Rangers will sell their best performers like Glenn Kamara and Alfredo Morelos.
That is the view of former England and Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after it was revealed Ibrox chiefs are worried about whispers coming out of Liverpool.
It comes as Gerrard’s reputation as a manager continues to grow as he looks set to bring the Scottish Premiership to Ibrox for the first time in a decade.
He has also led Rangers to the Europa League Round of 16 for the second consecutive season after their 9-5 aggregate win over Royal Antwerp last week.
The club’s performances in Europe now mean they value Glen Kamara at over £10million – just over two years after they signed him for £50,000.
His teammate Alfredo Morelos has also caught the eye in Europe and was directly involved in seven of the nine goals in the Round of 32 tie.
Asked whether the pair’s value will only increase the further Rangers progress in the Europa League, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “100 per cent.
“I’m sure the board at Rangers will say to Steven Gerrard ‘These players, it’s up to you if you want them to go.’
“Steven Gerrard will have a big say on whether they sell them because Rangers will want to keep him there for years to come because of the job he’s done.
“It will be a tough one but I’m sure they’ll be able to hold onto them.”
Rangers travel to the Czech Republic to face Slavia Prague in the Round of 16 next Thursday before the second leg at Ibrox the following week.
Last season they were knocked out by Bayer Leverkusen 4-1 at this stage albeit with five months between the two legs due to the coronavirus pandemic.
