Danny Mills claimed, “there is going to be a point” where Steven Gerrard will look to quit Rangers after conceding the club cannot compete with the “financial power” of Celtic.
The former England full-back, speaking exclusively Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, suggested a host of clubs would be “prepared to take a gamble” on the Gers manager.
A 2-2 draw away at St. Johnstone this weekend saw Gerrard’s side slip further behind league leaders Celtic in the race for the Scottish Premiership title.
Since the winter break Rangers have dropped 10 points from a possible 24 to leave the title-race all but dead in the water.
Mills admitted Gerrard may look for a new project if the former Liverpool captain concedes that he has taken the Light Blues as far as he can.
“Rangers have not got the financial power to catch them,” the former England international told Football Insider.
“Maybe in time they will but how long will that take and how long will Gerrard be there?
“He is doing a very good with the experience of Gary McAllister and Michael Beale alongside him. However, there is going to be a point if they are not getting any closer, where he concedes, that without the financial power to challenge Celtic he will feel he has done everything he possibly can and that it is time to move on.
“No doubt there will be several clubs prepared to take a gamble on him.”
The Hoops now have a 12 point advantage over their Old Firm rivals as they go for their ninth consecutive league title.
Attention will now be turned to the Europa League as the Gers travel to Braga to defend a slender 3-2 advantage in the second leg of their Round of 32 tie.
