Rangers have recorded fewer more impressive wins in recent times than their 2-1 victory over Celtic at Parkhead a couple of weeks ago.
The Gers were superb from the first whistle to the last, outsmarting, out-battling, and generally outperforming their bitter city rivals.
And in the heat of the celebrations afterwards, it’s safe to say that manager Steven Gerrard was enjoying himself.
The boss exploded into a huge scream upon the final whistle, embracing his players, saluting fans, and unceremoniously shoving cameramen out of the way.
But former Liverpool teammate Danny Murphy thinks that he might come to look back in his sudden outpouring of emotion with a little but of embarrassment.
“He got a little bit carried away in front of the camera… I think he thought he had just scored the winner at Old Trafford or something!
“He’ll probably look back and regret that one. But that shows the passion and the Rangers fans love him.”
Obviously, Murphy knows Gerrard better than any of us, and so he will be more acutely aware of how the manager operates behind closed doors, but if he is at all ashamed of the way that he went on after the Old Firm, he shouldn’t be.
Chris Sutton tweeted after that game claiming that Gerrard was “embarrassing”, but honestly, who cares about people who are peddling that kind of negativity?
It is so refreshing to see somebody with that kind of passion in the dugout at Ibrox, and the outpouring of relief and joy that he showed was only a reflection of how every single Ger around the world was feeling after a stunning win.
Perhaps his celebrations will look a little hasty if the Bears fail to land the league title, but on the day, in the heat of the moment, nobody can deny him the chance to let off some steam.
