FORMER Liverpool and Fulham star Danny Murphy believes Steven Gerrard would likely be the best player on the pitch if he were to pull on his boots against Celtic on Sunday.
Murphy played alongside Gerrard during his career and made it clear his old team-mate would likely score the winner at Celtic Park given the chance.
Gerrard took over the Ibrox hot seat in the summer with many believing he was the man to bring silverware to the club this season, but it hasn’t panned out like that and we get the feeling Murphy’s comments would be the same.
“Steven Gerrard would walk into the Rangers team now and boss it.” 🔥
“If he played vs #CelticFC, it wouldn’t surprise me if he got the winner.” ⚽️

It’s so easy to make sweeping statements like this when there’s no chance of them happening. Gerrard was a great player in his day but now after hanging up his boots, it’s ridiculous and a bit insulting to both sets of players Murphy has spotted this nonsense.
We’ve seen world cup stars and Premier League pretenders come up here in recent years and do absolutely nothing. Gerrard has a lot in common with these guys although his failings have come trackside.
