Rangers legend Barry Ferguson spoke exclusively to the Daily Record, and insisted that Gers fans need to have more perspective when judging Steven Gerrard this early on in his tenure at Ibrox.
The Glasgow giants have made a fairly inconsistent start to their 2018/19 campaign, but they still sit just five points of league leaders Hearts with a game in hand, and have a chance of qualifying from their Europa League group.
Rangers clearly haven't been anywhere near their best in recent weeks, however, with disappointing results both domestically and on the continent threatening to jeopardise their chances of winning a trophy this season.
Ferguson, though, insisted that Gerrard deserves credit for the job that he has done at Ibrox, sharing something that he has to keep reminding the Rangers fans, when speaking exclusively to the Daily Record:
"I accept the performances haven’t been great in the last month but we’re in the second week of November and people are coming out with silly comments. I’ve had people coming up to me saying ‘What’s going on with Rangers?’ I have to tell them to calm down and remind them that last month Steven Gerrard was being praised for breaking European records."
Next up for Rangers is a home game against Motherwell on Sunday, and Gerrard will be desperate for his side to win the match, as they look to keep the pressure up on this above them in the table.
