Steven Gerrard has updated Rangers fans on his controversial system change and how his team will be playing going forward.
The Ibrox manager received some stick following Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Kilmarnock for changing the system that helped them beat Celtic 1-0 in their final Scottish Premiership game of 2018.
There was a lot of positivity after that game – and that was only added to by the signings of Jermain Defoe and Steven Davis early on this month.
But the loss to Killie isn’t what anyone at Rangers had in mind.
And many believe the change from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 system is a big reason for that result.
Fans probably want him to return to what they’ve known this season so far – and Gerrard’s comments while speaking to the press today should make them happy:
🎙️SG: We will play different systems as we go along, I'll play the system I think will get a positive result.

That isn’t a guarantee that 4-3-3 will return, but it’s obvious Gerrard will chop and change his system for each game.
And that starts with their game away at Livingston on Sunday.
The teams played out a memorable game at the Tony Macaroni Stadium earlier this season when Livingston won 1-0.
But Rangers ran out 3-0 winners at Ibrox in the last encounter between the sides so it’s anyone’s guess how Sunday goes.
