Steven Gerrard grabbed plenty of headlines this summer when it was announced that he'd be making the move north of the border to join Rangers. It's the Liverpool legends first job in senior management and it looked like a tough one, as he bids to overthrow Celtic who've dominated Scottish football for some time now - coincidentally led by his former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers. His time so far has been a mixed one really, there's been some positive results and performances - particularly in the Europa League - but domestically they've been inconsistent at times.
Everyone who knows Steven Gerrard knows that he demands a huge amount from his players and teammates so he's bound to be unhappy at his sides deficiencies - something that he made evident during his sides disappointing 1-0 defeat to Aberdeen in the League Cup semi-finals on the weekend. He delivered a fierce warning to his players following that result, claiming that the players who underperform will be replaced if they're not up to it - words that will now be ringing round ears of Rangers' key men.
Well if that wasn't enough, he showed just how serious he is by assertively stamping his authority during Rangers' pre-Kilmarnock press conference. Young midfielder Jordan Rossiter was asked a question by a member of the press about his managers comments on the weekend before butting in putting his view across. The pressure at a club as big as Rangers is massive and Gerrard's words will surely give the players plenty of motivation as we approach the winter transfer window.
