As the air thickens over 2018 World Cup tomorrow, new Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has said it is “time to walk the walk” after completing his first day on the job.

The former England captain and now manager spent Wednesday in meetings at Ibrox, before leaving with assistant manager Gary McAllister shortly before 5 pm.

“It is a huge club and I am very excited but now it is time to work and stop talking – it is time to walk the walk,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.

“It was the first day so [there were] a lot of meetings and a lot of people to meet. [I am] getting used to the environment and the people within it.

“I do not want to say too much. It is time to get to work now.”

The transfer market has been flooded with Rangers links as Gerrard seeks to build a club capable of challenging Celtic.
