Chris Sutton has hailed Steven Gerrard as a Rangers legend after the Gers secured a win over St Mirren with one point now required to win the title.
The Light Blues can win the title on Sunday if Celtic drop points to Dundee United and Sutton believes this feat has cemented Gerrard’s place in the history of the club.
More specifically, the former Celtic man claimed that stopping his old team from winning a tenth title in a row makes Gerrard a legend.
When asked on BT Sport’s Score programme if Gerrard is a Rangers legend, Sutton said, “Oh, no doubt about that.
“Stopping the 10 is such a big deal and it’s been tough. Rangers have stuck with him. He didn’t win anything in his first two seasons.
“But he has been building and they’ve been so so impressive this season. You talk about [Alfredo] Morelos being a key player, he’s made every player in that squad better this season.
“They’ve blown Celtic away and are doing well in Europe but just for stopping the 10 he will be a legend.”
This is incredibly gracious from Sutton as his anti-Rangers agenda is well known by anyone associated with the Ibrox club.
You won’t find us saying this too often but we agree with Sutton.
Gerrard is a Rangers legend, he has to be after the achievements of this season.
The title is in the bag and the meaning behind that is something that is hard to define to someone outside of Glasgow.
Celtic winning 10 in a row would be a dark day in the history of Rangers and Gerrard has managed to put a stop to the seemingly unstoppable Celtic machine.
And with such style.
The league was won by pretty much as soon as the season started and we have ended their dominance.
Legend doesn’t come close.
