Steven Gerrard Makes The Second Transfer Of His Managerial Career
Every cough, sneeze and nose pick of Steven Gerrard's time at Rangers is going to be scrutinised like he's never been scrutinised before and the same goes for his transfer dealings as he signs his second player for the Glaswegians already.
Rangers are a big club with a lot of fans, sure their recent history is not full of the success they've been used to but north of the border they're still the second biggest thing in football behind their bitter rivals Celtic.
As if there wasn't already many eyes on them they went and appointed Steven Gerrard as their new manager for next season. The Liverpool legend will begin his first managerial job when the current SPFL season finishes.
Because of who he is every move that Gerrard makes will be scrutinised more than any normal manager would be as everyone wonders whether his playing career will equal a good manager.
The Ibrox side have already signed Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield for next season and now they've made a second signing in Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor, who played for the Gers six years ago.

Rangers and Gerrard have a lot of work to do if they are to close the gap on Celtic at the top of the table. They finished 12 points behind their Old Firm rivals and actually ended the season third, three points behind Aberdeen.
The former Liverpool man could have a very busy summer, he best not spend too long picking his nose.
