Rangers Have Been Ready To Move On From Steven Gerrard Since He Began Complaining About A lack Of Transfer Funds…

Long before Aston Villa terminated Dean Smith on Sunday and made their move, there was a sense that Steven Gerrard’s exit from Rangers was inevitable.

After a summer in which the Ibrox club invested nothing on new players for the man who had just delivered their first trophy in ten years, the writing was on the wall. Juninho Bacuna, John Lundstram, and Fashion Sakala were the only three Bosman free transfers to arrive.

As a result, Gerrard has cut a gloomy figure since the start of the season, which has been mirrored by his team’s poor performances. After consecutive Europa League defeats by Lyon and Sparta Prague at the start of October, he publicly expressed his worries for the first time.

So Gerrard was always going to jump ship as soon as the ideal Premier League project presented itself this season – Newcastle’s was too risky, but Villa’s fit perfectly – and a gushing statement from Rangers and the reaction of their fans when the move was confirmed suggests they all knew it.

‘Gerrard transfers to the Midlands club after playing a crucial role in the great progress of the Light Blues in various areas during his three-and-a-half years at Ibrox,’ said the statement proudly.

‘Personally, I am proud of the job that we have done together, along with all of the players and staff, and I know Steven shares that pride,’ sporting director Ross Wilson added, adding to the idea that Gerrard had gone as far as he could with Rangers. We wish Steven all the best in his upcoming phase.’
