Rangers boss Steven Gerrard looking the part – Fans reckon “levels” above his Celtic counterpart

Rangers fans just can’t stop rubbing the handsomeness of their manger on their Celtic counterparts

Footballing rivalries are no joke. Greater the rivalry greater the banter amongst fans.

Fans leave absolutely no stone unturned when it comes to putting down their rivals.

The Celtic-Rangers rivalry – referred as the “Old Firm” – is one of the biggest in modern football.

The 2 Scottish giants often compete against the other on various fronts and it seems Rangers fans have taken the charge this time with hilarious comparisons between the managers of the two sides. Check out the tweets below –

Steven Gerrard was appointed as the new Rangers boss last season. The Liverpool legend is quite the fashionista and even launched his own fashion label SGG Apparel in November last year.

So it’s no surprise that his dressing sense seems to be often on point and definitely camera/paparazzi ready.

For example, he and his staff looked quite dapper in the Rangers tour of Portugal (Twitter).

On the other hand, while Neil Lennon might’ve won several titles with Celtic his dressing sense is well, a little old fashioned.

Adidas hits it out of the park with a sensational ad featuring Liverpool star Mo Salah

The voice captivating and the picture spellbinding, an absolute thing of beauty Adidas has created, just like the Reds last season.

Titled  “Mo Salah | Create Your Own Ending”, Adidas released an advert as soon as Liverpool lifted the Champions League in Madrid for the sixth time.

But it was in Anfield where the real magic happened. When the Reds came back against Barcelona to win 4-0, what went down to be one of the greatest comebacks in the history of this beautiful game.

Something mesmerising and similar to what had happened in Istanbul back in 2005 when the flagbearer of that win and their legendary captain Steven Gerrard brought home the Champions League after 21 long years.

“Steven Gerrard and Mo Salah know what it takes to make a proper comeback in the UEFA Champions League”  – wrote Adidas Football.

We can see it in the comment section which is filled with the writings about the hope that Salah has provided to the people back in his own country and neighbouring countries that are caught up in violence and poverty.

Narrating the herculean journey throughout this European campaign, Steven Gerrard walks us through by telling what it takes to make a comeback at this level.

The injury & defeat that brought grief & agony to Mohamed Salah and Liverpool after their loss against Real Madrid did indeed play a part.

It took something special to have faith and have a go again, except this time ‘you create your own ending.’

Cameras caught Stevie G refusing to make eye contact with Neil Lennon after the Old Firm derby

Defeat is a bitter pill to swallow. In a game of football, nobody wants to end up on the losing side. Right from a  young age, aspiring footballers are trained to win; that winning mentality is instilled in them. So when one team wins, the other must accept the harsh reality of defeat.

Accepting this can be hard, especially when you lose to your arch rivals. Why? Because it’s a matter of pride, a matter of bragging rights, and last but not the least: not hearing the end of it from rival fans. All these together result in a “living hell” for the losing team.

Celtic Park, March 31, 2019. The final whistle has just been blown and Celtic are 2-1 victors over Rangers, in the latest installment of the Old Firm derby.

The game lived up to its expectations: goals, cards and controversy. It was nothing short of dramatic. The post-match scenes seemed to go out of control, with both sets of players involved in a brawl and Rangers’ Halliday seeing red.

Another incident that may have flown under the radar, given the chaos that spread between the players after the full-time whistle, is one involving the managers of both clubs.

At the full-time whistle, there is brief moment between Rangers manager Steven Gerrard and Celtic boss Neil Lennon, caught on television coverage. The clip shows Gerrard, who appears to refuse making eye contact with Lennon as the two shake hands in post-match formalities.

In a gesture that has infuriated Celtic fans, Gerrard’s refusal to make any eye-contact can only be viewed as disrespectful by Celtic fans. Some fans dubbed him as “a sore loser”. Since this incident, the Rangers boss has accepted a one-match touchline ban for comments made to the referee in the aftermath of the loss.

Everyone knows that accepting defeat is difficult, especially in a fixture like the Glasgow derby. Nobody likes losing, the same way nobody likes a sore loser. Gerrard seemed to have acted inappropriately and against the true spirit of the game. Was Gerrard right in the way he acted following his side’s defeat?
