Alan Stubbs has warned Steven Gerrard to "take care of who he listens to" while settling into life as the Rangers' boss.

Gerrard kicked the Premier League campaign controversially last weekend, after the 1-1 draw of his team in Aberdeen that "the world is against us" and claiming that arbitration decisions have been going against of the Rangers seasonally.

The quick expulsion of Alfredo Morelos was the spark of Gerrard's complaint, but since then the red card has degraded to yellow, leaving the striker free to play against Stubbs & St Mirren on Sunday.

Formerly an Everton midfielder, Stubbs frequently rubbed shoulders with Gerrard during the Merseyside derbies and believes that the former Liverpool captain will learn quickly during his first job in administration, and no less important in judging how he frames his public comments.

"Steven was the best midfielder I ever faced," said Stubbs. I'm trying to think of another but I can not. He was brilliant.

"I think he's dealing well with the administration, he just needs to be careful who he listens to, he's definitely a strong enough character to make his own opinion, even when I've spoken to him away from football, he's always known what I wanted to do

& # 39; Will make his own opinion about things. Steven will quickly understand how people will jump to things here in Scotland. Stubbs proceeded to question the appeal process of the SFA, alleging that the officials had been abandoned by the verdict.

It was assistant David McGeachie who alerted referee Kevin Clancy about Morelos' kick against Scott McKenna of Aberdeen and Stubbs believes he was right in making the call.

"I can see why he was expelled," Stubbs said. "Maybe it was hard, but the lineman was doing his job, I think they have undermined the referee, I was surprised at the result.

When you deliver your case to a disciplinary committee, when something like this happened, I would show you that footage. There is your precedent. They have created a problem for them. Again.

"Now we'll have to wait and see how it goes throughout the season and how the authorities deal with other similar instances."

After accumulating three points on the first day of the season thanks to a local victory over Dundee, Sunday marks the first of two demanding trips for the new Stubbs team.

After facing the Rangers, St Mirren must go to Aberdeen next weekend, but Stubbs insists he is thriving in the challenge.

He continued: "We knew we would find ourselves with some difficult weeks, but that is the reason why the players worked so much last season." Ibrox can be very intimidating, but I was never afraid of that, it is not discouraging unless the 50,000 are singing a song about me, and even then I think that's respect. "
