Joleon Lescott has claimed it would be no surprise if Steven Gerrard left Rangers to take charge of Liverpool next season.
The Reds have been struggling under Jurgen Klopp and have lost six consecutive games at Anfield, and Gerrard has been tipped to replace him further down the line.
BBC pundit, Lescott believes that switch to Merseyside could happen much sooner and even in the next six months.
Speaking on BBC 5 Live Sport, Lescott believes that Gerrard would be able to get more out of the Liverpool squad than many others could.
“If Steven Gerrard was manager of Liverpool next season, that wouldn’t surprise me,” he said.
“Because he has just got that about him, when you’ve had the career he’s had as well, there’s an aura about him, and there’s a level of player he can attract.
“The players there, no matter what they’ve achieved, no one is going to mean more to the Liverpool faithful than Steven Gerrard, so he can demand a level of professionalism that many can’t.”
Why would Gerrard want to leave at this moment in time? His legacy has only just started at Ibrox, and he will want to start a series of dominance in Glasgow before going anywhere.
Everyone knows that Liverpool is close to his heart, but with three more years on his contract and Klopp still in charge at Anfield, things are set in place.
As soon as the Premier League side hits one bad patch of form, Gerrard’s name is always mentioned by everyone in football, and that needs to stop.
The Bears still have the Europa League and Scottish Cup to play for this season too, his stock is only going to rise should he bring home a domestic double and a charge to the final eight in Europe.
Even more good times are coming, and Gerrard will be at the helm for them.
