Gerrard reaction when we won the last old firm

Looking back it wasn't a really good idea considering what we know now but I defy any of you to say you wouldn't have celebrated exactly the same given the circumstances. I'd have gone further in fact.

It's easy to just on him in hindsight but at the time it was brilliant and there's a lot to be said for living in the moment

Mad thread, who cares if the tarriers are lapping it up, at the time it was a sheer burst of emotion and I loved it at the moment and was myself doing much worse. No bearing at all on how we are playing now.

It was OTT. It was a big win (at the time) but, as has been proved, it is meaningless on its own. We moan about teams like the sheep and Killie celebrating when they beat us like they’ve won a cup yet our own manager did exactly the same thing at the piggery. I hope he’s now thoroughly embarrassed and will learn a lesson.
Thoroughly embarassed? Really?

Oh %^*& off with this pish, they've been rubbing it in our face at Ibrox and Parkhead for years, look at them including Lennon after the 1st game at Ibrox.

OTT at the time.

Majorly embarrassing now.

And you just know Lennon or Brown is going to do it to the nearest camera as a GIRFUY when they seal the league.
Away you go, it happened seconds after a bust up between the 2 benches when his coach was sent off and we'd just won there for the 1st time in a decade and had witnessed and overcome one of the most ridiculous refereeing performances you'll ever see and adrenaline was pumping, OTT my arse.

Your argument being that we should act the same way as the tarriers?

No thanks. I'd prefer our club to have a bit of dignity

This has become really tiresome.

Let's stop underplaying it. It's no different to the Tims and their various laps of honour over the years after any victory over a poor Rangers side. Why some of us and the media continue to scrutinise that reaction against a context of us having won nothing yet is sad.

It was our first win at a ground we hadn't won at in 10 years and in doing so got us back into a credible position to challenge.

Im guessing everyone calling him an embarrassment were all level headed when the full time whistle blew when we won there for the first time in nearly a decade and put ourselves in a great position to mount a serious title challenge?

Feck me, the ones claiming it was OTT were 100% not thinking that at the time. If you claim you were then you are talking crap.

He felt the way the rest of us felt. It was brilliant to see a manager who cared and got it, something we hadn't seen in many years.
The reason he celebrated so much is because a major psychological barrier had been lifted and nothing to do with winning the league,it's been a long time coming so every reason to celebrate but no one was ever claiming that it was a given,from fans,maybe one or two players should've kept their mouths shut.

People comparing the fans reactions to the managers are being daft.

As a manager, if you're going to lose the head and run the length of the pitch going mental you need to follow it up with results.

The manager froze on Wednesday night and watched the game and the title slip away.. of course he looks stupid.

If it was rolls revered we'd be ripping the piss out if them for that celebration then going on to drop 8 points in 6 games.

Huge difference between being a fan and being the manager of Rangers.

I dont think I've ever seen any successful Rangers manager celebrate like that after winning a trophy never mind winning a game.

He lost his head which is fine but when you run the length of the pitch jumping about like a mad man you better be able to back it up.

He wasnt so animated as both the game and the league title were slipping away on Wenesday night.. in fact he froze and done fu.ck all about it.
You haven't been watching very closely then.

Can't understand the manager getting stick for that celebration. If he'd just clapped the fans then disappeared down the tunnel, the same people would probably be saying he didn't show enough passion.
We’ve gone from ‘he gets it’ to ‘he gets it a little too much for my liking’ in 4 weeks. Mental on here at times.

I personally watched more replays of his reaction than the goals

Clearly you didn’t see Walter running down the touch line celebrating a goal v them at Ibrox ( among many others )

Do you go to many games ?

It's not even comparible.. Walter ran 10 yards and celebrated in the Enclosure.

My point is Gerrard now looks daft, if you're going to celebrate like that make sure you back it up.

Look at Brown v Diuof.. he looked like a right fa.nny.

And yes I got most games.

No its not, my argument is that our manager is allowed to celebrate a win at Parkhead and its utterly fucking ridiculous given the circumstances directly prior to it to criticise, so away and give yourself peace.

I haven’t said he wasn’t allowed to celebrate. Do you have literacy issues which your school is failing to address?

Teams are entitled to celebrate however they want, people moaning about celebrations are wet wipes. Gerrard was well within his rights to celebrate like that

The day you can’t celebrate a win like that is the day I give up watching football.

I don't blame him for that celebration. We all did the same. You'd have to be 1 stoic bastard not to get carried away with that result & performance.

The players should know better after the meltdown after last seasons winter break though. There's other issues at hand for our downfall. That celebration isn't 1 IMO.
You also have to be clutching at straws to in any way link that celebration to Killie.

He got it wrong tactically and the players and ref got it spectacularly wrong. Period.

Don't get me wrong, at the time I was loving it. It oozed how much he cared, I think it was also a massive out Flow if relief knowing that season was very much game on.

In hindsight, it really did send the wrong message to the players. It was more like a cup final win reaction. Told the players we've achieved our goal when the job was so far from done.

Personalally, I'm on the fence about him staying on next season. He's taken us forward immensely, but a league win is the only thing that matters. I think getting a new manager will be too much change on what is last chance saloon to stop 10iar, but also feel Gerrard still lacks that experience maintain a challenge for a full season.
That’s crap about Gerrard’s reaction. It just showed how much it meant to him.

Next you’ll be saying Lennon was handed extra motivation because Gerrard didn’t shake his hand properly at full time
