The first two seasons of his tenure brought much promise and progress but did not materialise in silverware.

However, this season Rangers have hit a level consistently throughout the season they could not previously sustain. They’re within two games of an unbeaten league campaign.

Cup exits have been a huge source of disappointment, but unlike in previous campaigns they have not derailed the team’s league exploits.

Like Gerrard, Klopp took time to re-establish his team as the best in the country. It took the German until his third season to win his first piece of silverware and his fourth to secure Liverpool’s much coveted Premier League title.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Gerrard has detailed some advice Liverpool manager Klopp passed on to him before he took the Rangers role that specifically addresses consistency.
