertson admitted the Ibrox boss will be forced to let some of his key men go in a bid to balance the books this summer. So do think Gerrard is going to go into the CL and a new season against Celtic, who have been given a £40M war chest for the new Manager to rebuild, with a weakened team and potentially lose his current status as the Messiah?, THE ANSWER IS NO. He will quit while the going is good, he is smart.

Possible, when Scotland put you out, Gareth could walk, but he's too young for that gig IMO.

there's no way Gerrard will walk away from Rangers after only losing a league title because of a points deduction, he'll be keen to put that right, remember as a player Gerrard never won the league with Liverpool either
Report badjoe March 8, 2021 8:20 PM GMT
The English media is going bananas over 'how well he has done up here', this time last year the fans were calling for him to go, he has so far won 1 domestic trophy out a possible 9, whilst stretching sevco's finances to the limit by holding the board to ransom over selling players, the fallout from this is yet to come. Your average sevco fan is too thick to see this.

Scotland still well behind the black ball as far as good squads look far into the future .    not sure how long they have missed out Europe C.L.   but thats next step after this win .. a huge task ahead  for all Scottish teams   .. never the less .. thats where the country is Now ..

Well that did not go well, not many would have predicted he would have accepted an English Premiership relegation battle over a SPL title shootout.  Both Celtic and Rangers fans should now realise that the SPL is now a stepping stone to mediocracy into the EPL. Celtic and Rangers lost managers to middle rate EPL teams with smaller fan bases but larger revenue streams, a sad indictment for the SPL.

Bad move for Gerrard. What is the very best he can achieve there with their finances ? 9th or 10th but that is pretty much what they achieved last season under Smith. To get higher in the league like top 4 they would need to spend another 400million and the owners aren't the same as the PIF that bought Newcastle.
Report LOU MACARIS TARTAN B November 11, 2021 1:09 PM GMT
Oh don't you know?  It's nothing to do whatsoever with the players who are actually on the pitch kicking the ball.  Oh no, Gerrard is this great manager (he won the league in a two horse race so he must be!) so therefore if you've got a good manager he could take over the 'Dog & Duck' pub team and they'd win the Premiership.  The fact the players wouldn't be good enough has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Villa are a mid table side roughly so give him a year with the same players and they'll probably end up ........... mid table!
Report cool_hand_luke November 11, 2021 1:30 PM GMT
Villa were a mid table team with Grealish, they are a bottom 6 without. Gerard has to be everything and more to maintain that team in the top half of the premiership without spending significantly.

Of the 3 epl jobs that became available I would say Villa is the most attractive.  Less pressure/media focus than the toon job.  Less peril/danger of going down than the canaries job.  I think Villa have a decent squad add a bit more creativity in the middle of the park and a new LB top 8 IMO

I think he did a very good job at Rangers. Stopping 10 in a row, generating over £30m in Euro revenues over the last 2 seasons for a club in a very bad financial situation and Rangers played a major role in improving Scotland's club co-efficient meaning that the champs are likely to get an automatic CL group stage place next season. If Rangers win the league that will be more revenues that they badly need. To put it in context the SPL champs get something like £4m in TV money for winning the league. Euro football is where the money is for Scottish clubs.

His prime targets were winning the league and doing well in Europe and he did both.

You're much closer to the truth than even you know differentdrum.  Not only did Celtic hand them the title on a plate by shooting themselves repeatedly in the foot throughout the season every other club underperformed individually, and all in the same season.  It was a Leicester City type league win - totally out of the blue and never ever to be repeated.  Actually, to be more accurate, it was a Blackburn Rovers type of league win - once in a lifetime followed by an exodus of talent and finance.

Us winning the league by a country mile and stopping 10 in a row* was a bitter pill for celtic and their fans to swallow and they still haven't got over it.

We say 10 in a row but it was really nine and three quarters as they were gifted a title that was there to be won.
