Steven Gerrard: Rangers manager shrugs off abuse as police investigate sectarian chants

Steven Gerrard insists he will not let bigots get under his skin after the Rangers boss became the latest manager to be the target of sectarian abuse.

Gerrard, the former Liverpool and England captain, was faced with cries of ‘sad orange b******s during Wednesday night’s Scottish Cup defeat by Aberdeen.

Gerrard has become the latest target of sectarian abuse

Police Scotland are investigating the matter, it has been confirmed.

The latest incident comes just three weeks after Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke reacted with fury when he was dubbed a ‘fenian b******’ by sections of the Ibrox support.

And speaking ahead of Clarke’s return to Govan for Saturday’s Premiership clash, Gerrard urged his side’s faithful to behave themselves.

Asked if he hoped the focus would remain on the action on the field this weekend, Gerrard replied: “I hope so.

“I think it was my turn against Aberdeen. But I’m fine.

“Words have never hurt me. I’ve had a lot abuse at a lot of stadiums but I’m totally fine with that.
