Gerrard warns Rangers players to prepare for a fight

first_imgRangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard has warned his players they have to be prepared for a fight if they’re to pick up a win against Hamilton.The Gers travel to the New Douglas Park this Sunday to face Hamilton on the back of a disappointing league defeat to Livingston.Gerrard is planning to deliver one of the shortest team talks in history and will use as few words as possible to highlight the dangers of dismissing the opposition lightly.Instead, he will let the memory of the team’s poorest performance since he took over simmer into the player’s minds hoping to elicit a positive response from his players.He said, according to Daily Mail: ‘I’ll just put up a sign saying “Livingston 1 Rangers 0 – what are you gonna do about it?”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“Because if you turn up and play the same way, the same will happen. So, it will be easy, the team talk.”“It’s a great test for the players. They’ve had some criticism in terms of the away form and sometimes in football you have to forget about the nice bits, the tactical side.”“Sometimes you just have to go out and do the basics well; turn up and just empty it for your club and your supporters – and more often than not that will get you where you want to go.”“We’ll have a game plan. It’s a similar fixture to Livingston and we had a game plan there, but we never carried it out – we never turned up.”“So the players have two options: Go and empty it and fight for the shirt and the fans – or put in a Livingston performance, and let everyone talk about your away form for a bit longer.”last_img
