Rangers link to 37-year-old boss is garbage, he should be nowhere near Ibrox hotseat


Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard has become a much talked about option to take the reins at Ibrox this summer – and it shows how little idea anybody has of what is going on in the Gers’ manager search.

Gerrard’s odds became odds-on favourite for the job with bookmakers SkyBet after Liverpool fan and Rangers chairman Dave King was spotted at Anfield watching the Reds play Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night, which gives you an idea just how garbage the link is to start with.

The Ibrox chairman has long been known to lean towards the Reds and King being at Anfield for a Champions League semi-final is as likely as any other rich Liverpool fan being there.

Further ‘fuel’ was added to the fire after Gerrard attended last month’s Old Firm clash at Ibrox after being invited up by the Gers following his Liverpool youth side coming up to face the Gers Under-20s earlier in the season.

The fact that the 37-year-old’s time coaching extends all the way back to the start of the season should rule him out of taking the reins but it seems, in some corners at least, that having a fantastic playing career is a good substitute to be Rangers manager.

Gerrard – like any other rookie boss – should be nowhere near the Ibrox hotseat next season and that some fans are actually buying that the former midfielder could potentially take over in the summer is terrifying.

The last thing Rangers need right now is a manager who has yet to manage a single senior game – regardless of how many league titles he challenged for as a player.
