Gerrard reveals talks with Rangers have been "positive"

They say sources close to Gerrard have told them that he is viewing a potential stint at Rangers as the ideal stepping stone to one day succeeding Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

Gerrard began working as Liverpool's youth coach at Anfield in February previous year before going on to manage the u19 and u18 sides after impressing senior boss Jurgen Klopp.

Asked about reports linking him with the post, Gerrard told BT Sport: "Yes, there is truth in the rumours".

Assistant coaches Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of the club's three remaining league fixtures, starting with fifth-placed Kilmarnock's visit to Ibrox on Saturday.

"I'm busy for a couple of days now and I'll pick it up on Thursday and we'll see if we can progress it".

The job would represent a huge task for the inexperienced 37-year-old considering that he has never managed at senior level.


Rangers (65 points) are third in the Premiership table three points behind Aberdeen, with only goal difference separating them from fourth-placed Hibernian.

Rangers added that Murty "will take some time to consider his options, which include returning to his role at the Rangers Academy".

Gerrard and Rangers chairman Dave King attended Liverpool's Champions League semi-final, first leg against AS Roma at Anfield last Tuesday and the former national team captain has confirmed initial talks took place.

"If it feels right, I think he can handle that pressure from his playing days, he's no stranger to that with the career he had in the game".

The Ibrox is seen by Gerrard as the "perfect environment" to prepare him for the Liverpool hot seat.
