Alan Hutton claims that Steven Gerrard will be struggling to pick his Rangers sides this season thanks to the “excellent” squad depth at Ibrox.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Gers defender and boyhood fan of the club believes that fans are “finally” seeing the 40-year-old’s plan take shape in Glasgow in what is his third season in charge.
Gerrard brought the likes of Kemar Roofe, Scott Arfield, Jordan Jones and Cedric Itten off the bench against Livingston on Sunday, while the likes of Alfredo Morelos, Glen Kamara, Leon Balogun and Borna Barisic were all left unused.
All eight have been regulars among the matchday squads this season, with Barisic, Kamara and Morelos arguably among those Gerrard would pick in his first-choice starting XI.
Hutton believes that the squad depth at Ibrox will be giving the Gers boss a headache week-on-week but that it is a great “problem” to have.
Hutton told Football Insider: “It just shows you how strong they are – arguably, all the ones you’ve mentioned could be starters, on another day they start the game.
