“U12s And U13s Normally Can Clear the Ball With Either Foot” – Gerrard

Steven Gerrard Rangers

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard was a little bit perplexed after his side’s 4-3 defeat to Spartak Moscow in the Europa League tonight. 

Rangers led the match three times throughout the 90 minutes only for a 66 second period in the second half which saw them concede two goals which transformed a 2-3 lead into a 4-3 defeat.

The result may not be the end of the world in the grand scheme of things considering Rangers are only one point off the top of the group. However, they are now level with Spartak after tonight’s loss.

Ally McCoist who provided commentary on the match described the defending he saw as some of the worst he has ever seen and it certainly seems that Gerrard may believe something similar after he spoke to the media after the game.

When describing his side’s defending which saw them concede four goals, Gerrard said that underage footballers can generally clear the ball with either foot.

“Under-12s and under-13s normally can clear the ball with either foot… and when you get a bit older you learn to play the game professionally,” Gerrard said.
