The whisper on the wind this morning is that Steven Gerrard is in talks to make his first foray into senior management.
Gerrard has been entrusted with manning the Liverpool Under-18 side since December but is now said to be edging towards Glasgow Rangers, with the Scottish Sun reporting that talks have been held between the two parties.
Rangers chairman Dave King was at Anfield on Tuesday as Liverpool beat Roma in the Champions League, while Gerrard was spotted at an Old Firm match earlier this season.
Say. No. More.
Should it all come to pass, the 37-year-old will become Rangers first permanent head coach since Pedro Caixinha was fired off into oblivion last October. Graeme Murty has been in interim charge since then, with Gers second in the Scottish Premiership but 10 points off champions-elect Celtic.
Assuming Gerrard does end up taking the role, he’ll find his squad bolstered by two players with (some) Premier League experience, with Rangers closing in on deals to sign Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor and Scott Arfield of Burnley.
