Redknapp labels Rangers a club in ‘decline’ and ‘lucky’ to have Gerrard

Steven Gerrard will officially begin his first managerial job tomorrow when he starts his role as boss of Scottish giants Rangers.

The former Liverpool captain has already declared just how excited and motivated he is to get started with the Glasgow club.

However, one of the most experienced coaches in Premier League history, Harry Redknapp has declared that the 54 time Scottish Champions are a club in decline and that they should be grateful to be have a coach of Gerrard’s ability, despite the 38-year-old’s inexperience.

“They are lucky to be getting someone of his standard at this particular time for where the club is,” he told BBC Scotland.

“It’s a great football club but it’s been in decline, and hopefully he can go in there and turn it around.

“If he can challenge Celtic and let them know they’re at their coat tails and they’re trying to be back at the top again, it would be a fantastic job for him.”

The former Liverpool captain has a massive task on his hands to wrestle back supremacy in Glasgow from his former manager at Liverpool Brendan Rodgers, who’s Celtic side have won an unprecedented two domestic trebles on the trot.
