It was a monumental shift put in by GIGPOD HQ, but after a whirlwind 48 hours, the news was official earlier today......Steven Gerrard, is away.
Now while this is a Celtic site, with very little focus on Rangers, we’ll take you through the events of how the dramatic tale unfolded.
Two days ago, amid rampant speculation the COVIDBALL champion was bottling it from Ange, Chris ‘Union’ Jack reported that the rumour had legs.
The Daily Record then provided a good laugh with their backup shout if he chucked it.
Poisonous yet popular Rangers fan site Follow Follow went into full scale denial mode, even though journalists in England very connected with the clubs they report on behalf of are nothing like the incompetent buffoons in Scotland. Nevertheless, we were treated to this belter.
Sky Sports got in on the act, confirming that the rumours were indeed solid.

All the while, we worked hard in the background, making sure our men on the inside such as Fabrizio ‘Corky’ Romano and Derek Clark were checking all sources.

The FANS started to feel that the iconic ‘away’ line could be used in conjunction with a certain WANTAWAY rival gaffer.

Final details to be sorted and then Gerrard is expected to join Aston Villa as new manager.
Bang on 10:00, an hour before the silence for remembrance day, the words were uttered:
Steven Gerrard away https://t.co/QomCF6xb3G— Glasgow is Green Podcast ⚪️ (@gigpod) November 11, 2021
What a day.
Angelos, pile on the misery after the international break.
WE WELCOME THE CHASE..............when we go top of the league of course.
