Liverpool great Dalglish: Rangers fans have every right to feel betrayed by Gerrard

Liverpool great Sir Kenny Dalglish says Rangers fans have every right to feel let down by Steven Gerrard.

Former Reds captain Gerrard quit Rangers to charge of Aston Villa last week.

“In the days since Steven Gerrard left Rangers for Aston Villa, I don't think the anger from the Rangers fans has subsided any," Dalglish wrote in his Sunday Post column.

“They have every right to be disappointed and hurt.

"They feel let down and betrayed, and the range of emotions we've witnessed on social media are fully understandable.

“Many of them are still feeling very raw, and I can see why they are feeling dejected. One reason is the timing of Steven's departure.

“He has left in mid-season, with a League Cup semi-final with Hibs and a huge Europa League tie against Sparta Prague on the horizon.

“And after the Europa League win over Brondby recently, when pressed live on TV about speculation around him moving to Newcastle United, he stated he was happy at the club.

“But he couldn't control when another club came in for him. Aston Villa made their move and he was persuaded to move back down south.

“Football is all about moving from here to there. It has always happened, and it will continue to happen."
