PAUL GASCOIGNE insists Steven Gerrard will be a winner as Rangers manager.

Gazza, who won two titles in his Ibrox career, reckons the 37-year-old Liverpool legend’s enthusiasm and past success make him an ideal appointment.

The former England international maverick said: “It’s fantastic for both Steven and Rangers. What a club it is – it’s massive.

“I loved my years there, can never get those years back. It’s great that they’ve got him on board.

“Steven is a leader, he’s a winner and the players will feel that and they’ll want to react to that.

“He is going up there and he will definitely achieve something. I’m so excited for him and what a great start for him.

“The good thing is that he’s young, he’s eager and he is keen. Above all, he’s a winner.

“When you’ve got fans like that behind you, nothing is a risk. Believe me, if you’re having a bad game it just gives you another lift.

“He’s going to have the bonus of an unbelievable crowd behind him.”
