Rangers have confirmed that Steven Gerrard will be the club’s next manager and there’s no illusion as to how big of a task it will be for him at Ibrox.

Gerrard, 37, has no managerial experience at senior level, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be a bad appointment by the Gers as the Liverpool legend will surely be able to attract some big names to Govan as well as maybe strengthen the financial interest in Scottish football.

One player that Gerrard must get on to the phone with straight away is Leicester defender Robert Huth, who will be out of contract and available for free in the coming weeks.

Huth, 33, could be the new Clint Hill at Rangers and if anything, the German powerhouse would be a much better addition that the former Ibrox fan favourite was.

The ex-Chelsea and Stoke centre-back was key in helping Leicester win the 2015/16 Premier League title and could play a similar role in helping Rangers produce the goods next season with Gerrard at the helm.

Standing at 6ft 3in, the defensive tank would be a stunning addition at Ibrox and he may be within range of the club’s wage budget as according to the Daily Star, he is earning £37,500-a-week and he would surely be willing to take a paycut if it means he gets regular first team football with the Light Blues.

Although Huth is not that mobile, his experience speaks for itself and alongside someone like Ross McCrorie with an athletic defensive midfielder in front of him, the Scottish Premiership should be a breeze for the 19-times German international.

Gerrard must snap up Huth as soon as possible as there will be an inevitable swarm of clubs looking to sign him up once Leicester let him go.
