Gerrard hungry for more

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has claimed he hopes their recent Scottish Premiership title win is the "first of many" after guiding the club to an unbeaten league campaign.

A number of Rangers players could be involved at Euro 2020 this summer, when Scotland are 2.80 to beat Czech Republic, who are 2.90 to win with the draw 2.90 in their opening match.

In a record-breaking campaign, Gerrard's Gers went into their final game of the season with Aberdeen needing to avoid defeat to complete an unbeaten season.

And Rangers, who won the Premiership title in March, got the job done in emphatic fashion, beating Aberdeen 4-0 at Ibrox.

Joe Lewis bundled in an own goal after five minutes before Kemar Roofe netted either side of the break to make it 3-0. Jermain Defoe sealed the win with a strike two minutes from the end.

Gerrard's men also matched Celtic's 107-year-old record for the most clean sheets in a Scottish top-flight campaign with the Glasgow side shipping only 13 league goals all season.

And Liverpool legend Gerrard believes this season's triumph as a manager ranks among his greatest achievements as a player.

Speaking after the Glasgow club completed their unbeaten campaign, Gerrard said: "I wanted to enjoy this moment because it's been a long time since I've smelled this success and the champagne."

Asked how it compares to his previous successes with Liverpool, he added: "It's right up there because I love winning.

"I have still got drive and hunger to achieve more. This is the first one, I hope it is the first of many."
