Rangers Boss Steven Gerrard Makes £5,000 Donation to Charity in Govan

Rangers Boss Steven Gerrard Makes £5,000 Donation to Charity in Govan

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has put his money where his mouth is in the fight against the coronavirus by donating £5,000 to a Glasgow-based charity.

Like every other club in the Scottish Premiership, Gerrard and his players haven’t kicked a ball in several weeks as authorities attempt to quell the spread of the Covid-19 disease, and it remains to be seen when top-flight football will return in the UK.

But, understandably, football has taken a back seat recently, and Gerrard’s own foundation has contributed towards helping the community around Ibrox.

The Govan Youth Information Project has received a £5,000 grant from the Steven Gerrard foundation, with the funds ensuring that they can hand out badly-needed food packages to people affected by the crisis in the local area.

Yesterday we told you how the Rangers hierarchy had offered to make the club’s Ibrox stadium available to the NHS, with Spanish giants Real Madrid storing medical supplies inside the Santiago Bernabeu for the foreseeable future.

But what do you think of Gerrard’s gesture?
