Steve Mcmanaman can see Steven Gerrard leaving Rangers to manage Manchester City or Tottenham before he goes to Liverpool.
Following the Gers’ capture of title 55, Gerrard’s name has been mentioned as a potential successor to Jurgen Klopp who is struggling at Liverpool.
Anfield icon Mcmanaman claims other top clubs in the Premier League will want to speak to Gerrard in the next few years after his recent achievements.
“In terms of what he does next in management, it depends on what Steven wants,” Mcmanaman told Horseracing.net.
“But if Jurgen [Klopp] wants to manage Liverpool for the next ten years and Steven gets an offer to manage, I don’t know, a Tottenham or a Man City, he might feel that’s more palatable than waiting for Liverpool.
“It’s entirely up to him. I think his dream job would be to manage Liverpool and he wouldn’t want to spoil that.”
On one hand, it is brilliant that our manager has earned the credibility to be linked with potentially replacing Pep Guardiola but it does suggest he won’t be Ibrox boss much longer.
Rangers fans and the majority of the football world accept that Gerrard will end up in the dugout at Anfield at some point in his career.
So much so that we hadn’t really considered other Premier League clubs throwing their hat in the ring.
There are growing concerns that if a top side from England wants Gerrard as their next manager then he could leave us to return to his home country.
Mcmanaman clearly thinks Liverpool won’t be the only club interested in Gerrard and that can only be bad news for us if his assessment is correct.
None of us are ready to lose Stevie G but he may find it hard to turn down a top Premier League job, even if it isn’t Liverpool.
In other Rangers news, the club must see through BBC Scotland’s latest statement.
