Steven Gerrard's first Rangers XI: Where are they now? Old Firm hero, £30m rated defender, Euros man

What happened to Rangers starting XI from Steven Gerrard’s first game in charge at Ibrox?

Believe it or not, but it is almost exactly six years to the day that Steven Gerrard took charge of his first competitive game at Rangers.

Remember it? Let us jog your memory. To be exact, the game took place on Thursday 12 July 2018 and saw the Light Blues face Macedonian outfit Shkupi at Ibrox, with the Liverpool icon tasked with steering his team to a first leg Europa League qualifying win in Glasgow.

He did just that too, winning the game 2-0 thanks a first half strike from Jamie Murphy and an injury time penalty from Gers skipper James Tavernier. Gerrard’s side would achieve a 0-0 draw a week later to secure a safe passage through to the next stage of the European competition.

But what happened to the Rangers squad from that day - and where are they now six years on?
