Barry Ferguson believes Flag Day can turn the season around for Rangers

Barry Ferguson believes that Flag Day tomorrow can motivate Rangers to kick on from their indifferent start to the season.

Speaking in his column in the Daily Record, the former Gers man claimed that Flag Day should prove to be a huge boost for Steven Gerrard’s side, and it should provide them with the motivation to kick on.

Ferguson doesn’t believe that the Gers have been that bad this season and feels like their return to top form is just around the corner.

He said: “It’s flag day at Ibrox tomorrow. And let me tell you, the memories of raising that champions sign in front of 50,000 fans are among the proudest of my career.

“I just hope James Tavernier and every one of Steven Gerrard’s heroes from last season soak in the moment.

“And then do what I did – use it as a burning motivation to ensure they are right back there doing the same in a year’s time.

“Every single time I watched that flag getting hoisted into the Govan sky as captain or otherwise was special.

“It was the moment you realised how proud you had made all those people in the stadium and beyond.

Ferguson bang on the money.

This is a good column from Ferguson, who takes a much more positive outlook on how the Bears have started the season.

They are top of the SPFL table, having won four of their first five games.

However, in Europe, they have struggled, which has perhaps led to people looking at the start of the season more negatively.

Ferguson makes some great points here, and we can’t wait to see the atmosphere tomorrow as the Gers unveil a new flag commemorating the 2020/21 season.

Hopefully, when the players see this, they are even more motivated to achieve the exact same thing this year and try to create a dynasty in Scotland.

The Gers have not been brilliant in Europe, but apart from one defeat in the league, they have had a strong start domestically, and we wouldn’t be surprised if Ferguson’s prediction turns out to be correct, and the Gers hit top form soon.
