Liverpool Legend Steven Gerrard 'In Talks' to Become New Rangers Manager

Liverpool Legend Steven Gerrard 'In Talks' to Become New Rangers Manager

According to The Sun, Rangers are ready to turn to Gerrard as a replacement for the sacked Pedro Caixinha - seven months after the Portuguese coach was sacked.

Dave King, Rangers chairman, was spotted at Anfield during Liverpool's win against Roma, while Steven Gerrard was at the ground working as a pundit for BT Sport.

In an interview with the club's official YouTube channel past year, Gerrard spoke about taking his young Liverpool side up to Scotland for a visit.

Since hanging up his boots in 2016, former England captain Gerrard has been coaching Liverpool's Under-18s side.




The 37-year-old former Reds' skipper is being lined up for the vacant managerial position and if an agreement is reached, it means Gerrard could face-off against former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers at Celtic.

The Sun's reports suggests a deal with Gerrard is "close" and that the 2005 Champions League victor "isn't daunted" by the challenge that would lie ahead of him - toppling Celtic and restoring Rangers to the pinnacle of Scottish football after much publicised troubles in recent years. I've got a lot of respect for this football club and it's history and tradition - and that's the reason why we took the invitation up.

"The MK Dons job, for example, which came up just after I had finished playing, was like a smack in the face".

Graeme Murty has a contract until the end of the season and it is becoming increasingly likely that Rangers won't offer him a new deal to continue beyond the summer.
