Steven Gerrard Branded 'Arrogant' And 'Disrespectful' For His Post-Match Interview
Steven Gerrard's post-match interview didn't go down well on social media.
Rangers beat St. Johnstone 2-1 thanks to an Alfredo Morelos brace. The Colombian bagged two goals in the second-half to seal three vital league points.
Gerrard's side came from behind to clinch victory and he wasn't at all pleased with his team's effort in the first-half, calling it 'awful'.
But people are taking exception with another line from his post-match interview.
"We shouldn't have to work that hard to win at places like this, with all due respect," he said to BT Sport.

"They were the ones who looked like they fancied a title race."
Steven Gerrard's honesty and no nonsense approach is becoming a staple of his management style...
