Pretty astonishing, isn’t it.
Just under three years ago, Steven Gerrard was unveiled in a blitz of razzmatazz, appointed Rangers manager from left field, his first managerial appointment.
Gerrard stated he believed he could overturn the colossal gap to Celtic, but not even his most ardent disciples could expect.
They only hoped, had faith.
Ibrox Noise? We loved the appointment, and were eager to see what difference he could make.
Like you all, we have had so many doubts, seeing so many cup exits, seeing some bad results and for two seasons in a row finishing a distant second to Celtic.
Regulars will know we criticised Stevie many times, we criticised much of his personnel choices, and we bemoaned some of his signings.
But true eagle eyes among you will know we never once suggested his head, never once asked the board to sack him.
We didn’t completely back him when we had huge doubts but we saw absolutely no point letting him go – some did, and we never supported that.
There are those who completely had faith throughout, not many – we know some of his biggest believers had doubts at certain points, so don’t feel bad for having those misgivings.
But now, 2021, just 6 (or 7) points away from his first league title in football, just 6 points from the end of our Journey, and it defies belief.
Make no mistake – Rangers’ title this season is the biggest story in football history.
Exiled to the bottom of football, starting all over again with a new squad barely fit for Alloa never mind Rangers, but we kept at it.
For 10 years we kept at it.
Us fans stuck by this club through it all.
And now just two or three weeks away from 55.
And now not only will we win the league after all we’ve been through, but we’ve not just caught up with Celtic but completely destroyed them.
This Rangers team is up there with the best squads we’ve ever had, and has had a record breaking season beyond all expectation.
And Steven Gerrard is where that started.
Simply the Best.
