Pundit can't believe Lampard could be named Rangers manager after Redknapp reveal

Frank McAvennie insists Frank Lampard isn’t experienced enough to replace Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

The former Celtic hitman, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claims Lampard isn’t a good fit for the Ibrox club despite him being touted for the job by his uncle Harry Redknapp in the Scottish Sun.

On Friday (12 November) Sky Sports reported Lampard, 43, has rejected the chance to become Norwich’s new manager.

This came after Gerrard quit Ibrox to take over as Aston Villa manager on Thursday morning.

This site was told by a Rangers source on Thursday (11 November) that John Terry and Ronald Koeman are on the wishlist of director of football Ross Wilson to take over as manager.

McAvennie insists Rangers should target a more experienced manager than Lampard.

“I can see why Lampard has been mentioned by some people, I heard his name mentioned on the radio before,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He’s almost like-for-like with Gerrard. He’s a very successful English player who wants to go into management.

“He’s had more experience than Gerrard had when he arrived at Ibrox. I’m not sure that’s the point though.

“I can’t see that one personally. Let me tell you, I don’t think it would be a good fit.

“Lampard going to Rangers, is that real? I really don’t think so.

“If he came in, would you guarantee that Rangers would win the title? I don’t think so.

“They need someone more proven at this stage. Gerrard has elevated them to that level.”

Rangers sit top of the Scottish Premiership.

They are ahead of rivals Celtic by four points ahead of the domestic season resuming after the international break.
