Steven Gerrard’s Rangers players have clearly been copying him after hilarious double slip

The Liverpool legend just can't escape *that* moment

They’ve clearly been studying Gerrard’s career.

Steven Gerrard is remembered by most as a Liverpool legend and Premier League stalwart.

By others however, he’s the bottlejob fraud who slipped against Chelsea and cost his boyhood club the title.

Unfortunately for poor old Gerrard, that slip is still haunting him to this day, even into his management career with Rangers.

His players have even started to remind him of that infamous moment, deciding to recreate it during their Scottish Premier League games.

Whilst addressing his Rangers squad before their clash with Motherwell, Gerrard obviously told his men to follow the example he set in his career.

Two players in particular clearly took that advice a bit too literally.

Rangers went 1-0 down inside three minutes against Motherwell, courtesy of a goal which involved two comical slips.

Gerrard won’t want to see this one again…

It looked like a simple enough ball for centre-back Connor Goldson to clear

You couldn’t make this sort of thing up.

Clearly the rain chucking down at Fir Park played a part in the comedy of errors

We like to think however that the Rangers players just did it for the banter.

Rangers twice levelled before taking the lead, only to concede a stoppage time equaliser

The goal is made more ironic after Gerrard declared in a pre-match interview that his side had “stood up to every challenge thrown at them.”

It wasn’t all gloom and doom for Rangers, as they did manage to come away with one point following the 3-3 draw.

Cheap shot, we know… just couldn’t resist.
