Tam McManus has claimed that Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has learned massively from the failures last season.
Gerrard was criticised for his reaction after the Old Firm in the last campaign, and after that, the Bears collapsed to finish second.
Compare that to this season, Rangers are currently unbeaten in all competitions and boast a healthy lead over their fierce rivals.
Speaking on PLZ Soccer, McManus admitted that Gerrard deserves to be credited for that turnaround and that he will only continue to get better at Ibrox as time goes on.
“He’s learned massively from last season,” he said.
“When Rangers won at Parkhead, he was screaming into the camera, he got a bit of stick for that. I think he’s learned a lot from that, he’s a young manager – he’ll be learning from every game, every season.
“He’s learnt to be more humble. He’s keeping everybody’s feet on the ground.”
Everyone remembers the pain of last season.
The highs of the win at Celtic followed by defeats against the likes of relegated Hearts, and that is one of the reasons why we don’t expect that to happen again.
Gerrard is a different man this season, and his emotions are yet to spill out – as he keeps his and his sides’ feet on the ground at Ibrox.
The respect he showed against Falkirk said it all, naming the likes of James Tavernier, Borna Barisic and Conor Goldson in the starting XI – showing no mercy to them in the 4-0 thrashing.
Gerrard isn’t only keen to bring the league title back to Ibrox, he wants them all, and he won’t stop until it is physically impossible not to lift those pieces of silverware.
