Steven Gerrard is Rangers new manager – and our former captain will take the dugout for the first time next season.
The Ibrox club finished 12 points behind Celtic and that gap will be the one Gerrard, who was in charge of our U18s this term, will be charged with reducing.
Ideally, he’ll secure Rangers their first title since 2011, but it’ll be a mighty tough ask considering the players at his disposal and his managerial experience.
According to Stevie, he’ll be looking to replicate Jurgen Klopp’s extremely exciting, pressing style of football north of the border.
“When you look at the style of football that Jurgen Klopp plays, I think every fan in the world loves watching that,” Gerrard told a Q&A in Dubai, cited by RTE.
“He’s been absolutely massive for the club.”
“Celtic have had it their own way for far too long.
“This is a massive opportunity for myself and Gary McAllister [his chosen Assistant] to go to a huge football club and try to improve things in Glasgow.
“We go up to Glasgow and we will give it our best.”
The first Old Firm Derby will be mighty interesting, as Gerrard’s former boss Brendan Rodgers manages Celtic – and has just racked up his second consecutive title with The Bhoys.
We’re supporting Stevie, but as a club, Liverpool have tighter connections with Celtic, so it’s an interesting dynamic, certainly.
Really though, we hope Gerrard proves himself a success before potentially taking the Anfield reigns one day.
Not for some time, of course, with Klopp set to see out the six year contract he signed in 2016 – but after our German’s achieved everything he can – Gerrard could be the perfect replacement.
