Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has recently become the unexpected favourite to be in charge of Rangers when the 2018/19 season kicks-off.

Graeme Murty is widely expected to leave his post as first-team manager at the end of the campaign after recent comments made by chairman Dave King failed to back the former Under-20s boss who was handed the job in the wake of Pedro Caixinha’s sacking.

Frank de Boer, Steve Clarke and Graham Potter have been some of the frontrunners since bookmakers opened the market on who would replace Murty in the Ibrox hotseat, however fans were taken aback when SkyBet suddenly installed Gerrard as the clear odds-on favourite this week.

As it stands, Gerrard is currently priced at 8/11 to be in charge of the Light Blues for the first game of next term.

If Rangers manage to hire the Champions League-winning Liverpool icon, then they would surely change the way that Mark Allen goes about his transfer business as it would unlock a host of potential signings that he could make from Anfield.

Gerrard has had a major impact on some of the players at Liverpool and if he was Gers manager, he would definitely be able to use his contacts to broker some loan deals.

Here, Football Insider looks at three Liverpool players that Gerrard could sign for Rangers if he is hired.
