Manager due in Glasgow today for Rangers talks 24 hours after Old Firm hammering - report

Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard is expected in Glasgow today (Monday) for further talks over replacing Graeme Murty as manager of Rangers, according to a report.

ESPN claim that the 37-year-old is due for talks with the Gers hierarchy over the role, a little over 24 hours after they were thrashed 5-0 by bitter rivals Celtic to hand the Hoops a seventh successive Scottish title.

The Liverpool Under-18s boss is said to be “ready” for his first job in management and could be announced as early as this week if talks progress well.

Current Gers boss Graeme Murty is under contract until the end of the season but is widely expected to leave in the summer.

The Light Blues are back in action on Saturday when they face Kilmarnock in their final home game of the season and Gers fans will be expecting a massive turnaround after their performance against Celtic.

The Gers are three points adrift of Aberdeen in the race for second in the Scottish Premiership although Murty’s side travel to Pittodrie following the meeting with Kilmarnock.

Football Insider verdict

If Gerrard is due in Glasgow today then it should hopefully see some sort of movement over the next day or two and an announcement shortly after. The Gers board need to get this one over the line though or they will have hammered the final nail in their own coffin. Many fans are already starting to turn against Dave King and co and a failure to land Gerrard would the final straw. Then they need to start hoping that appointing a completely unproven coach to one of the most highly-pressured jobs in Europe just now.

In other Rangers news, Dave King must improve his offer to Gerrard after an English club joined the hunt to appoint the Liverpool icon.
