Jiri Jarosik has hit out at Rangers and says Steven Gerrard is using the club as a stepping stone in his career.
The Gers boss is on the edge of glory at Ibrox after guiding the club to within one point of securing the Premiership title and looks to be in it for the long haul but not everyone is convinced.
In an exclusive interview with MailSport which was relayed on the Daily Record website Jarosik, who spent two years in Scotland between 2006-08, claimed that Gerrard has bigger fish to fry.
The former Celtic and Chelsea player said: “It’s good for him to start at a club like Rangers.
“If he does it there, he’ll take his next step as a manager.
“This is the best way, to start at a smaller club – then aim for the biggest.”
SG has already found his big club
We had to double-check his status as a former player such is the irrelevance of his name.
Jarosik was just another forgetful midfielder that played for the other side and had little to no meaningful impact in the Scottish game so what credibility he has in making these claims is beyond us.
He might want to check the Premiership table and see our progress in the Europa League this season for proof of our size and stature.
History can’t be altered and we are undoubtedly a big club – Gerrard doesn’t need to go anywhere.
While we endured a spell in the doldrums we are now back on the scene and showing our greatness.
Unbeaten in the league and Europe, we are sweeping all before us.
Former forgotten Celtic players would be minded to take heed of this before they spout more nonsense.
He’s clearly just trying to curry favour from Celtic fans and gain some more relevance.
You don’t get much bigger than Rangers.
