Former Rangers player has recently aired his thoughts on the Gers’ manager Steven Gerrard.

The 40-year-old Liverpool legend has been situated at Stadium for two years now since his arrival during the summer of 2018 (per Transfermarkt).

During his time with the club, the Englishman has overseen 119 matches, winning 72, drawing 28 and losing 19 of them.

Halliday was a Rangers player working under Gerrard until he departed from the earlier this summer (per Transfermarkt).

So, in the latest episode of the Open Goal podcast, Halliday made an appearance and discussed what it was like to work under Gerrard.

Rangers fan? We bet you can't get 100% in this Rangers 2019/20 season quiz. First up, which French side did Rangers beat at 4-0 in a pre-season friendly?

He said: “I think you get that at a lot of clubs, though, where your assistant manager/first-team coach tends to take a lot [of the coaching]. Gerrard’s more the disciplinarian.

“He’s got that aura and presence. So, he doesn’t say a lot but when he says something, it carries.

“I think, you’re going into every single game, there’s just a clear instruction but every player knows their role – you know exactly what they want you to do.

“Every single week it’s the exact same, no matter who you’re playing. It’ll change, but going into every single game you know exactly what’s expected of you and the training’s enjoyable, which obviously always helps.”

TIF Thoughts…

As can be seen in what Halliday had to say, he evidently enjoyed the time that he spent working under Gerrard.

Do you think Steven Gerrard will win silverware with Rangers?

No, he's not good enough

No, he's not good enough

Yes, he's a good manager

Hopefully, for the Gers, Gerrard’s methods translate into trophies sometime soon, as he is yet to win any silverware as manager of the Glasgow-based club (per Transfermarkt).
