Former Rangers player and Ibrox legend Ally McCoist has claimed that Steven Gerrard will change people’s lives if the Gers can win the Scottish Premier League title this year.
The Rangers are 21 points ahead of Celtic in the league table, although the Bhoys have three games in hand. Even if they win those games, the Rangers will maintain a healthy 12-point gap.
Celtic have won the league title nine times in a row and unless there is a major collapse of the Gers they are unlikely to reach 10th on the trot.
McCoist has praised Gerrard for the excellent job he has done at Rangers since taking office in 2018. He told talkSPORT that it will be an “incredible” achievement and that even Gerrard will be amazed at the effect it will have on so many people.
Many Rangers have shared their reaction after the audio log was posted from the talkSPORT Twitter user:
When we win this league and stop 10 in a row, he instantly becomes a GOD.

Seriously, last night I was trying to explain to Mrs. how huge this is. She has no idea, for 9 years our life has been hell. From the bottom of Scottish football to being champions in 9 years is an incredible achievement. 55 is coming and I can’t wait🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

For me, this has never been about stopping the 10. It’s just about winning the title. The fact that they will never reach that holy grail they have sought is simply a huge bonus and I will absolutely rub their noses in their incredible meltdown, but this season it’s all about RANGERS.

I wish there were social media during the Rangers era 9 in a row because the last 10 years of them rubbing our noses has been off the scale! So as a Rangers fan and when we get over the line, I bet we’re going to ENJOY it !! 🇬🇧👊🏻

Ally thank you for your help in the dark days, that’s why @RangersFC Fans will be eternally grateful and yes, SG still won’t know the greatness to which he will be entitled as our Rangers manager for what he is about to experience.

SL View: Gradual Progress Under Gerrard
In the previous two seasons under Gerrard, the Rangers collapsed in the second half despite having a good start to the season.
However, Rangers have made great progress under the Liverpool legend, where Gerrard has been able to bring quality players to the team to close the gap with Celtic.
This season they have shown great consistency and, with key players performing at a high level, results have improved dramatically.
Rangers entered the administration a few years ago and winning the title would be huge for the club and the fans. Rather than preventing Celtic from winning ten in a row, fans will feel reborn from the ashes.
From that perspective, McCoist is absolutely spot on. Gerrard will be able to understand the emotions if the Rangers win the league title. As a player, he was unable to lift the Premier League title with Liverpool, but was immensely proud of the club’s success when the Reds won the title last year.
