Gerrard denies claiming Gers are on brink of title
Steven Gerrard has denied claiming his Rangers side are on the brink of a title triumph - but insists the Ibrox side are willing to put up a fight.
Former Gers striker and TV pundit Andy Gray was quoted on Tuesday suggesting Gerrard had made that bold prediction when they met after Sunday's friendly trouncing of Marseille.
Gray said the former Liverpool skipper had informed him that he was "absolutely convinced there's a title in" his Rangers side and that could happen "this year".
But the Ibrox boss issued a strong rebuttal - insisting he would never be so rash as to make such bold claims before a season has even started.
"I'm not sure where that's come from because I've never spoken to Andy Gray about winning the league," he said. "That's never come out of my mouth."
