Rangers boss Gerrard: I was a Kanchelskis fan, but...

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has admitted his admiration for Ibrox hero Andrei Kanchelskis.

Gerrard revealed the only downside to the Russian's career was that he didn't play for Liverpool.

“Yes, I watched him a lot," he said.

“He was a fantastic player, but unfortunately he was fantastic for Manchester United and Everton against Liverpool.

"But he's a player I have enormous respect for and looked up to because he was very quick and a very exciting player.

“So I got on very well with a fantastic player.

“And also he did very well for Rangers as well."
