We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish believes that Rangers and Steven Gerrard will be “relentless” in their pursuit of the domestic double this season.
The Bears set up another Old Firm clash against Celtic in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup when beating Cove 4-0 on Sunday evening.
McLeish believes that some younger players may be introduced, but the main goal is to maintain the incredible level of performance at Ibrox.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “Absolutely.
“Steven is obviously in the mode where the whole pressure has been taken off him after winning his first trophy, but he will now be relentless.
“He will be on a pursuit of introducing young players like Patterson, but maintaining the Rangers level of performance.”
That is the perfect word to describe this season and the Bears squad.
Gerrard has delivered an amazing intensity and professionalism at Ibrox, and that is clear as they charge towards an invincibles season.
Can you imagine finishing this campaign unbeaten in five Old Firm games? That would well and truly rub the salt in the wounds of the struggling rivals.
It is the perfect time to start a legacy of dominance in Glasgow and Scotland, and the perfect time to start that is in the next couple of months before next season starts.
