Steven Gerrard is on the verge of cementing hero status at Rangers as he looks set to deliver the club’s first league title in a decade.
Those ten years have been a turbulent time for the club that saw them enter insolvency, get relegated to the Third Division before climbing back up to the Scottish Premiership.
During their absence, Celtic dominated Scottish football winning nine consecutive titles, including the treble treble.
But the former Liverpool midfielder could usher in a new period of dominance for the Gers with their rivals in disarray.
Neil Lennon has walked away from the job with his side 18 points behind and Rangers on the verge of winning the league in the Old Firm derby.
“I can’t say I’m surprised because of obviously what’s been going on over there,” Gerrard said on Wednesday.
“But I take no personal satisfaction from seeing that news (happen) to Neil or any other fellow manager that happens to. So I wish him well for the future.
“I only really found out about it this morning but obviously the focus for me is on the game tomorrow.”
Rangers fans will no doubt be enjoying what they are seeing happen to their rivals after seeing their dominance for so long.
Here at talkSPORT.com, we’ve taken a look at exactly why Ranges fan love Steven Gerrard.
Stopping Celtic’s 10-in-a-row
10-in-a-row really matters for both Rangers and Celtic. Both clubs have won nine consecutive titles in the past but neither has managed to reach the illusive double figures.
It comes down to bragging rights more than anything.
Celtic first did between 1966 and 1974 but failed to win the tenth while the Gers went for their tenth back in 1997 with a side that included Ally McCoist, Paul Gascoigne and Brian Laudrup and came up short.
Stopping that Celtic tenth title will mean a lot to Rangers fans.
Bringing 55th title
Rangers have been stuck on 54 titles for some time and have seen their rivals creep up on their record.
Celtic are on 51 and they were getting a little too close for comfort for their rival’s liking.
Matching unbeaten season
Rangers have been utterly dominant this season and there have been comparisons to Brendan Rodgers’ Invincibles from the 2016/17 season.
His Celtic side went unbeaten that season and smashed numerous records along the way.
Gerrard may have a few of those records in his sights, including the unbeaten one.
Rangers have won 26 and drawn four of their 30 games played so far this season.
Exciting style of play
The Gers have not just been grinding out the results, they’ve been doing it in some style.
It has been built from a defence that has conceded just nine times this season, which in itself is an incredible feat.
They’ve also scored 73, averaging at around 2.5 goals per game.
Remarkably, it is Rangers’ right-back, James Tavernier, who is their top scorer this season with 11 goals and nine assists.
The goals have been largely shared around with Kemar Roofe on ten and Alfredo Morelos on eight.
Scottish teams haven’t faired well in Europe over recent seasons by Gerrard’s side have bucked the trend with some strong performances.
They finished top of their Europa League group ahead of Benfica and have the advantage in their round of 32 match with Antwerp.
The away leg ended 4-3 to Rangers ahead of the return leg at Ibrox on Thursday.
