Steven Gerrard confirms 'positive talks' with Rangers

Graeme Murty Leaves Rangers

Gerrard has reportedly held talks with the Scottish club about becoming their new manager, and more talks are expected this week.

The former Liverpool and England captain, now in charge of the under-18s side at Anfield, said on BT Sport on Tuesday night that he has held initial discussions with the Scottish Premiership club.

Gerrard is the preferred candidate of the Scottish Premiership club as they bid to install a permanent successor to Pedro Caixinha, who was sacked in October.

The Scottish side confirmed on Tuesday that manager Graeme Murty had been relieved of his duties and it seems Gerrard is the club's first choice to replace him at the helm.

The 43-year-old was appointed manager until the end of the 2017/18 season in December, following two spells as caretaker in 2017.

"So he will be looking for assurances if he is looking to take up the post here at Ibrox".

Rangers are locked in a tense battle with Aberdeen and Hibs to finish runners-up in the Premiership this season with both prize money differentials and the possibility of missing out on Europa League football at stake.

"So anything he can do to progress and get them closer is going to be success for him". Gerrard has been in charge of the youth team at Liverpool and recently opened up about how he views the game in a "different" way now he is a manager. It needs to be someone who knows the league and what is going on.

"Yes, Steven Gerrard might go on to be a world-class manager, as he was a player, but I don't think Rangers have the time to let someone develop".

Danny Murphy has been speaking about the speculation linking Steven Gerrard with Rangers.
