This Rangers Winger Is Right In Claiming Gerrard’s Men Cannot Win The League Unless They Do This

Rangers went through a significant overhaul of the squad in the summer along with a change in manager. That has brought a whole new level of optimism at the club, and one can say that Steven Gerrard has definitely improved and delivered with the goods so far as they have lost just twice under his management.

However, one thing that the Gers are struggling even under Gerrard is their away record. Rangers’ last away win came in February, and young winger Glenn Middleton acknowledged the fact that as long as they don’t start winning away, they are unlikely to challenge for the title.

The young winger was quoted as saying,”We have shown we can do it at home and now we need to show we can do it away from home. We will have one game where everything will just click and we will take it from there. I don’t think it’s anything to be worried about.

”We are working as hard as we can every single week. When we are playing at home, teams are intimidated to come to Ibrox now. We have made it a bit of a fortress for teams to come to. When we come out of the tunnel and we hear the fans are all up for it then it gets us up for it as well. It gives us that bit more of an edge to perform.”

Getting the first away win would help the Gers take that monkey off their back. The team would have an excellent chance to finally get that win as they will take on Hamilton next after the international break away from home. If the players can manage to replicate the performances they showed in the last two games, one can expect an away win finally.

The Light Blues have shown that on their day, they can take on anyone and beat them but they need to summon the powers of Ibrox within themselves when they play away from home as a top team cannot just rely on winning home fixtures.

Gerrard has the quality and depth at his disposal where they can have a good domestic run as long as they can win 5-6 games in a row. If the Gers want to challenge for the title, that run needs to come right after the international break as they are already sixth on the table and cannot afford to slip up any further.

The Teddybears also have to take care of the Europa League ties but a top team shouldn’t be using midweek games as an excuse for a substandard performance on the weekend. Having signed as many as 15 players in the summer, the squad has the necessary depth and they definitely can overturn their woeful away record soon.
