Video: Peter Crouch Explains How ‘Ruthless’ Steven Gerrard Has ‘So High’ Standards

Premier League legend Peter Crouch has explained just how ruthless Rangers boss Steven Gerrard can be during training sessions.

Crouch, who is now 38 and currently in the midst of negotiating a new deal with Burnley, previously played alongside Gerrard at Liverpool and went on to win the 2006 FA Cup and play in the 2007 Champions League Final alongside the current Gers manager.

But Crouch has revealed how Gerrard – and his old Anfield cohort Jamie Carragher – left him a nervous wreck after his first day of training with the Merseyside club.

Crouch joined Liverpool for £7 million in the summer of 2005, following Southampton’s relegation to the Championship, but it wasn’t long before the ex-England striker was left feeling Gerrard’s ire:

We’re willing to bet there’s plenty of current Rangers players who are willing to agree with Crouch about Gerrard’s standards.

Surely this can only be a positive characteristic for a modern manager to have, eh?

What do you think?
