The whitewash of Steven Gerrard

With every article we’ve penned about Steven Gerrard (pretty much since his exit) we’ve had the same mixed response:

One half agrees with our cutting remarks, our criticism of his exit and our credit to him for 55 and European performance.

The other half repeats, ad-nauseum, ‘give it a rest, he’s history ffs, move on’.

Someone explain how one of the biggest events and shocks in our modern history is whitewashed by some this easily?

Steven Gerrard is as big a deal now if not more than Souness in the 90s, and we can assure you Rangers fans still discuss his exit to this day.

But somehow there’s a big portion of fans who want to censor discussion on Gerrard, wanting only to focus on the next manager and almost pretend Gerrard didn’t happen.

In fact, they get genuinely angry if we dare discuss him.

Sorry guys, what happened was a huge deal and a major chunk of the support still wants to chew the fat over it, so if you don’t, feel free not to read or comment on content covering it.

We spoke about Warburton for weeks, months – and in truth, the same types were in there saying the same things. ‘He’s history ffs, move on’.

Pure censorship and a bizarre whitewash of a huge event which happened to our club.

The same with Pedro.

Just a big chunk of our fans who slam anyone who dares to refer to the past.

As if the past doesn’t matter.

Same fans, btw, who preach ‘from where we came from’ etc all the time to contextualise what we’ve achieved. Guess the past matters some of the time huh?

End of the day, live and let live. If folk want to discuss, praise, whine, complain about Gerrard, they can.

Never forget.

  1. I have banned words like slippy, SG, Gerrard, Aston villa, SNP, not loyal enough from my twitter account and the world has certainly became a better place for myself

  2. I concur, I.N. In my humble opinion, this is a vital issue which needs to be discussed and chewed over by fans. We need to learn from this debacle before we can gain closure and move on fully. Gerrard left us at the worst possible time. Forget Souness and Brenda, across the city. We were in a better position when Souness left us and, as you have earlier stated, he left for a club where he had forged his career; Rodgers had gone as far as he could with the Dhims and the season was all but done then, anyway. Gerrard has left us at a make or break point in our season and taken all the coaching staff with him, thanks Stevie. We have vital games coming up with no sign of a new manager, or coaching staff, in place. We are in a very difficult position. I, personally, believe that there is much more to this. The Board should have had plans in place for potential successors before all this blew up. Why are they uming and awing now over a new manager, when there, clearly, is a manager, in Gio, that most fans want witgh sound credentials for the job.

  3. Thought you worked to real Rangers standards and traditions Stevie .
    All makes sense now though , ” LET’S GO ” right enough son !!
