Video: Steven Gerrard Accused of Being ‘Arrogant and Disrespectful’ After St Johnstone Win

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been accused of being arrogant and disrespectful following his side’s late win over St Johnstone in Perth this afternoon.

With the Premiership title race just starting to heat up, it looked like Gerrard’s men were about to drop costly points at McDiarmid Park after Matty Kennedy’s opening goal just before half-time.

The Ibrox side were a far cry from being at their best but a late onslaught soon turned things around, with subs Glen Middleton and Kyle Lafferty causing significant problems in the Saints defence.

In the end, an Alfredo Morelos double turned things around and sealed a 2-1 victory, but Gerrard was far from happy after the full-time whistle.

He said his side looked like a team at the bottom of the league, rather than title challengers, but some of his reference to today’s opposition haven’t gone down well with some people.

In his post-match interviews, Gerrard insinuated that his Rangers team should be strolling to victory ‘at places like this’ and took a very dim view of being taken to the very end by Tommy Wright’s men.

His comments might have been honest and innocently intended, but they didn’t go unnoticed:

Do you think Gerrard was being rude and disrespectful to St Johnstone?
