are only nine wins away from claiming the Scottish Premiership trophy. This will be the club’s first league title in the past decade but there is little hope that supporters can celebrate this achievement in the team’s stadium due to COVID-19 restrictions. However,

hopes that his team’s celebration would be different from what he saw when Liverpool won the Premier League trophy last season.

“It’s not ideal but it’s where the world is right now,

“We really feel for the supporters not being able to come and watch the team.

“They follow us near and far. They’ve done that for many years before I came here.

“We’re trying to do them proud as much as we can. From game to game we’ll keep trying to do them proud.

“We know they’re with us in a different way but we have to accept where the world is right now.

“It’s fantastic to see the (virus) numbers are improving and dropping.

“Hopefully at some point in the near future it will be safe to return them because they play such a big part here.

“That’s what this club has been built on and what it’s about — the fantastic support.

“We want them back as soon as possible.”

Asked about his team’s spectacular performance in their 5-0 win over

Ross County

on Saturday, Gerrard responded:

“It’s fantastic to have two goals from set pieces, two headed goals from the centre-backs and a clean sheet,”

“The Jack goal I thought was our best goal because it was a team goal and it’s what we work for every day in terms of style.

“Joe Aribo is back for real when he’s scoring goals like that. He’s out at the corner flag and then he’s putting it in the top corner. That’s what we all know he’s capable of.

“To have five different scorers is always fantastic but that has been the case since the beginning of the season.

“We’re not heavily reliant on just the one person.

“That’s where we needed to get to as a group because, over the course of 60 games, it doesn’t work if you’re just relying on one or two.”
