With Rangers in a brilliant league position heading into 2020, fans will be praising the work of Steven Gerrard. He has inspired his team to compete with their Old Firm rivals, winning the last meeting between the two teams last weekend.
But this success may never have happened if it wasn’t for Gerrard’s arrival. According to reports, Derek McInnes was on the verge of joining the Gers before he rejected the position (The Times). Rangers fans reacted to the news with relief. They think they dodged a massive bullet.
A big decision in terms of how Rangers progressed from that moment. #ThankYouDerek

Was never so happy in my life for someone to reject us

The best thing that ever happened

Some fans call McInnes a serial runner up. They don’t think they could have ever closed the gap on Celtic with him at the helm.
This will go down as one of the biggest moments for us getting back to where we belong. Missing out on a serial runner up.

What do we think?
While the players have been a huge part of Rangers’ current success, the tactics employed by Steven Gerrard have been a huge contributor (FootballBH). Fans will be thankful for McInnes’ decision to bypass the opportunity to manage the club.
