'Wow' - Exclusive: Brown makes big Gerrard claim after Rangers reveal
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard could stay at Ibrox for another three years if he has his sights set on becoming Liverpool manager, according to Michael Brown.
The former Leeds and Tottenham midfielder, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, believes the Premier League giants will be keeping a close eye on their ex-captain’s progress in Glasgow.
Gerrard celebrated his two year anniversary of being appointed as the Gers’ boss on Monday, during which time he has taken charge of 114 games.

Brown claims that the Liverpool legend is in a great place to cut his teeth as a manager and that if he has plans of returning to Anfield in the dugout, a lengthy stay at Rangers could be on the cards.
Asked if he could see Gerrard celebrating three years with the Gers, Brown told Football Insider: “Wow, that’s flown by, two years? Jeez. Yes, I do but where is that next progression for him?
“Does he stay at Rangers, is there a Premier League side who say: ‘Do you know what, we want to give Steven Gerrard a go?’ I think he’s in a good place, he’s getting a great experience so another year will be great for him.

“What is his long game? If his long game is to be at one point Liverpool manager then at that point we might see Steven Gerrard at Rangers for five years for that progression. I just think they’ll be judging him all the time.
“He’s got some great links there, they’ll be watching his progress, I’m sure people at Liverpool will be watching all of the things he does and the progression, how he goes about it.”
The Gers have won 68 of their 114 games played under Gerrard, picking up an average of 2.04 points per game.
He had to wait three months before suffering his first defeat at Ibrox, an Olivier Ntcham goal handing Celtic a 1-0 win in his 13th game in charge.
