You’d be hard pressed to find someone more popular amongst Rangers fans than Steven Gerrard. Since becoming manager in the summer, the Englishman has done everything right.
In the last few weeks, in particular, his team have really come of age, and they’re currently sitting pretty at the top of the Scottish top flight.
We got there, of course, by winning against Hearts at the weekend, and ahead of our next game with Aberdeen, Gerrard has been discussing the weekend tie. More specifically, he’s been discussing the involvement that the fans had, and what he’s had to say is sure to please supporters.
As per the official Rangers Twitter, Gerrard described the fans as superb, before stating that it was like having another player on the pitch.
????️SG: It was more like 13 men on Sunday not 12, as our fans were superb.

The comments come following Hearts manager Craig Levein’s suggestion, as per the BBC, that Rangers played with 12 men instead of the usual 11, owing to the supposed poor performance from the referee.
Clearly, Gerrard isn’t holding too much of a grudge against Levein for his comments, and he’s instead using them to pay tribute to the Rangers fans that have treated him so well over the last few months.
The win has only encouraged us more to support our team, and we’re hoping that our fine form continues for a while yet. Gerrard clearly appreciates the support that he and his team have been getting.
