STEVEN GERRARD was a winner throughout his remarkable football career at Liverpool and he insists he will demand the same from his Rangers players.

The new Light Blues boss, speaking exclusively to RangersTV this afternoon, admitted it was too early to say what style of football he will want to see from his side.

However, he knows the importance of winning week on, week out and that is something he will be drilling into his players when he takes charge at the club on June 1.

He said: “Winning football, I think the key is we have to win.

In terms of philosophies there will be a time when we’ll need to go into more detail on how we play. But what I won’t be one of those managers that goes on about a philosophy and talks and talks and talks; I think it’s important to walk the walk.

“The supporters will see very clearly from the off what we are trying to get into the team and what we are trying to get out of the players.

“So there will be a time and a place to talk in detail about a philosophy, but the most important thing is that we win football matches. That’s what you have to do when you are part of this football club.”

Gerrard will now work closely with Director of Football Mark Allen and Head of Scouting Andy Scoulding so that he can bolster the squad for the 2018/19 campaign.

He added:I think the important thing there is we’re a team here. There is no ego, it’s not just about me.

I’m a team player so myself, Mark and Andy will bang our heads together in the coming weeks and we’ll identify players with the right qualities and the right values who we believe can handle the pressure and responsibility of being a Rangers player.

“Not players who just want to come and be a Rangers player, players who want to come and face the challenge and deliver under pressure. If we can identify players who fancy that we’ll get them in.”
