Frank McAvennie thrilled by Steven Gerrard admission, aims big swipe at Neil Lennon

Frank McAvennie has been thrilled by Rangers boss Steven Gerrard and his determination to seek advice during his time at Ibrox.

It was shared by the Bears boss that he has been in conversations with the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson since starting in Glasgow, and he finally has the title to celebrate this success.

McAvennie also aimed a big swipe at Neil Lennon for not doing the same, claiming that is pride may have been too big for his own liking.

Speaking on the Open Goal Show on YouTube, McAvennie also aimed a big swipe at his former club and Lennon.

“Gerrard is coming out now and saying that Souness, Walter Smith and he’s also spoen to Alex Ferguson,” he said.

“It takes a lot for managers to go out and get advice, I think that is brilliant what he’s done by asking for advice from some of the good guys.

“I don’t know if Lenny [Neil Lennon] has done that when he was there, not just Lennon, but some of their pride, they just don’t want to speak to anyone.”


Lennon’s name is still being dragged through the mud despite all he did for the club.

If Celtic were that good, and he was the problem, why did John Kennedy oversee his side get battered and tormented in the Old Firm games after he left?

There seems to be a reluctance to hand the Bears and Gerrard the tonnes of credit they deserve, but the gaffer is finally getting it.

We can’t wait for Gerrard to get his hands on the Scottish Premiership tomorrow, and it will be a testimony to all the hard work he has put in over the last three years.

The dream has been made a reality at Ibrox, and the credit must go to the boss, his players, the staff and the board; we’ve done it.
