Martin O’Neill Warns Steven Gerrard About Taking Over “Dreadful” Rangers

Steven Gerrard looks set to be instilled as the new Rangers boss after the news that interim manager Graeme Murty has left the club despite there being three games left in the season.

Murty’s current record since he took over as caretaker manager has been 12 victories in 20 games but he oversaw a humiliating defeat at the weekend as his Rangers side lost 5-0 to Celtic which confirmed their bitter rivals as champions for the seventh consecutive season.

Gerrard looks set to be announced as the new manager and it will certainly bring a lot of new challenges compared to his current role in the Liverpool U-18 setup.

Martin O’Neill, who has experience in Scotland’s top-flight as Celtic boss, has issued a warning to Gerrard ahead of the Liverpool legend taking the reins at the Glasgow club.

O’Neill believes that Gerrard will be taking over a “dreadful” team but admits that he can only improve the situation at Ibrox.

“He hasn’t got a clue what he’s letting himself in for, but he has been born and bred in Liverpool so he must have an idea,” O’Neill said

“I hope he does (get the job), it would be nice to see him. I think he’d be terrific for Rangers at this stage because it’s unquestionably the worst side that has ever, ever played for Rangers.”

“They are so, so bad. They are worse than bad, they are dreadful!

“I think the only way is up for him if that’s the case.”
