Steven Gerrard is almost certainly still good enough to do a job in Rangers’ midfield.
And there’s been whispers that he should become a Player/Manager for the SPL outfit next season, having officially taken up the reigns a few days ago.
In fact, Rangers legend Andy Goram has claimed it’s a no-brainer.
“If I was Gerrard, the first thing I’d be doing would be getting my boots out because he’s 10 times better than what has been in the Rangers team over the last few years,” he told the Daily Record.
“He’s 38 but put him in. Honestly.
“After watching [Rangers] last season, no one can tell me he couldn’t do a miles better job than what there is in there.”
We’ve seen Gerrard on the pitch a few times since he officially retired. He played a friendly against Sydney FC at the end of last campaign and has featured in various testimonials and Legends matches, too.
He’s been head and shoulders above the former pros, but that’s no surprise considering how much better he was during his heyday, combined with his relentless competitive streak.
Still, we’d be massively surprised if he did decide to turn out for Rangers.
There’s a feeling that when a manager does that, it takes away from his impact on the sidelines – and we know how badly Gerrard wants to succeed.
If he does well north of the border, he’ll become the favourite to eventually replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
