Rangers boss Gerrard expecting ‘exciting’ Hibs clash

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is expecting tonight’s game against Hibs to be an exciting encounter due to both sides having attack minded philosophies.

Rangers go into the game at Easter Road at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, although their old firm rivals Celtic are just one point behind with a game in hand.

While Hibernian may be down in eighth in the table, they are in fact only seven points behind the Gers in what is one of the most open Scottish title races in years and speaking ahead of tonight’s game, Gerrard is expecting an exciting and attacking game of football.

“I think it is going to be a big challenge for us as they are a good team and they have got good players.’’ Gerrard told his pre-match press conference.

“They are an attacking team who like to pile men forward, and they play brave football, so it is an exciting one.

“I watched the game last season, and it was one of those crazy games where you just don’t know what is going on at both ends with both teams trying to win it going gung-ho.

“I wouldn’t mind scoring five again, but I wouldn’t want my team to concede five! I don’t predict it to be as similar as that but I do predict an attacking game and an exciting game as there are a lot of good footballers on the pitch, and I think the atmosphere will be intense.”
