Gerrard and Rangers' early title win has disguised their faults.. Kent and Morelos have been poor, says Charlie Nicholas

CHARLIE NICHOLAS reckons Rangers' early title win has hidden their deficiencies this season.

And the ex-Celtic man claims Steven Gerrard has a MASSIVE summer ahead.


Gers romped to their first league championship in a decade last month after destroying the Hoops' dreams of 10 in a row.

Rangers – who also reached the Europa League last 16 – are three games away from completing an unbeaten Premiership campaign, but were knocked out of both the Scottish Cup and Betfred Cup.

Stars such as Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos have earned huge plaudits this season but Nicholas doesn't buy into that.

He said: "Rangers have now choked in both cup competitions.

"Winning the Premiership title as easily as they did disguised a lot of their faults.

"Many of the Ibrox players have downed tools since becoming champions.

"Yes, they knocked Celtic out of the Scottish Cup the weekend before last, but the hard work isn't done until you finish the season and pick up the trophies.

"Steven Gerrard must be scratching his head. The Rangers manager still has so much to do and improve at Ibrox to make things right.

"If you look at this campaign, Rangers' best players have been their defenders or goalkeeper.

"Ryan Kent hasn't had a good season. Alfredo Morelos has been poor too.

"Gerrard will need to freshen up his squad this summer. He has a massive job on his hands."
