Jim White takes swipe at Rangers & Steven Gerrard, Simon Jordan responds
Jim White has taken a swipe at the record of Rangers boss Steven Gerrard after his side crashed out of the Scottish Cup against St Johnstone.
The Bears lost on penalties at Ibrox, leaving the competition at the quarter-final stage after knocking out Celtic previously.
White shared that Gerrard has only won one trophy in three seasons, something Simon Jordan hit back at after the talkSPORT crew had been “waxing lyrical” about the success.
Speaking on talkSPORT this morning, White took a strange swipe at the Bears gaffer after the disappointing defeat on Sunday evening.
“The short and the fall of it is Steven Gerrard has won one trophy in three years,” he said.
Jordan hit back at that claim and insisted that if any fan is upset with that defeat, they need to recognise the success this season and grow up.
“Even I can’t let you get away with that,” he responded.
“We’ve been waxing lyrical about the culmination of the wonderful breaking of the dynasty that Celtic have had in the last ten years and we’re going to pick him up on the fact he’s lost in the Scottish Cup?
“If they are trending because people are dissatisfied then they need to wake up and grow up. They’ve just won the Scottish Premiership.”
This is the problem with finally bringing back success to Ibrox.
After winning one trophy and ending this miserable past decade, every single person will expect the Light Blues to bring home every single piece of silverware; it just doesn’t work like that.
White taking this apparent swipe at Gerrard is a big part of the problem, it instils the culture that he could be doing a much better job at Ibrox.
Compare this to Celtic and the problems they have had with John Kennedy and Neil Lennon, their future looks very bleak and it is hard to predict what could happen there.
Gerrard has used his time effectively, and he has built this monster, something that doesn’t change just because we may have failed in the Scottish Cup.
This will be the goal next season, bring home more silverware, let’s just celebrate the Scottish Premiership title for now; it is still a brilliant year.
