Liverpool great Gerrard admits split loyalties after Rangers glory: This club gripped me

Liverpool great Steven Gerrard admits he now has split loyalties after his success with Rangers.

Gerrard lifted the first league title of his career on Saturday as Rangers beat Aberdeen 4-0 to complete a superb season.

The Reds legend admitted on Saturday that he no longer considers himself a one-club man, and that Rangers now holds a special place in his heart.

"I mean, when I grew up as a kid I thought it was one club for life," he told Sky Sports.

"I've come through at Liverpool and had my career at Liverpool which I'm immensely proud of.

"I came up here with my eyes wide open to learn more about the club, I had a good idea from the outside but this has grabbed me, it's gripped me.

"It's a club like very few in the world. There's a lot of similarities with Liverpool.

"I'm happy here, I've got to make a lot of sacrifices family-wise, but I want more.

"This has given me a taste for more and I'm determined to build on it."
