Sportswriter and broadcaster Graham Spiers has given his verdict on the news Steven Gerrard is in deep talks with Celtic’s Glasgow rivals.
The media man took to social media after watching Celtic hand out another hammering to the Ibrox club to express his dismay at what the Ibrox board are trying to do.
He wrote: ‘I was at Celtic Park today. This guy is ruthless and all-conquering in Scotland. Rangers plan to put an untested under 18s coach up against him next season. The sheer idiocy of it. It is staggering.’
Steven Gerrard has admitted he’s held talks with the Ibrox side with a view to becoming their manager and would be tasked with stopping ten in a row.
Rodgers and Gerrard were on the same side at Liverpool, if it hadn’t been for the midfielder’s famous slip, the Irishman may have won the EPL.
The move by The Rangers seems likes another PR stunt rather than a vialble candidate options.
As Graham puts it, it’s sheer idiocy.
