Michael Beale has opened up on the possibility of Steven Gerrard leaving Rangers for the Liverpool job in the future.
The Bears boss has been linked with the post at Anfield ever since jumping into management, and those reports have increased during the Reds’ recent struggles.
Beale labelled Gerrard as “incredible” and believes that he must first continue this success and bring more trophies to Rangers before jumping ship.
Speaking to ESPN Brazil, Beale claimed that Jurgen Klopp is currently the best person for the job at Anfield, and that shouldn’t change immediately.
“I find it difficult to predict the future, you must live today and try to be the best coach possible,” he said.
“At the moment, Klopp is one of the five best coaches in the world, and the best coach for Liverpool is Jurgen Klopp. I worked closely with him as an under-23 coach, and he is fantastic for the players and his coaching staff. He has done an incredible job so far.
“In the future, if Steven Gerrard can continue to be a success, win trophies and gain experience, then it is possible that Liverpool will be his future.”
We are all prepared for this eventuality, whenever it may come.
Beale is spot on for now, though, with Gerrard surely wanting to build a legacy at Ibrox before packing his bags and moving back down south.
Title number 55 will only get the gaffer wanting more, with the Scottish Cup and Europa League also added on to that this season, imagine a treble.
On top of this, the Bears will get the chance of Champions League for the first time since the 2011/12 season where they failed to make the group stage.
There is still plenty to play for at Ibrox, and we expect Gerrard and Beale to be at the heart of that beyond this season.
