Former Rangers ace Michael Ball believes that manager Steven Gerrard is still trying to improve the club’s playing style.

The Scottish giants have enjoyed an excellent start to the season and sit top of the Scottish Premiership, having taken 13 points from their opening six games of the season.

Rangers have won four, drawn one, and lost one of their opening six games, leaving them four points clear of Old Firm rivals Celtic.

Can Gerrard lead Rangers to European glory?

Yes

Yes

No

No

They have struggled somewhat in Europe, however, being knocked out of the Champions League and losing to in their opening Europa group stage game.

Still, Ball believes that Gerrard will be hoping to nail down his style and improve the club’s system as they aim to retain their title, after going unbeaten throughout the 2020/21 campaign.

He told This Is Futbol: “I’m pleased. It’s where you want to be, you want to be on top, you want to have a little bit of a gap. I think Steven and his whole team are getting used to the fans being back in the ground, the pressure from them fans to demand top each and every minute of a game.”

He added: “They can play nice at Ibrox but sometimes away from home you’ve just got to do the dirty work and get over the line, I think he feels the actual style of play he can improve on, I would think they’re still working on that.”

Gerrard’s side have already beaten in an Old Firm this season, winning 1-0 back in August.
