Gerrard praises rival SPL manager - ceasefire?


The long-toxic relationship between Rangers and Aberdeen has been softened a little by both managers’ comments on both each other and the other club.

Speaking at his Friday presser, Steven Gerrard praised McInnes for what he’s achieved with Aberdeen, and the fact he was linked to Rangers:

“He’s done a very good job. You know I think that’s the reason why he was linked with this football club not so long ago. He’s an in-demand manager. I’ve got a lot of respect for him. He’s got a good team there, an organised team, players who go on the pitch and fight for him and I think he did himself and his club proud in terms of the effort they put in against Burnley over the two legs.”

Off the back of June’s comments from McInnes:


“Gerrard is a global name so if it was to happen it can only raise the profile of the Scottish game. If he was to come into it, on the back of his playing career, it would be a box-office name. As a player Gerrard was fantastic and was arguably the best midfielder around for a while. He was an inspirational figure for England and Liverpool. We have a lot of good managers here at the minute. He would only add to that.”

We do wonder if there is now a bit of a cease fire especially after the flamethrowing Pedro and McInnes lobbed at each other.

While we don’t want the feisty nature of this fixture to mellow, a reduction in the genuine nastiness surrounding it wouldn’t be an entirely bad thing.

  2. McInnes has done a good job, albeit helped by our incompetence over the last few years. I think Hibs are the team we should be more worried about. Lennon, as much as Rangers fans dislike him, is one of the best managers in the league and I can see good things coming from Easter Road. I know we would prefer to win the league and as much as I would love that to happen, I still think we need to keep looking behind us at the other teams too.

  8. I can't be bothered with this " I fu cking hate the bastards" attitude. It is toxic and leads to unnecessary animosity between clubs. At the end of the day they are all teams of professionals earning a living and doing the best they can. I don't care about anything other than my team winning. What is the point of hating anyone for that. Good to see that the managers are at least trying to ease some of the tension.

    1. You're right. Fuck them all. I agree, but I don't find it necessary to hate them. Just appreciate what we have and let them all get on with their petty beliefs. There will only be one winner.

  12. Leave the gentlemanly conduct for our Managers. We'll still dislike each other, as much as ever. I think if we field the right team and everybody is switched on and doesn't go to sleep, it could be 5-1 to us. GIRUY, SS. WATP

  13. it wasn't just that Neil Simpson career ending injury on Durrant, its the fact their fans put photos of our late great Davie Cooper in their toilets and pissed all over them, and many sick chants over the years about our staircase 13, their fans are absolute scum
