The new Glasgow Rangers side created by rookie manager Steven Gerrard is starting to show their true potential, despite the poor refereeing decisions that continue to haunt them.
Rangers players booed by the so called, ‘Tartan Army’, and the SFA and BBC firmly against the Ibrox club, provide the ‘Blue Brigade’ with reasons to be wary of much of the Scottish media.
Rangers fans have been forced to listen to BT Sports pundits Chris Sutton and John Hartson promoting their views that the Light Blues are miles behind Celtic and will do well to get second in the league over Aberdeen.
Next, Neil Lennon, the Hibernian manager opined, “Don’t believe the hype about Rangers”. All three of these people are ex-Celtic players with biased views.
Several prominent journalists wrote that to hire Gerrard was a reckless route for the Ibrox club to go down. Shows you what they know.
Without rhyme nor reason they said Gerrard had an impossible challenge ahead. They insisted Brendan Rodgers and his wonderful Celtic would walk the title and go on to win 10 in a row.
What are they saying now – nothing.
Actions speak louder than words, so the Rangers fans are not shouting about winning the league.
Rangers are playing attractive football and scoring goals for fun. The team are still to gel even further together in the next few months.
Once Gerrard and his talented backroom staff get more time to work with this squad, just watch them go.
Gerrard is the first to say there is still a lot to be done. Eros Grezda has still to find his match fitness and will be a first team pick when he is fit enough to start games.
When will Scottish football admit that Rangers are back in the big time, and start to give them some credit?
I wouldn’t hold my breath.
