Steven George Gerrard MBE (born 30 May 1980) is an English professional football manager and former player who manages Scottish Premiership club Rangers.
He spent the majority of his playing career as a central midfielder for Liverpool, with most of that time spent as club captain, as well as captaining the England national team. Widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time,
Gerrard was awarded the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year award in 2005, and the Ballon d'Or Bronze Award. In 2009, Zinedine Zidane and Pelé said that they considered Gerrard to be the best footballer in the world.
Neil Francis Lennon (born 25 June 1971) is a Northern Irish football coach and former player who is the manager of Scottish Premiership club Celtic. During his playing career he represented English clubs Manchester City, Crewe Alexandra and Leicester City.
Lennon moved to Scottish club Celtic in 2000, where he made over 200 appearances and was appointed captain in 2005. Before retiring as a player, he returned to England and played for Nottingham Forest and Wycombe Wanderers. Lennon made 40 appearances for Northern Ireland in nine years, scoring two goals. Lennon was appointed manager of Celtic in March 2010, initially in a caretaker capacity after the departure of Tony Mowbray.
Neil Lennon 's side drop just two more points and the Ibrox men keep winning. While Celtic 's stand-in manager Gavin Strachan refused to throw in the towel after the 0-0 draw with Livingston, it's clearly a question of when not if the Light Blues win the title.
Steven Gerrard's side can extend the gap to 23 points if they win at Motherwell on Sunday and even with three games in hand there's surely no way back for the reigning champions.
It doesn't look like a title race that's going to go to the wire and that will be perhaps the most galling thing for Celtic fans who started the season dreaming of 10 In A Row.On the other side of the city the calculators will be out seeing when the coronation will take place after a long wait for the league.Read more on dailyrecord.co.uk
