Times detail Liverpool compensation stance as Rangers close in on Gerrard

By Richard Parks

Liverpool would not stand in the way of Steven Gerrard taking over as Rangers manager, according to a report.

The Times claim the Merseyside giants are keen to appoint the Anfield icon, 37, and have tabled an offer to him as they step up their search for yet another new boss.

It is said that Liverpool will not block their Under-18s coach from moving to Ibrox and will not seek compensation either.

The Times report that Gerrard is weighing up the offer from Rangers after holding recent talks and the job is his if he wants it.

The Premier League all-time great previously rejected the opportunity to take over at MK Dons soon after calling time on his playing career at the end of 2016.

Football Insider verdict:

There is much food for thought for Gerrard over the coming days. Taking over as Rangers boss is a huge gamble for him, and a shot in the dark for the club, too. It would amount to replacing one youth coach with no first-team experience in Graeme Murty with another. However, one thing the Anfield icon has in his favour over Murty is that he will have enormous respect from the dressing room. It is hard to imagine Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace shredding his tactics and game plan in front of the rest of the players. Pointing at his trophy cabinet during his own glittering playing career will only take Gerrard so far. He needs to be able to galvanise the players under his command and come up with a playing style that can win tight matches. It is a huge challenge.
