Despite our recent struggles, we’re sure that most Rangers fans would agree that Steven Gerrard has done a good job at the helm. The former Liverpool man has been able to battle past more than a few difficult moments, and that should bode well for the future, and significantly, we’ve been able to come out the other side.

The jury, of course, is still out on his long-term prospects, but former ‘Gers manager Ally McCoist has been impressed by what he’s seen.

According to The Herald, McCoist said: “I think he’s handled himself well. He is a clever individual who played at the top level and knows how to handle the media side of things as well”.

He added: “If Rangers can continue to show the consistency they have at home and start being a bit more consistent away from home, they will be alright”.

Gerrard’s run at Rangers was always going to be a process. He’s a new manager, and he needs to continue to train and work at his craft. Still, the early signs have been very good indeed.

His off the field persona, as has become clear in the media, has been great – as McCoist noted – and that’s been crucial to our recovery. He’s not a man to go easy on anyone, his players included, and that’s certainly helped build the confidence back into his squad.

Consistency is, of course, key – and the foundations are there to make that happen. Gerrard will know that, and he’ll be working hard to make that right.

We’re hoping that another win this week, this time in Europe, could give us the perfect foundations from which to continue to build both domestically and continentally.
