I never thought King could pull it off.That’s something that you just can’t buy, and that’s worldwide renown and respect.
How lucky are we to have this guy as our manager? I mean, seriously, how lucky are we as a club and a fanbase to see this man in our dugout leading us to glory?
I’d never thought about it like that.We’ve had the likes of Gazza, Laudrup and McCoist, instantly recognisable stars around Europe or the UK.
We now have a global superstar who IMO was only eclipsed by Beckham for worldwide following, he’s absolutely massive throughout Asia etc
Not that it’s a complete view of it but Gerrard has 9.1m Instagram followersI might have thought Rooney and maybe even Lampard and possibly Rednapp with their partners fame to include, would have been ahead.
So, I asked my wife what she thought.
Obviously, Beckham was way ahead.
Sadly though, she could allay my fears.
Maybe not Rednapp but, as a person with very little interest in football, she hadn’t really known of Gerrard before joining Rangers.
That’s because we are. Don’t need Madrid to validate.One thing I did note that despite Real Madrid being a footballing superpower their social media did seem to suggest they had enjoyed being at Ibrox and seeing our fantastic, iconic stadium. We still carry a certain gravitas as a club which is undeniable.
