Michael Higdon claims Steven Gerrard is the biggest signing in Scottish football history

Steven Gerrard shakes hands with Dave King as he is unveiled as the new manager of Rangers football Club at Ibrox Stadium on May 4, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rangers have a new manager in Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, and former Motherwell star Michael Higdon reckons he's the best thing to ever happen to Scottish football.

The buzz Steven Gerrard's appointment as Rangers manager generated is yet to completely fizzle out after his announcement a fortnight ago.

The Champions League-winning midfielder has no senior team managerial experience, but that hasn't stopped Light Blues faithful from dreaming big.

Next season, Gerrard will go toe-to-toe with his former boss at Liverpool Brendan Rodgers, who is 90 minutes away from setting another record of leading Celtic to consecutive domestic trebles.

It's a tough task ahead for the Reds legend, but former Motherwell striking sensation Michael Higdon believes his appointment will benefit Scottish football, and he claims he is the biggest signing in Scottish football history.

The Liverpool fan, however, has doubts over Gerrard's chances of hitting the ground running in the Rangers dugout.

“I think Gerrard’s the biggest signing in Scottish football history. I don’t know if he’ll succeed, it’s his first job," 34-year-old told The Scottish Sun.

“I don’t want to see him fall flat on his face. But it also wouldn’t surprise me. Neither would it surprise me if he did great. You just don’t know.

“He’ll give it all he can and if it’s not working then fair enough. But I think he will inspire that club. He’s that type of fella."

Gerrard is already working behind the scenes in order to ensure a smooth sailing when he officially kicks off his tenure next month, and has already overseen the signing of former Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield.

Should the former England international get full support from the Rangers board and make more quality recruitment during the summer transfer window, he has a chance of changing the fortunes of the Ibrox club.
