“No phonies” – Steven Gerrard reads the riot act…

If Rangers fans needed evidence
from the training pitch of just how the new regime is starting to deliver the
kind of preparation that has been missing from Ibrox for the best part of seven
years, recent footage from the summer camp in Malaga has been doing the rounds
on social media and the response has been gushing to say the least.
As we know only too well Rangers
players have been living off the fat of the land for way too long, and been
delivering weak and feeble displays as a result. As a Rangers player being
bullied by Hibs and Hamilton far less Celtic is utterly unacceptable, but
Gerrard’s words in Spain
have been absolutely seized on, and no wonder.
During a training match, Gerrard
made his feelings absolutely clear:
“No phonies who’re pretending,
just little crazy jogs in, watching the ball. We go in to win the ball all over
the pitch, ok? Get it in your heads now. Take a rest break.”
Gerrard, simply, isn’t going to
stand for the absolute hogwash other managers have – of course there’s a
question of why players delivered such feeble nonsense for this club whoever
the manager was.
Nevertheless SG is rooting it out
completely and making it perfectly clear he expects the same level of
aggression, energy, passion and effort he used to exalt on the pitch himself.
Exactly the same as Rangers
should deliver.

  1. Great to here Stevie Ger reading the riot act. This is going to be a very different Rangers altogether. Still think a few at the camp will be moved on though, it will depend if he gets all his targets he's after in this window. Really looking forward to the season start. Lets Go

  2. The gaffer seems to be addressing all issues from fitness, poor defence and lack of heart. As the article alludes to.
    WATP LETS GO

  3. Absolutely Delighted with This
    Buzzin!
    Good to see him letting them know that he wont take any BS, or less than 100% EVERY Game

    Should be a Different Rangers when the Season Starts 🤔

  4. Should be very interesting to see how many of the lazy lazy inept amateurish couldn't give a fuck players last under Steve Gerarrd.
    Still raging at the suggestion Halliday could stay. Unlessssssss

    Is HE the New Broxi?

  5. ITS TIME WE HAD A FUCKIN HARDMAN,WHO TAKES NO CHANCERS STEALING WAGES
    DO THE JOB YOUR PAID FOR OR GTF🏋️‍♂️

    LETS GO WATP 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧 LETS WALK THE WALK🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

  6. Best video clip coming out of Rangers FC in a very longtime troops.. Stevie Gerrard has standards the Team must follow – if they don’t or can’t then they will lose their place to somebody that can…

    As I’d said before not since the Souness era have we had this type of hunger #LetsGo 🔴⚪️🔵

    • Did say he was Stumbler.. Just saying the support are buzzing with having somebody that won’t take shite.. Walter didn’t carry the same buzz when he first stepped in no disrespect to Walter..

  7. Warburton ( the guy who said Jock Wallace was a bully ) turned us into a team of pussies . Hopefully we'll be back to the way we expect a Rangers team to be , getting right into it ! Hope the new guys have got real dig about them !

  8. Glad to hear he's not going to put up with the sheer laziness and weakness, we saw last season. That kind of slovenly play, has to be routed out. In fact, I still think we need to cull more. I hope SG and his staff, are reading them the riot act, straight. This is a new dawn and we're not accepting half-hearted play, any longer.

  9. I disagree on Halliday. I don't think he was ever managed properly nor played to his strengths. Like fannybaws in the east SG might turn a few players around. Either way you wear the shirt you get support
