"In terms of management, I've tried to be a sponge and steal and learn all different things from all the managers I have played for." Rangers coach said.

Steven Gerrard

admits that the knowledge he had and passed to his players has been stolen from his managers and coaches.

Rangers

are close to winning the

Scottish Premiership

title with 79 points gained so far, standing at the top of the table, and has not suffered a defeat since 19 December 2020.

Ranger's coach then talked about the knowledge he absorbed from the previous managers he worked with and said:

“In terms of management, I've tried to be a sponge and steal and learn all different things from all the managers I have played for. “When you look at [Gerard]

Houllier

and [Rafa]

Benitez

, they were really compact managers, hard to play against, Roy Hodgson the same. [Fabio] Capello, very similar, where it's about your organisation and your shape.

“I've tapped into loads of that education throughout the Rangers journey, especially in Europe and the top games we have played domestically.

“At the same time, I've stolen stuff from Brendan Rodgers, from other managers, Sven Goran Eriksson, those type of people in terms of the style, how it looks, playing through the lines, building from the back.

“I think it is important to be yourself when you are in these roles and do it your own way but I've worked with top managers so you would be a fool not to try and steal and use their expertise for my benefit.”
