Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard believes his team are in a healthy position ahead of the second-half of the season, as they look to battle their fierce rivals Celtic for the Scottish title.
The former Liverpool midfielder will be hoping he can cap off an impressive maiden season in management, by guiding Rangers to a first league title win since 2011. The Old Firm clubs are currently neck and neck at the top of the table, with 42 points each, although Celtic do have a game in hand.
Gerrard believes his side are still very much learning and developing, as he looks for more consistency during the second half of his first year in charge.
“In terms of the league we are obviously in a healthy position on the back of a really important Old Firm win, but looking back and analysing it there are still areas where we can get better and we can improve.’’ Gerrard told Rangers TV.
”We have dropped silly points at times and we have had a few bumps and set-backs along the way, which I expected and I predicted, but moving forward the less of them the better.
“Look, it’s all to play for. The important thing for us is to focus on the next three points but I am not going to sit here and lie. We have got targets in-house that we all want to go and achieve and that’s the way it should be at a big club.”
Rangers will be looking to build on their important 1-0 victory over Celtic at Ibrox last month as they prepare for an away trip at Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Cup 4th Round this Friday, before a tricky league fixture away at Steve Clarke’s high flying Kilmarnock.
