Young 20-year-old Glasgow Rangers man Ross McCrorie played exceptionally well in the holding midfield role against Celtic in the 1-0 win at Ibrox last week.
This allowed Ryan Jack to play in a slightly more advanced role, which helped him to take advantage of Ryan Kent’s perfect cut back for him to score the only game of the game.
It proved to be a clever move, as it gave Jack the chance to score that all-important opening goal to give Rangers all three points.
An extremely valuable confidence boosting win for the Light Blues, not to mention, the ‘Glasgow bragging rights’ for another few months.
Gerrard could not praise the Rangers fans enough after the game, and he hoped it was a sign of plenty more things to come from his group of players.
“That we should certainly enjoy the victory for what it was, but we should also use it as a boost for the future as he knows we can still make plenty of improvements in the second half of the current campaign,” the ex-Liverpool legend told Sky Sports after the game.
“We were better to a man, the better team, and could have won it more comfortably. We were superb today…the players were outstanding. They played with courage and belief, were brave and competed all over the pitch”.
“I asked them to bring their A game but they brought their A-plus. The first half of the season has gone really well. We can still improve and grow and we will”.
“I think we’ll get confidence and belief from this. We’ll respect Celtic and the other teams pushing, it’s a tough league”.
“It’s going to be a tough challenge but we need to recover bodies and get our full-strength 11 and squad back and get ready to go again at the end of January.”
