In what seems to be after an eon, Rangers have become the top dog in the Old Firm derby against Celtic.
Gerrard’s men were fantastic on a night when they were scarred by plenty of injuries. Rangers came out on top with a 1-0 win and their boss feels the Ibrox side were perfect to the last man.
“They (the fans) need to enjoy tonight and the next couple of weeks because they haven’t had the bragging rights for a long time,” he told Sky Sports. “We were better to a man, the better team, and could have won it more comfortably. We were superb today… the players were outstanding. They played with courage and belief, were brave and competed all over the pitch. I asked them to bring their A game but they brought their A-plus.”
“The first half of the season has gone really well,” he said. “We can still improve and grow and we will. I think we’ll get confidence and belief from this. We’ll respect Celtic and the other teams pushing, it’s a tough league and it’s going to be a tough challenge but we need to recover bodies and get our full-strength 11 and squad back and get ready to go again at the end of January.”
Rangers are now equal on point with Celtic although they have played one game more than the Hoops.
