Sky Sports pundit, and former Celtic striker, Andy Walker believes Rangers must keep faith with manager Steven Gerrard even if he fails to win the Scottish Premiership title this season.
Despite shelling out on the likes of Ryan Kent and Filip Helander in the summer, Walker still believes that more investment is needed in order to get on par with their Old Firm rivals, and he insists Gerrard should be entrusted with the responsibility:
“If Rangers want to improve they have to stick by Steven Gerrard and they have to give him a bit of money to spend. Rangers need more quality, the type of quality and strength in depth that Celtic have. I think if Rangers want to match Celtic they have to stick by Steven Gerrard and give him money to get more quality in.”
The season isn’t over yet, and Walker is being slightly premature with his assumption that the Gers will not be able to overhaul Celtic at the top of the table.
However, if Gerrard does finish behind the Hoops for a second successive campaign, there will be question marks about the Gers boss’s future at Ibrox. There have been mistakes made in the transfer market, and while stability is required for success, there will be those at the club who may have their doubts about the current man in charge and his ability to take the team forward.
