Rangers manager Steven Gerrard waded into the vaccination debate by revealing he’s 100% double jabbed but refused to divulge how many of the players are likewise.
With the new law in effect from two days ago, Rangers tomorrow will have to restrict attendees to providing passport checks or face being blocked from entry, and Gerrard was today asked how many of the squad have supported double vaccinations.
Gerrard, rightly, refused to tell the world private medical information about the players, who have their own right to choose whether or not to tell the world their choice, but did confirm his own status.
Of course, there’s a bit of a dilemma over the position of any sports people in this country who refuse the vaccination – as some of you will know the NBA’s Kyrie Irving refused the double jab and has now been exiled for half the season as a result, so it’s big news, and we’re not sure exactly if any of Rangers’ players would be allowed to play without a jab.
But it’s not confirmed, and the manager has doubled down on refusing to reveal who is or who isn’t.
That said the manager urged everyone to nevertheless have the vaccine, which implies some in the squad have not.
But Gerrard is double jabbed and clearly not afraid to endorse his view on it.
