Steven Gerrard has turned Rangers around over the past few months and after guiding the club to the groups stages of the UEFA Europa League this week, fans are rightfully praising him strongly on social media.
The 1-1 draw in Russia was the culmination of a long summer of football, a long summer of recruitment and a journey that started with “let’s go.”
The Liverpool icon has brought his winning brand to Glasgow and is intent on making his first steps in management a huge success.
There are bigger tests to come and tomorrow’s match against Celtic is one of them, but it’s undeniable that there’s a resurgence at Ibrox and Steven Gerrard is the cause of it.
The club now have the foundation to produce a fantastic season for supporters that they’ve been waiting on for a long time.
These supporters took to Twitter after Thursday’s result to share their thoughts on Gerrard’s reign so far…
From Pedro in a bush to Gerrard in the groups.
It's easy to dismiss the turnaround we've made due to how many matches we've played of late. No time to sit and consider very much at all.
Plenty of tests to come, but no one can deny it's a very strong start to build upon.

It’s an achievement, real and quantifiable. A milestone success in the bag that comes with financial benefit. Had we missed out in that last 9 man half hour we would still be feeling kinda positive and by qualifying there is not doubt. All aboard The Gerrard Express????⚪️????#watp

I’ve been to Elgin, Peterhead, Berwick and Ayr. Following Glasgow Rangers is my life. To make the Europa League group stage is a huge achievement from where we haven been.
Gerrard, thank you ????????

What Gerrard has done in such a short time is remarkable. His confidence in himself has rubbed off on the team and us fans and that is an incredible achievement after what we have been through the last few years.

What an achievement by Steven Gerrard to assemble a group of players and quality for the group stages in just under 3 months. Outstanding. Not the night to worry about the effect to the domestic campaign. Very very proud. Also praise to the board for funding this ???????????? watp

McGregor, Ejaria, Goldson and Katic were all outstanding today. 4 rounds of qualifying and getting through with 9 men is a fantastic achievement. This proves that we’ve come on leaps and bounds since Gerrard took over.
Bring on Sunday!????????
