Steven Gerrard blasted referee Steven McLean following his decision to not award Rangers a free kick prior to Hibernian’s equaliser in a 1-1 draw on Friday.
Steven Gerrard's interview approach is pretty simple…
Say it as it is! 👀😐

The Gers are desperately chasing Celtic in the Scottish Premiership but after dropping two points against Hibs they now sit eight points adrift with four games remaining in the first phase.
Gerrard’s men travel to Celtic Park at the end of the month in what could prove to be a huge game in the title race.
This isn’t the first time the former Liverpool captain has complained in a post-match interview. Following Rangers’ 2-1 defeat to Kilmarnock in January, he said manager Steve Clark purposely tried to get Jermain Defoe banned for diving – according to the Star.
He can certainly handle himself in the media! One day, in the fairly distant future, we imagine he’ll be sharing such forthright opinions as Liverpool boss.
