Former Rangers and Liverpool star Charlie Adam believes that Steven Gerrard is the right man for the Gers.

Steven Gerrard’s side are currently second in the Scottish Premiership with 13 points behind the league leaders Celtic.

“There’s always pressure at Rangers, but it gets scrutinised if you lose a game,” Adam said, as quoted by the Daily Record.

“Since the New Year, the performances have dropped and he knows the levels they’re at are not what they were in the first half of the season.

“I believe he’s the right man for the job. He’s had pressure since he was 18. This isn’t different to him. The only difference is it is in management. He has to pick up his players every week and he’s got to keep going and hoping that the performances will turn.

“He’ll be disappointed. Do I say it is failure? It’s disappointment. When he set out he would probably have thought he’d have won one or two trophies by now but that’s the disappointment he’s got to take as a Rangers manager.

“You’ve got to keep going as long as you can, but as far as he knows and wants to do, he’ll carry on and try and get that trophy. Does it look likely this season? Probably not but then we go again next season and try and stop Celtic winning 10 in a row.”
