Glasgow Rangers chairman Dave King has issued a rallying cry to supporters hailing the team's progress this season under Steven Gerrard.

Rangers are on course to finish in second place for the first time since their promotion to the top flight.

He is hopeful the fans at Ibrox will soon have trophies to cheer, although Rangers' chances have passed for this season.

 

Praising Gerrard's team, King believes they are not far off from challenging more forcefully.

It is his comment that Rangers are close to 'dominating' once again which has really caught the eye.

King is quoted by STV: "It was never going to be easy and it is extremely gratifying to have witnessed the progress that has been made over the last year.

"We are now within tangible reach of Rangers becoming the dominant force in Scottish football again.

"Much of the progress on the pitch can be attributed to Mark Allen, Steven Gerrard and their respective management teams. Turning to a young manager was a risk but it was one that Mark and the board felt we should take because of Steven Gerrard's football pedigree."

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.

The pressure is on Gerrard and Rangers to take another step forward next season.

Rivals Celtic are in transition as they look to appoint a new permanent manager in the summer.

There has been a mixed reaction to King's comments...
