Steven Gerrard to resume Rangers manager talks this week

Steven Gerrard has broken his silence on rumours linking him to the Rangers manger's job, confirming he's already held "positive" talks with the club's hierarchy.

The Liverpool icon explained to Lineker on Tuesday night at the start of BT Sport's Champions League coverage that further negotiations with Rangers will take place on Thursday.

"There's truth in the rumours", said Gerrard.

"But when you've got a chairman in Dave King asking for a rapid response and that he is going to provide all the funds needed to sustain and make possible that immediate success, it heaps a massive amount of pressure on Steven Gerrard".

"We'll see. I've held positive talks with them".

It is also thought Gerrard wants assurances that he will have the final say on which players come in as he will have to work under director of football Mark Allen, the former Manchester City academy head.

The 43-year-old Murty, who had been coach of the club's development squad, was appointed in December until the end of the campaign following the dismissal of Pedro Caixinha.

Should Gerrard take on the position these issues will be hard to resolve. Despite investing heavily in the summer, Rangers were knocked out of UEFA Europa League qualifying by Luxembourg's Progres Niederkorn. While Rangers are third in the Scottish Premier League, the chasm between them and their bitter Glasgow rivals is enormous at this point.

Only hours after Rangers sacked caretaker manager Graeme Murty, Gerrard spoke publicly about the Ibrox club for the first time since being linked with the vacancy last week.
