Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has called upon his squad to defend their league title as if their lives depended on it. They won the Premiership title without losing a single match. The rangers will start their campaign against Livingston on July 31.
“I feel really optimistic and excited about the future at Rangers,” said Rangers manager Steven Gerrard. “I want us to defend this championship with our lives and also attack 2021/22 with everything we have got, with hopefully all our fans back at Ibrox and at away games if the coronavirus restrictions allow for that. But for me, that is what being at this club is all about – it is about success, trophies, and keeping that hunger and consistency moving forward.”
“That hunger is either in you or it is not and I think the day when I don’t feel it is in me is the day I won’t get involved in football or I’ll call it a day,” he added. “It goes without saying that we have missed our supporters massively and, while we want to build on our recent league success for them, we also want to improve and go further in the domestic cup competitions while striving to be better in Europe. So there is much to play for next season and with new faces, in our squad, there is no reason why we can’t go into it with great optimism, excitement, and belief.”
Rangers set a host of record last season under the liverpool legend. They broke the 100-point barrier as well as set a clean sheet record. They won every match at home and went unbeaten the entire season. This was their first league title in almost a decade with the last win coming in 2011.
