Rangers fans express adoration for Gerrard following Europa League qualifying win

When Steven Gerrard became Rangers manager, pressure was heaped on the Liverpool legend’s shoulders.

It is the first high-profile role that the 38-year-old has taken since moving into coaching.

Gerrard learned the ropes as Under-18s boss at Anfield, and after 15 months in the job, the former midfielder decided to take on the Scottish giants.

So far, everything is running smoothly for the ex-Liverpool captain as the Gers are unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions.

On Thursday night, Rangers reached the playoffs of the Europa League thanks to a goalless draw with Maribor in the third qualifying round.

In stoppage time, goalkeeper Allan McGregor made a crucial penalty save to deny Marcos Tavares from the spot.

After the final whistle, Gerrard delivered his post-match thoughts to the media, and he had plenty of praise for his players.

Amid the euphoria of the result, some fans hailed their manager, claiming that he has restored hope among the club’s faithful.
