Masterstroke, 'Absolute winner' – Rangers fans react to sensational manager report as deal close

Rangers fans have woken up to the news that their side is in talks with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard over becoming their new manager, and they’re excited.

The Scottish Sun revealed that the club, headed by recruitment expert Mark Allen, is close to a del with Gerrard and it looks like he’ll become the new manager shortly.

It’s sensational turn up that not many would have predicted and pits the young current Liverpool Under-18 coach against former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.

One concern of fans is that Gerrard has no experience at the top level – or at any level apart from the Under-18s.

However, the general consensus seems to be that he’s a huge name and that it’s hard not to be excited by him.

There are naysayers too though, with one fan saying the club had been crying out for an experienced manager for ages and that this was a huge mistake.
