Within seconds of the Europa League group draw being made, the Steven Gerrard Effect was in full flow as Feyenoord, our first opponents next month, proudly tweeted plugging him and Rangers and boasting of his appearance in their shirt.
It’s just the latest incident of how big Gerrard is, how big a coup it actually was to get him to Ibrox, and how big the Rangers family really is when we see Dutch giants of the size of the Rotterdam side eager to curry favour with the England legend and our club in general. And of course the relationship with Stevie’s ex-team mate Dirk Kuyt helps too…

It makes quite a difference from the negative press we’ve been seeing in Scotland lately over the singing nonsense, and it’s refreshing to see our friends in the Netherlands remembering the good relationship we have with all things Oranje and we will indeed look forward to playing them very soon indeed.
