CHRIS SUTTON has been far from impressed with Steven Gerrard’s performances since taking over as manager at Ibrox in the summer.
The former Celtic striker reckons the beleaguered Govan gaffer rates just a FOUR out of TEN for his efforts in his debut campaign in Scottish soccer.
Sutton was asked by BT Sport host Robbie Savage to deliver a verdict out of 10 for the Liverpool legend’s impact on Ibrox.
The ex-Hoops star didn’t hesitate as he fired back his answer: “Four.”
There was a gasp from the television studio audience and and the former Welsh international midfielder responded: “Wow, honestly? Four?”
Sutton replied: “He’s at a big club. He doesn’t manage a mediocre Premier League English team. It’s about winning trophies and they’re not going to win any.”
Gerrard saw his team topple out of the Scottish Cup at Ibrox on Tuesday evening when Aberdeen won the quarter-final replay 2-0 – the second time they have knocked out Gers in a competition in this campaign.
Goals from ex-Celt Niall McGinn and teenager Connor McLellan did the dame during the week and it was Lewis Ferguson who claimed the late winner to ko their hopes of reaching the Betfred League Cup Final.
The Anfield icon’s team went into this afternoon’s home Premiership confrontation with Kilmarnock eight points adrift of champions Celtic who are zeroing in on their eighth successive crown.
Gerrard’s season is practically over and, barring a disastrous slump by Neil Lennon’s outfit, the league could be as good as over when the teams meet at Parkhead on March 31.
