On the face of it, Gerrard being keen to leave his under-18s job at Liverpool to become the next Rangers manager appears a unusual one... especially as he lacks the big-game experience that fans have been calling for. The 37-year-old could yet turn Rangers down, just as he did with League One side MK Dons when thay came calling in 2016.
Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher were the ultimate professionals during their time at Anfield and a story that's recently emerged from former teammate Peter Crouch proves it. "We will support him in all directions". There is no decision.
'If I owned a club, I would think about him too.
The former Swansea boss noted Graeme Murty, who now occupies the Ibrox hot-seat but whose hopes of getting it past the end of the season probably ended with the recent 4-0 William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic at Hampden Park.
And the Newcastle manager is in no doubt Gerrard can be a big success in management.
"The club knows I want this job".
"It was quite quick learning and he did it".
Gerrard is now coaching Liverpool's youth side but is understood to be ready to take up the offer.
He said: "It depends on each one".
"I don't really want to speak on it, to be honest, and I think it's hugely disrespectful to the guy who's been put in to help manage Rangers over the last seven or eight months", Rodgers said. I'm sure he will do a bit of due diligence and he has got plenty of people he can turn to for advice.
Here, Football Insider names the possible starting line-up that Gerrard could name on the first-day of the 2018/19 season.
