Gerrard fires dig at Man Utd when comparing derby matches

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has aimed at dig at Manchester United when comparing the Old Firm derby with Liverpool’s meetings against the Red Devils.

Gerrard‘s team dominated the last meeting of the Glasgow giants at Hampden earlier this month but watched on with stunned disbelief as Christopher Jullien’s controversial winner stole the Betfred Cup for Celtic.

And the teams meet again in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday with Rangers five points behind their rivals but with a game in hand.

“There are many similarities but it’s not necessarily a derby match as it’s Liverpool v Manchester,” Gerrard said when asked about comparisons between Rangers vs Celtic and Liverpool vs United.

“The rivalry comes from being the two most successful teams in England so that’s a similarity to the Old Firm.

“I think the Liverpool v Everton derby match is more similar in terms of the bitterness, the hatred and the bragging rights in the local community.

“Manchester’s 40 minutes to an hour away and obviously Manchester United are not at the top of the table anymore so that’s another difference for you.”
