Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been voted Manager of the Year by the Scottish Football Writers’ Association. The appointment is a reward for the young coach who managed to lead Rangers to the title this season.

Rangers had not won the league since the 2010–11 season and it was their first title since going into administration and being relegated to the Fourth Division in 2012. Steven Gerrard and his Proteas ended nine years of Celtic hegemony over the Scottish Premiership, winning the title last March.
Having received the award given to the best coach of the competition in Scotland, the former Liverpool No.8 did not lack praise for his workforce that made this realization possible. “I am delighted to receive the Manager of the Year award. I receive it collectively with my team. It goes without saying, because we are a team. I think we have done this season as a staff team. Thank you to everyone in the press for voting for me and I certainly cherish this award,” Steven Gerrard told Scottish media.
When asked from where he gets his source and how he is managed, the former English team playwright did not hide his face. “I was put in touch with Sir Alex Ferguson through a mutual acquaintance and we exchanged numbers but I didn’t dare to send the first message, that’s for sure (smiling).

Steven Gerrard’s Rangers currently have 96 points, with 30 wins and 6 draws. They will face Livingstone on Wednesday before finishing the season at home in Aberdeen on Saturday.
