Celtic seem set to be crowned champions with no effort of finishing the season. However, the Gers boss wants to play Steven Gerrard believes there’s been an improper hurry to wrap up the 2019-20 soccer season in Scotland.
The Championship, League One, and League Two tables are declared last after 81 percent of the nation’s 42 senior clubs supported the Scottish Professional Football League’s (SPFL) plans.
A lot of these teams feared because of their futures end-of-season obligations, although the last call is yet to be manufactured in the top-flight, where Gerrard’s Rangers are 13 points behind competitions Celtic in the summit but could still mathematically win the league.
“For me personally and I believe everybody at Rangers was about precisely the exact same page — exactly what we desired would be to provide the best opportunity we could,” he explained.
“There was another perspective from the Premier League and also the EFL they wanted to wait and provide this year each and every opportunity to be played with.
“All of us know and admire the reality that there could grow to be a point at which isn’t possible to take place. However, there appeared to be an almighty hurry out of where we had been to complete it and get the ships in whenever possible. That did not sit well whatsoever.
“In Rangers, we wish to return playing and find the time done when it is physically secure to do this, with respect to this situation that we are in.
Now, needless to say, I am going to be biased since I am the Rangers supervisor and there is a 13-point gap, however, I wish to place as much stress on to the finish.
“In other leagues, numerous clubs had much to play and we believed there was a hurry to complete it rather than giving it the best opportunities to be completed.”
Despite progressing into the last 16 of their Europa League, in which they lost 3-1 to Bayer Leverkusen in Ibrox in their final game before lockdown, Rangers’ league type dropped in February.
That enabled Celtic to storm towards a ninth consecutive title and Gerrard admits there’s room for advancement.
“We came really near success this season at the League Cup, we’ve had success from the Europa League, however, the league has been unsatisfactory,” he added.
“It’s my job to develop solutions and answers as fast as we could to hopefully complete this year as powerful as we could and then proceed to next.”
