Gerrard won the title against Calum Davidson, Steve Clark and David Martindale. He was named Rangers manager in 2018 and was able to lead the team to the Scottish championship once again. He broke the league record this season and also won two derbies this season against

Celtic

. They also topped their group in the Europa League. Now Gerrard is happy to be able to take the Rangers to their 55th title in 10 years and win the title of top coach.

He told

SkySports

:

"I'm delighted to receive the award. I receive it collectively with my staff. I think that goes without saying because we are very much a team here.

"I think we have achieved the success we have this season as a team of staff and I thank all of you guys in the press for voting for me and I certainly cherish the award."

"I think I said in my first press conference that I got a feeling about this offer,"

he said.

"I felt like there was a connection to be made.

"I had admired the club from afar for many years and I had been up here and sampled the atmosphere and what the supporters were about.

"But also I had the education to know what the institution was about and what it meant to the people and it was an opportunity that I couldn't turn down."
