What Steven Gerrard did after Rangers' draw with Villarreal speaks volumes

Working in Scotland as manager of Rangers, Steven Gerrard is slowly but surely building his reputation as a coach but has reinforced his rep as one of the classiest men in the business with what is now becoming a post-match ritual.

Liverpool are doing fantastically this season and supporters have never been happier with the job that Jürgen Klopp is doing at the helm, with his charismatic and infectious nature perfect for the club and city.

While the Reds are the focus point for fans, some have their eyes on what Steven Gerrard is getting up to in Scotland as the Liverpool icon looks to build a reputation as a football manager.

Results aside, the Scouser has developed a classy post-match ritual where he steps onto the pitch to greet every single player from the opposition and congratulate them regardless of the result.

A video on Twitter (one of many) shows Gerrard stepping onto the pitch to greet players from the Villarreal team after Rangers’ Europa League draw with the Spanish outfit.

Speaking after the game, Stevie said: “I would definitely have taken this position before we started – 100 per cent.

“It’s difficult to gauge right now because with Europe everything is fantastic but in the league, I would like a few more points on the board. I’m not one to use any excuses – could have, should have, maybe.

“It’s important that we take the second-half performance from Thursday night into the league because when we came back from the international break my priority was the league games.”
