Brendan Rodgers gets it all wrong as Rangers win derby

Brendan Rodgers gets it all wrong as Rangers win derby

Since hanging up his boots in two years later, Gerrard has gone on to take charge of Scottish giants Rangers in his first step on the managerial ladder, but the former England worldwide claims there is no reason he should be considered as Jürgen Klopp's eventual successor.

Brendan Rodgers admitted Celtic were second best in the Old Firm derby and said he hopes to bring new players to the club in January after Ryan Jack's goal earned Rangers a 1-0 win at Ibrox. They've been punished in these fixtures recently so this is all about them.

"I think on the day, Rangers were better than us, unfortunately, and we didn't have a good game", he told Celtic's official website. We weren't at our best. But what we have shown today is that when we find a level then we are more than a match for them'.

Rangers made a bright start and forced two excellent Craig Gordon saves, the goalkeeper denying Daniel Candeias - whose effort deflected off Callum McGregor's arm - before producing a fingertip stop to keep out Connor Goldson's header.

But Gerrard was careful not to get carried away and added: "Look, there's still a lot of improvement and growing needed from us, but we need to take confidence and belief from that performance".

"We've a lot of work to do in terms of our game", said Rodgers.

While the title was not necessarily their ambition for this campaign, they are set to push Celtic all the way this season, with the Hoops finding themselves in a title race for the first time in a number of years. But today is about the supporters.

"They've waited a long time for an Old Firm victory".

Scott Arfield starred in a midfield role for Gerrard's side and the Canada global hailed his team's derby win.

Former Gers winger Neil McCann, watching in the Sky Sports studio, agreed a home victory was well deserved and gave kudos to Gerrard for his set-up.

"I'm just looking forward to getting back fit, playing games and playing football again".

But first I want to know what he has found to be the biggest difference between being captain of one of Britain's biggest clubs to managing.
