Steven Gerrard to Rangers: Liverpool coach AGREES three-year contract

Steven Gerrard to Rangers: Liverpool coach AGREES three-year contract

The Gers' devastating defeat came during more managerial uncertainty as former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard emerged last week as front runner to take over from Murty.

To Gerrard's credit, there was no b*****it in his reply, he admitted talks had taken place, adding that they had been "positive".

However, Press Association Sport understands there is no "imminent announcement" and any agreement will have to wait until Gerrard - who now is in charge of the Anfield Under-18s - returns from Rome, where he is working for BT Sport as a pundit during their coverage of Liverpool's Champions League clash with Roma.

Gerrard represents quite the risk for a Rangers side who were linked with tried-and-tested figures such as Derek McInnes and Alex McLeish after Pedro Caixinha's axing in October.

Graeme Murty has stood down as Rangers manager following Sunday's 5-0 hammering by Scottish champions Celtic.

After losing 3-2 to ten-man Celtic at Ibrox, Murty's side were hammered 4-0 in the Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden with Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace suspended by the club following an alleged dressing-room bust-up at full time.

According to the reports, in the latest developments, the Karnataka unit of BJP told Rahul Gandhi the "Bahadur Shah Zafar" of Congress.

The 37-year-old would become the long-term successor at Ibrox to Graeme Murty, who was sacked earlier on Tuesday.

Rumours on Monday suggested that the Old Firm club are closing on the appointment of the Liverpool legend as their next manager.

Rangers are third in the table, three points adrift of Aberdeen.

The Rangers caretaker boss has since parted company with the club and according to the Daily Star, Gerard will take up the managerial role on a three year deal.

Gerrard, pictured, who is now in charge of the under-18 side at Liverpool, has been urged to seize the chance to manage Rangers by his former England team-mate Frank Lampard.

"If he feels this is the right opportunity then I'm sure he'll look at it, but I haven't spoken to him on it".
