Rangers boss Steven Gerrard spoke to reporters yesterday, and suggested that his current squad has more strength in depth than it ever has since he took over at Ibrox in the summer of 2018, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times.

The Gers seem to be in a great position from which to push Celtic all the way this season, having won their opening two league games, as well as being on the verge of qualifying for the Europa League.

 

Gerrard has made nine new signings for Rangers this summer, and there is real competition for places at Ibrox this season.

The Gers boss spoke to reporters, and admitted it is a luxury that he hasn't experienced previously during his time in charge of the Glasgow giants, as quoted by the Glasgow Evening Times:

“I’ve never had this feeling where there are four or five players outside the squad of 18 who are giving me daggers, never mind the seven who are not in the 11. But I welcome it and the message to the players is the only way we can have a positive end to the season is if everyone contributes."

Rangers take a 4-2 lead from their first-leg clash against FC Midtjylland into the second-leg Europa League tie at Ibrox tonight.

Gerrard's men then play East Fife in the League Cup on Sunday, and it would be no surprise to see Rangers field two completely different teams for their two upcoming games.
