Video: Graeme Souness Says Rangers Could Catch Celtic With a “Large Slice of Luck”

Ex-Rangers manager Graeme Souness believes that with a “large slice of luck” Steven Gerrard could mount a serious title charge on Celtic.

Gerrard officially took the reigns at Ibrox yesterday, having been unveiled as the club’s successor to Graeme Murty before the end of the Scottish Premiership season.

It’s understood that Gerrard along with director of football Mark Allen are already busy on the transfer market, with the Gers boss currently in France at the Toulon Tournament.

Having walked a very similar path to Gerrard, in captaining Liverpool and managing Rangers, Souness was asked his thoughts on the 38-year-old by BBC Sportsound.

And while Souness conceded that Rangers have had “difficult times” over the last seven years with Celtic romping the league, he also has a sneaky feeling that Gerrard could prove a success… with a large slice of luck:

 

Rangers have already brought in former Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield and sealed a return for Allan McGregor since the transfer market opened.

And with more new faces expected to arrive before their crucial Europa League qualifier in July, Gerrard may have a very different squad at his disposal when the league season kicks-off.
