Robinson excited about Lampard-Celtic update & 'huge' impact on Rangers

Paul Robinson claims Frank Lampard’s appointment at Celtic would have a “huge financial impact on Scottish football.”

The former Spurs and England goalkeeper, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, said reigniting the rivalry between Lampard and Rangers boss Steven Gerrard “would be incredible”.

This site revealed earlier last week that Lampard has no interest in an immediate return to management but would not rule out taking over at Celtic in the summer.

The 42-year-old is expected to reassess his options in the summer after he was sacked by Chelsea last month after 18 months in charge.

A finance expert revealed to Football Insider earlier this month that Rangers have doubled their commercial revenue since Steven Gerrard’s appointment in May 2018.

Robinson is adamant that Lampard would have the same impact at Parkhead if he replaced Neil Lennon in the summer.

“It could have a huge financial impact on Scottish football,” he told Football Insider.

“A Lampard-Gerrard twist on the Old Firm would be incredible. The Old Firm games are already very well watched and loved by millions around the world but Steven Gerrard’s move to Rangers has seen its profile rise.

“Rangers as a club have risen among English supporters, many want to watch Gerrard and see how his team is doing.

“I think Frank would have the same impact at Celtic if he went there. It would be a massive opportunity for Celtic and Frank.”
