Celtic fans are enjoying the drama surrounding Steven Gerrard’s post-match comments after Rangers’ fixture against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Sunday, believing the pressure is already getting to the former Liverpool star.
Gerrard was left furious with the decisions during the 90 minutes of that match after Alfredo Morelos was sent off and no cards were handed out to Dominic Ball after he conceded a penalty.
Claiming ‘the world is against us today‘, the Rangers boss suggested that decisions have been going against the club for years, feeding into a narrative that referees and the SFA are out to get the Ibrox club.
There’s no doubt that the standard of Scottish refereeing is incredibly poor, but these paranoid comments are rich irony considering the abuse Hoops fans have had in the past for bringing that up.
Gerrard is clearly trying to create a siege mentality, but taking that step so early into the season all feels a bit desperate. Is he cracking under the pressure already?
These Celtic supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Whatever professionalism Steven Gerrard had brought to Rangers, he's now lost it. With this weekend's comments he's fallen into the paranoid Rangers trope. He can't be respected anymore. He'll feel all the more foolish for falling into this Joey Barton trap when he's sacked!

Fuckin hilarious. The banter years continue as Gerrard suffers a paranoid meltdown after his FIRST league game. One fuckin game in and he has lost the plot. Brilliant.
Brendan Rodgers must be relishing this season. By far the best manager in Scotland. By far!
