Gerrard’s First Manager Job Confirmed
Steven Gerrard’s First Manager Job Confirmed
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been named as the manager of one of the most historical clubs in Britain.
The former England midfielder has been appointed manager of Scottish Premier League club Rangers, after signing a four-year deal with the club.
“I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers. I have enormous respect for this football club, and its history and tradition," Gerrard told the club's official website.
“I can’t wait to start this new journey at Rangers as we look to build on the many successes that this Club has achieved.”
Gerrard has spent the last year coaching Liverpool’s U18 squad, and will now have the opportunity to prove himself as a senior manger in Scotland.
Rangers also stated that details of Gerrard's backroom staff will be announced in due course, but it is widely suggested that former Liverpool player and ex-Scotland international Gary McAllister will be his assistant at the club.
The 37-year-old will rival his former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers in Scotland, who has been in charge of Celtic since 2016.
