Steven Gerrard Frontrunner For Rangers Manager's Job

SPL bosses Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon have both expressed their shock after hearing Gerrard was in the running for the Ibrox role.

Mark Schwarzer believes managing Rangers presents an incredible opportunity for Steven Gerrard as the Liverpool icon continues to be linked with the Scottish side.

Gerrard has been working with Liverpool's youth players.

Ex-Liverpool captain Gerrard is the favourite to take over at Ibrox, and his former boss Rodgers isn't sure it would be the right move for him.

Speaking on Friday morning before Saturday's home Premier League game against Stoke City, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said of Gerrard: "I am not anxious".

"If he wants to do something different - a really big if - we would be completely happy for him and support him", he said. There is no decision. "We will support him in all directions".

It is understood any appointment is not imminent but King and his colleagues are hopeful they can persuade Gerrard to take his first step into management at Rangers.

"Steven Gerrard would have been widely regarded as an outstanding footballer".

"I think I've done a good job so far". Murty is now the interim manager of Rangers after being appointed by the club in October to see out the season, following the axing of former manager Pedro Caixinha.

"People would love this job, trust me it's a massive job, it's a stellar job and I'm desperate to hold onto it". If he thinks he is ready, he is ready. If the 37-year-old wants the job, it's his.

Talks are at an early stage but Rangers have made it clear they are interested in appointing Gerrard to what would be his first senior managerial role.

It would also pit him directly against Rodgers, his former Liverpool manager who is now in charge at Rangers' Glasgow rivals Celtic.
