Steven Gerrard has done a tremendous job at Rangers since taking charge of the Scottish giants in the summer.

The gulf in class between Rangers and Celtic was huge last season - but as we approach the halfway stage of the 2018-19 campaign, Gerrard’s men are currently above their fierce Glasgow rivals in the Scottish Premiership table.

In fact, Rangers temporarily climbed to the top of the Scottish Premiership following their 2-1 victory over Hearts on Sunday - a magnificent achievement by Gerrard, his coaching staff and his players.

They had a chance to retain their place at the top of the table on Wednesday night against Aberdeen.

However, the Gers suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat at Ibrox, with Scott McKenna scoring the game’s only goal on the seventh minute.

Rangers might have found an equaliser had Alfredo Morelos not been sent off midway through the second half - his third red card of the campaign.

"I spoke to my team on discipline and control," Gerrard was quoted as saying by BBC Sport after the match. "It's time the players [played] tough, competing, but doing it fair and staying on the pitch."

Rangers now find themselves second in the Scottish Premiership table, level on points with Celtic and one behind league-leaders Kilmarnock.

It was undoubtedly a huge missed opportunity for Gerrard and his players.

On Thursday morning, former Celtic striker Chris Sutton couldn’t resist sharing an amusing tweet about Gerrard to his 152,000 followers on Twitter.

Sorry, Rangers fans, but that is pretty funny.

The suggestion is that the Gers have fallen so far in recent years that spending a few days at the top of the Scottish Premiership is now a DVD-worthy achievement.

Needless to say, Celtic fans were all left cracking up in the replies after Sutton brought the light-hearted tweet to their attention…

In fairness to Sutton, he does point out on his tweet that Gerrard has done a ‘fantastic job’ as Rangers manager so far.

But, never one to miss a chance to mock Rangers, the Scottish football pundit has raised a few smiles on Celtic fans’ faces.
