Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard on Rangers shortlist for manager
Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard is on a shortlist to become the new manager of Rangers.
The 37-year-old, who is currently a Liverpool academy coach, has been highlighted as a possible replacement for Graeme Murty.
Murty was put in place until the end of the season after a spell as interim boss following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha in October.
But he is unlikely to be given the job on a permanent basis.
Gerrard retired as a player in 2016 and joined the youth set-up at Anfield after knocking back an offer to become manager of MK Dons.
The former midfielder witnessed at first hand the Ibrox atmosphere in March when he attended Rangers’ 3-2 defeat by champions-elect Celtic.
And Rangers chairman Dave King was at Anfield on Tuesday as Liverpool beat Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.
Former Reading and Scotland full-back Murty joined Rangers in August 2016 as head coach of their development squad.
