Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has say on two-week Covid-19 break
Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has played down the idea of a two-week break in football.
There have been headlines in England about a possible circuit breaker within football due to the rising number of positive coronavirus cases.
New West Brom manager Sam Allardyce backed a two-week break.
Recent Premier League games – Manchester City v Everton and Fulham v Spurs – have been postponed due to players and staff members testing positive for Covid-19.
However, Gerrard has questioned just how much of an impact that would have, noting the need for football as an escape for supporters.
Scottish football is in the middle of a busy period of fixtures and there is no winter break scheduled.
“Football gives people a release and something to watch,” Gerrard said ahead of Saturday's Old Firm clash.
"It really helps people in their daily routines during Covid.
“For me, there is also no data to guarantee a two-week break improves the situation.”
