'Bonkers', 'Please no' – Liverpool fans react to stunning Gerrard report with huge deal close

Liverpool fans have woken up to the news that legend Steven Gerrard is closing in on  a sensational deal to be the next Rangers manager.

The Scottish Sun report that the Under-18 coach is in talks and that a deal is close for him to take on the massive job at Ibrox.

It’s a stunning development that Liverpool fans can’t quite believe, with one fan saying that he was being groomed for the Liverpool job so why would he drop down to work in Scotland?

However, Rangers chairman Dave King was spotted at Anfield for the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday night and betting was briefly suspended last night before the market was re-opened with extremely short odds.

If the report is true, then Gerrard will be taking a huge step up with the Ibrox job a minefield and full of pressure.

The expectations of Rangers fans are out of kilter with what can reasonably be achieved and the gulf between Rangers and Celtic is huge.

Gerrard will be expected to close that quickly and his inexperience will lead to even more scrutiny.
