Rangers are looking for a new manager, and the person that is most likely to take this position is Steven Gerrard. The club recently made the headlines when Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace got into conflict with the Rangers’ current manager, Graeme Murty. While this might not be the main reason for possible Murty’s replacement, internal conflicts are never a good sign. On the other hand, Murty’s contract expires this summer, so appointing new club manager is the most logical step for Rangers.
Best UK betting sites have already picked their favourites to take on Murty’s place. Steven Gerrard is currently the top contender for the Rangers job. The 37-year-old started coaching Liverpool U18s last year. The coaching role is still relatively new to Gerrard, but he has more than enough experience on the field.
Gerrard spent almost his entire career playing for Liverpool. He played 17 years for the club, only to spend his last season as a player at LA Galaxy. Whiston born football player can bring even more experience to Rangers, as he played for England’s national team from 2000 to 2014.
Almost immediately after retiring from football, Gerrard got an opportunity to coach Milton Keynes Dons. He turned the offer down, but for a good reason. As the former England and Liverpool captain explained, that opportunity might have been the right one, but it came at the wrong time. Gerrard knew he didn’t have enough coaching experience to take on that position.
In December last year, Steven said that he would leave Liverpool if the right opportunity presents itself. We cannot know how much coaching experience Gerrard gained so far, but we know that Rangers need a new manager.
The club is still looking for the right candidate for the coaching position. However, they may decide to extend Murty’s contract, and not bring anyone new on the team. Well, we won’t know for sure until the situation develops further.
