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 the Bears squad have to fight their natural human instinct in games after their recent performances.
Steven Gerrard has accused his squad of being “off it” in recent weeks in the games against the likes of Hibernian and St. Johnstone.
McLeish insisted that the Gers have approached games in a great manner, and are still finding ways to win despite not being at their best.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “That’s just a natural human instinct.
“That is why if you’re trying to get to the top, you have to have a mindset that takes you above that kind of thought process, and the way Rangers approach things are great.”
Rangers have destroyed the competition in Scotland this season, and it must be hard for them to be at their best in every single game.
Gerrard mixed his squad up massively last night against St. Johnstone, and apart from that last-minute penalty, it would have been the perfect response.
McLeish will know what it is like to motivate a group of players, and it won’t take much to get this dressing room ready to go on matchday.
With only a handful of games to go until our invincible season is confirmed, Gerrard will need to work his magic to make sure that aren’t many more “off” days.
