Gerrard helped the Reds to a 3-2 win on the day, but the manager emerged from the tunnel on 80 minutes wearing a Rangers shirt as 30,000 supporters broke out in applause.

Prior to that, Gerrard was being booed by the light Blues fans while wearing the Liverpool shirt, and the former midfielder admitted that it was nice to sport the shirt of the club that he manages.

 

He told the club's official website: "It was fantastic, I think they booed me in a red shirt and then they got behind me when I came on in blue.

“It was a nice touch obviously with my connection here now at Rangers I’m very proud to be the manager and I think it is only right for them to see me in a blue shirt."

It was a nice day for the Rangers manager and all involved, but it's back to the serious stuff for Gerrard now.

Gerrard's side sit top of the Scottish Premiership, two points above Celtic. Their form has been nothing short of exceptional since losing to the Hoops on September 1, and the Ibrox boss will be desperate to keep this run going for as long as possible.
