Has Stevie G just dropped a big Liverpool-shaped warning to Rangers?

Recommended Posts

From The Ibrox Noise.

Steven Gerrard may have just given his Rangers players an introspective warning after the manager pointed out that while playing well is important, winning is what matters.
The manager, who tragically failed to win the biggest prize in the domestic game for any domestic club, the league, appeared to allude gently to this when warning his players not to fall down the same path and to make sure they were remembered for more than just being a good player.
He said:
"You don't want to be remembered as just a good player, you want to be remembered as a winner."
In fairness of course, Gerrard did win pretty much everything in the colours of Liverpool – but the grand prize, the English title, was the one to elude him, which, whatever team you support and however you feel about the game, really is a tragedy on a football level.
And he may just have been quietly referring to that – thankfully, generally he is remembered as a winner as well as a legendary player, but that cloud of the lack of EPL title will always hang over him and his wise words to his players infer the commitment that they must make sure they win.
Of course, all Rangers players should want to and must win, but equally, as good as things are getting at Ibrox, we’d be foolish to think Gerrard’s produced the final product yet. But it’s the right thinking to get there.

Okay, he didn't win the Premier League but still, not a bad haul.

Fantastic footballer in his prime, he was able to carry Liverpool on his own at times. Having said that his drive to be the hero all the time came at the cost of more points than it did victories, I remember Paul Scholes making a fantastic point about players that take on wild shots at the end of football matches. Sir Alex would prefer United to recycle play and get the ball out wide for the Wideman to either get the ball into the box or work a clear opening for one of his attackers. 9x out of 10 a wild shot will ever miss the target or be blocked.

If I was a footballer all I'd care about is the money. Who cares about a little medal or cup. 

Me too.

Give me the cool hard cash any day.
