Steven Gerrard is determined to win something for Glasgow Rangers next season and is trying his best to do everything he can to turn things around.
He has improved so much at the Hummel Training Centre and brought in top coaches and staff to help injured players recover faster and get fitter.
If Gerrard fails to win anything with Rangers next year, it will not be for any lack of effort on his part.
It is hoped that with the Gers boss’ personal touch being added to midfield ace Glen Kamara, his game can further improve onto the next level.
On 13 July 2017, Kamara signed a two-year deal with Dundee and on his debut against Raith Rovers in a cup game he was man of the match.
Rangers manager Gerrard head-hunted Kamara from an extremely poor Dundee side, who were relegated last year, but he noticed his presence in that inferior team.
The Liverpool legend seemingly wants to tweak the star’s position in midfield to try and add goals to his all-round game for next season.
Kamara was an immediate success in the Rangers first team and kept Ross McCrorie out of the starting XI, not an easy thing to do in a new team.
He joined Rangers in January for only £50,000 and was exceptional for the Glasgow giants during the second half of the season.
This week he was the top man against Bosnia and Liechtenstein in the two Finland wins. The local newspapers were raving about his progress since moving to Rangers.
The Gers player himself revealed personal coaching sessions from Gerrard have taken place in an effort to get more attacking output from him.
“Steven Gerrard has taught me a lot of things,” Kamara told the Daily Record.
“What I particularly like about him is if I make a mistake in the game, the next day he will come up to me and encourage me to do my best.
“He has helped me with personal training sessions and is currently teaching me to shoot more.
“Of course I can actually shoot, but just not anything as good as he can do!
“He was very good at that and goals were a big part of his game.
“The exercises he has done with me have been excellent and hopefully you will start to see the evidence of this next season.”
With Rangers relying so heavily on Alfredo Morelos, James Tavernier and Scott Arfield for goals, Gerrard wants others to contribute more avenues to the back of the opposition net.
Gerrard requires his team and individuals to be more consistent next term.
With Rangers dominating possession in most matches, Gerrard is hoping that pacy, clever wingers can supply his forwards with more chances than were produced last season.
If the Rangers boss can teach Kamara and other midfield stars to shoot more accurately from around the box, then it would all help to win games.
Kamara’s insight into parts of Gerrard’s coaching methods at Rangers should give the fans more optimism for winning silverware next season.
