Were not legends yet – Gerrard

first_imgRangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard insists he and his players are not legends yet as they stand on the brink of an European record.Victory or a draw against Spartak Moscow on Thursday in the UEFA Europa League and this current team will reach 11 successive European games unbeaten in a single season, surpassing the record set by Walter Smith’s team of 1992/93 campaign.Gerrard insists his side are nowhere near the level of the great Rangers teams of the past, however, his only concern is that the team remain top of their Europa League group at the halfway point after games against Villareal, Rapid Vienna and Spartak.Speaking about the chance to make a small slice of history, Gerrard said, according to Daily Mail:‘I wasn’t aware of that stat. It’s news to me, to be honest.Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“Milestones like that are always nice, but it’s not our focus.”“And listen, we’re not ready to be spoken about in the same breath as successful teams in the past.”“We are nowhere near ready to be put on a par with teams like that. We cannot be spoken about in the same breath as that. We have a long, long way to go.”“We are on the back of a nice run in Europe. We need to protect that and try and extend it for as long as possible. But in terms of putting us back alongside teams of ten years ago or 20 years ago then we’re not ready for that yet.”last_img read more
