Michael Brown has suggested that Rangers manager Steven Gerrard could stay at Ibrox for another two years before looking to change jobs.
The former Sheffield United and Tottenham midfielder, speaking to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, believes the Liverpool legend will be willing to bide his time and wait to get the job at Anfield.
As revealed by Football Insider last week, Gerrard turned down an approach from Championship big guns Birmingham City as they seek out a replacement for the departing Pep Clotet.
Brown admits he has been thinking about where the Rangers boss might go next and suggests that he could stay at Ibrox until Jurgen Klopp leaves Merseyside.
Brown told Football Insider: “I’ve thought about this a few times and you say where is your next club?
“Does he think he’ll do another two years at Rangers, really, really learn his trade and then he’ll be ready to go to you know where?
“There’s going to be interest in him, that’s a given, you’d expect that with Steven Gerard so I don’t think this is anything new for Rangers, this is normal.”
Gerrard has helped Rangers finish second in the Premiership in both of his seasons in charge in Glasgow, while he reached his first final in the Scottish League Cup.
He has also taken the Light Blues to the round of 16 in the Europa League, with the Gers 3-1 down to Bayer Leverkusen after the first leg.
