Alan Rough has tipped Steven Gerrard to sign a new long-term contract to extend his stay in charge of Rangers.

The Bears boss has consistently been linked with the Liverpool position since moving to Ibrox, with Jurgen Klopp struggling this season.

Rough believes that there will be no hurry in Gerrard taking charge of his former club at Anfield, and tipped him to remain in Glasgow for at-least one more year.


Speaking on PLZ Soccers’ Football Show on YouTube, Rough claimed that European success is critical for the progression of the Gers.

“Yeah, I think that everything that everything that comes with winning the league will have a big bearing on that,” he said.

“Obviously, Rangers supporters and the club itself will feel the magnitude of what they’ve just achieved from where they’ve been and that could be the reason.

“I don’t think there’s any hurry for the Liverpool one right now, Klopp has had a disappointing season, he’ll want to prove himself next season.

“I think another year or so of getting this success in Europe.”

This would be great news.

Gerrard may not need a new contract, but it would be fully justified given what he has delivered at Ibrox and the legacy he is set to create in the coming years.

After last seasons’ collapse, not many would have expected us to only lose once this season and potentially win the league as invincibles.

The majority of the praise will be given to the players by Gerrard, but he needs to celebrate his own success, by extending his stay past 2024 with improved terms.
