Steven Gerrard 'Close' to Becoming Rangers Manager and Future Clashes With Ex-Liverpool Boss

Steven Gerrard of Liverpool is crowded out by Charlie Adam and Glenn Whelan of Stoke City during the Barclays Premier League match between Stoke City and Liverpool at Britannia

As the stand-in boss prepared for tomorrow's possible title decider against champions Celtic at Parkhead, the 43-year-old ex-Youths' coach said: "I'm in the role, I love the role, I will do everything I possibly can to keep the role".

GRAEME MURTY has admitted he is "desperate" to become Rangers manager on a permanent basis.

Graeme Souness has told Steven Gerrard that he should take the chance to manage Rangers if it presents itself.

Gerrard has spent the past 18 months as a youth development coach with boyhood club Liverpool, but multiple reports in the United Kingdom have indicated that the former Reds captain is the number one target of Scottish side Rangers.

It would also pit him directly against Rodgers, his former Liverpool manager who is now in charge at Rangers' Glasgow rivals Celtic.

"He's always wanted to be a manager".

"I felt then that I was ready to manage and it was just a case of finding the right club". When you're starting out, it's all about when you feel the time is right.

It remains to been seen whether Rangers are that club as Gerrard has already turned down an offer from League One side MK Dons since retiring as a player in order to work with young players at Liverpool. He had a massive amount of experience as a player - I think I would talk to him as well if I owned a club.

Gerrard is now Under-18 manager at Liverpool and brought his side up to Ibrox earlier this season to take on Graeme Murty's Under-20s.

Hibernian and former Celtic manager Neil Lennon said to appoint the untried Gerrard to such a high-profile role would be "a risk on both parties".

"I am not being disrespectful to Rafa, as without him I wouldn't have moved to Anfield, but that first session it was all about winning over Steven Gerrard".

"I'm sure it will be positive for him".
