Steven Gerrard could be banned for Celtic vs Rangers game

Steven Gerrard faces a nervy wait as he can be banned when his Rangers side travels to Celtic Park to on the reigning Scottish champions.

It is safe to say that Steven Gerrard has raised a fair bit of controversy since arriving in Scotland as the manager of Rangers. And as things stand, he could even be banned from the touchline when his Rangers team takes on Neil Lennon’s Celtic away at Parkhead.

Obviously, this would come as a huge blow to his side as they try one more time to take Celtic down from the Scottish crown. This time though, the stakes are higher than ever for them, as the Hoops have the chance to create history this season by winning a tenth straight Scottish league title, something that has never been done before.

Naturally, the Rangers are desperate to stop their Glasgow rivals and a loss would be devastating to their homes as it will see the Hoops move 2 points clear of them while also having played a game less. Unfortunately for them, their manager might not even be allowed on the touchline to instruct them on the day.

As reported by the Daily Record, Gerrard is still waiting to learn his fate. Hilariously, his hearing was halted today due to a bad internet connection and now he faces an agonising wait till Monday.

Of course, he is facing charges after making comments against Referee Kevin Clancy following the Rangers’ game against Dundee United. On the day, Ryan Edwards was not shown a red card for a bad challenge on Alfredo Morelos and Gerrard claimed that the Colombian would have been sent off if the roles had been reversed.

This is not the only times when Gerrard has made such comments and it is more than likely an accumulation for such incidents which has forced the SFA’s hand this time around. Now, the Rangers boss waits to learn his fate heading into the biggest game of this season till now. And he just might end up watching it from the stands.
