Jamie Carragher claims Steven Gerrard will stay at Rangers for the next few years but backed his former teammate to take the Liverpool job at some point.
Rangers secured their first title for 10 years on Sunday as Celtic dropped points at Tannadice and naturally talk turned to Gerrard’s influence over the historic moment.
Carragher was asked for his thoughts on Gerrard’s job at Ibrox and insisted his former teammate will remain at Rangers in the short-term.
“I’m really pleased for him,” Carragher said while commentating on Liverpool v Fulham for Sky Sports.
“It’s not an easy job for anyone going to Rangers on the back of what Celtic had done but for a first job in management, what a start he’s made.
“I’m sure he’ll have a long and successful career in management and I’m sure for the next few years at Rangers.
“I’m sure, one day he may be in the dugout here [Anfield] also.”
As a Liverpool legend who is succeeding as a manager it is only natural there are links between our boss and a return to Anfield.
Plenty of football fans expect this to happen in the future, it is just a matter of when.
Of course, we hope Gerrard has a fair few years left in him at Ibrox and after today’s success, why would he want to leave?
He can lead us into the Champions League next season and we’re sure he won’t want to miss out on a well-earned campaign in Europe’s premier competition after working so hard for it.
Whatever happens, Gerrard is a Rangers legend and he can only enhance his reputation here.
We just hope he has the chance to back this season’s success up with a few more trophies.
