Steven Gerrard has reportedly agreed to join Rangers

Steven Gerrard wants to make Liverpool cult hero his first signing as Rangers boss

The 37-year-old was appointed Rangers boss on Friday and will attempt to close the gap in Glasgow after signing a four-year-deal at Ibrox. "I believe I can come in and make these fans happy". From that first phone call I had a special feeling, I knew Rangers was for me. I've seen it, I've been in and around it.

"As soon as I asked him, he said yes".

"It was a no-brainer for me". But the key was the opportunity.

"So it's not because Steven is inexperienced, it's not because he's not managed anyone". I think it's a gamble. I send them to the club where I think they can develop and improve. In terms of targets I just want to win.

Do you think he will be a success at Rangers in the coming months? They made me aware Rangers had been in touch and wanted permission to speak to me. I loved that about my life when I was a player.

"I love a challenge. That's what I'm about".

Gerrard will be desperate to bring Celtic's dominance to an end next season.

"The supporters are the main thing here, not just one of the main things".

Although Gerrard possesses limited knowledge of Scottish football, the suggestion is that he will hire former Scotland captain Gary McAllister, one of his old central-midfield partners and an ex-Liverpool coach with Rodgers, as his number two. "I'm a lucky man". I've been around a big football club for a long time.

Following the announcement, Gerrard was unveiled as new Gers boss at Ibrox yesterday.

The Atletico Madrid forward is preparing to leave the Spanish outfit for the second time this summer.

The transfer market is a real test of a manager's ability, and in that regard, Gerrard has no experience.

"I really like it from both sides".

After returning to Liverpool in a floating coaching role at the academy in February 2017, before taking the U18 job at the start of the season, Gerrard had been the most high-profile youth coach in football.

"I am not getting carried away with this wave of euphoria".

Then there is the ongoing saga with King and the Takeover Panel.

Rangers fans excited by the prospect of Gerrard's arrival said he could help the club recruit better-quality players in what is expected to be a busy transfer window. "It's down to me to create a team that's capable of winning". "Me and Brendan are fine", Gerrard said. What a time to risk your managerial future on the roll of a dice. "I always say when I welcome new managers into the job is, 'welcome to the land of no sleep.' It is a totally different experience".
