Sean Goss makes claim about Gerrard appointment at Rangers
Rangers midfielder Sean Goss has claimed that “everyone is going to be interested” in playing for the Ibrox giants once Steven Gerrard takes the reins next month – and admitted that anyone would be excited to play for the legendary former Liverpool star.
Gerrard starts his first managerial role on June 1st and has already generated a huge amount of attention for the Gers with media from Los Angeles to Tokyo – and pretty much everywhere in between – covering his appointment on Friday afternoon.
Goss thinks Gerrard’s experiences with Liverpool, England and LA Galaxy can “only help” the Light Blues when he gets started at Ibrox in a few weeks time – and admitted he will think about his future at the end of the season when his loan deal from QPR ends.
“The prospect of Steven Gerrard being here is massive. He was an amazing player and someone I looked up to. Everyone is going to be interested in playing for him and playing under him would excite anyone,” Goss said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“His experiences can only help us but I will think about that when the time comes.”

Having Gerrard take over at Ibrox has already caused a huge surge in interest in the Light Blue and it will be interesting to see just what effect it has on the type of players the Gers can recruit in the summer. While it seems fairly natural that some big names in the twilight of their career may now give consideration to an Ibrox move, it is the younger players who still have the majority of their career ahead of them that Gers fans will really want to see at Ibrox. If the prospect of playing for Gerrard appeals to players in their early-to-mid-twenties then the Ibrox giants could really see some benefits to Gerrard’s appointment sooner rather than later. The appointment of the former England skipper should also see club more open to sending promising players to Ibrox on loan to aid their development and get first-team football under their belt.
