Steven Gerrard Hopes Rangers Players Thrive Playing Away at Celtic Like He Did Against Everton and Manchester United

Steven Gerrard hopes his Rangers players thrive playing away at Celtic like he did against Everton and Manchester United.

The Ibrox boss takes his side to Celtic Park on Sunday hoping to breathe some life into their run-in.

At the moment, they trail Celtic by 10 points in the Premiership title race and the current holders are favourites to now clinch their eighth in a row.

But the gap can be cut to seven if Rangers win on Sunday – and that would perhaps give Gerrard’s men some belief they can at least apply some pressure between now and the end of the season.

Rangers won the last derby between the teams 1-0 thanks to Ryan Jack’s goal, but that game was at Ibrox.

The last time out at Celtic Park it ended 1-0 to the Hoops – and previous visits there weren’t the best either.

And now Gerrard wants his players to step up to the occasion at Celtic Park and thrive like he did as a Liverpool player appearing in derbies against Everton and Manchester United:

He added:

Rangers aren’t on the best run of form going into this game – without a win in their last four games.

But all of that would be forgotten about if Gerrard and his side can emerge from Celtic Park victorious.
