Rangers midfielders Greg Docherty has admitted he would love to play under Steven Gerrard and the Liverpool legend is someone he wants to emulate.
On media duties before the Old Firm this Sunday, Docherty tried his best to impart the importance of current manager Graeme Murty, but betrayed his true thoughts when asked about Gerrard.
“It would be disrespectful of us players to talk about it, we’ve got a job at hand and we focus on the pitch and let the guys above focus on whoever’s going to take charge next year.”
All very true from the 21-year old. But then his true feelings emerged:
“Steven Gerrard is a renowned name in world football, he’s a midfielder and I’d love to be able to play like him and if I could learn off a guy like that it would be great.”
Pretty evident the esteem Docherty holds Gerrard in, and you get the impression his current manager doesn’t exactly have his full backing in the same way.
