RANGERS start a new chapter in the club’s history tonight when Bury travel to Ibrox for Steven Gerrard’s first home match in charge of the Light Blues.
To mark the occasion an 84-page souvenir programme has been printed and inside fans can read exclusive interviews with the new Gers boss, his former Liverpool and England teammate Jamie Carragher, director of football Mark Allen, club legend Walter Smith and Eighties striker Colin West.
Gerrard discusses the 90 minutes coming up against the Shakers, the standards he expects from his players this season and the excitement he is feeling as he is preparing to walk out in front of the Ibrox faithful.
Anfield icon Carragher is backing his close friend to be a big success in his first managerial role while Nine in a Row gaffer Smith believes Gerrard is a great appointment and someone who possesses the hunger, knowledge and passion to take the club back to the top.
Colin West was Graeme Souness’ first signing as Rangers manager in the mid-Eighties and the former striker, who was the assistant manager at Carlisle United last season, hopes the summer of 2018 can be the start of a similar ‘revolution’ with Gerrard now at the helm.
Director of football Mark Allen is also in this evening’s programme and he gives his thoughts on the hard work going on behind the scenes, on and off the pitch, at the Hummel Training Centre as Rangers get ready for an exciting year both at first team and youth levels.
But that’s not all, tonight’s issue also includes:
- A welcome from managing director Stewart Robertson
