Rangers will return from their winter break in Dubai knowing that they have put themselves in a great position in the Scottish Premiership.
The 2-1 victory over Celtic before the break meant that a win in their game-in-hand would put them above their fierce rivals and into the driving seat.
Steven Gerrard will be delighted with that, but he knows better than anyone just how quickly that can slip away.
Former Gers enforcer Madjid Bougherra has recently revisited his former club during the break in Dubai and made a pledge to return to Ibrox should they win the title this season.
“When I heard they would be in Dubai I wanted to come and see the game and friends such as Steven and Allan, as well as Jimmy Bell and other members of the staff,” he told the Daily Record.
“I miss the place. It is something special – the atmosphere around the club, the fans, everything is amazing. In my career, my best experience at any club was at Rangers.
“I want to go back and see one game at Ibrox and it would be perfect to return on the day Rangers win the title again.”
Bougherra is spot on. It would be perfect for Rangers fans all over the world for them to finally win the league once again.
It is hard to envisage what the reaction would be like in Ibrox, and there would surely be endless celebrations to winning their first top-flight title since 2011 – something Bougherra would love to be present for.
