Steven George Gerrard MBE (born 30 May 1980) is an English professional football manager and former player who manages Scottish Premiership club Rangers.
He spent the majority of his playing career as a central midfielder for Liverpool, with most of that time spent as club captain, as well as captaining the England national team. Widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time,
Gerrard was awarded the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year award in 2005, and the Ballon d'Or Bronze Award. In 2009, Zinedine Zidane and Pelé said that they considered Gerrard to be the best footballer in the world.
Charlie Nicholas has backed Rangers to see off Antwerp because "they know how to get results in Europe". But the pundit believes they will have to avoid one of the Europa League's big guns if they are to better their run to the last 16 last season.
Steven Gerrard will be in confident mood ahead of the return leg with the Belgians after last week's bonkers 4-3 win on away soil.
Rangers are now the red-hot favourites to advance and Nicholas believes an extended run is perfect preparation ahead of their tilt at the Champions League next season.Read more on dailyrecord.co.uk
