We’re delighted to welcome former Rangers manager Alex McLeish as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Ibrox…
Alex McLeish has dismissed reports that Steven Gerrard could be wanted by Tottenham to replace Jose Mourinho after his success at Rangers.
It has been reported recently by 90min that the Bears boss could be on a shortlist of managers to replace the so-called Special One should he be sacked.
McLeish believes that Gerrard is looking to create a legacy, and can only imagine that happening at Ibrox and Liverpool further down the line.
Speaking exclusively to Ibrox News, McLeish said, “Steven Gerrard has got all of the money he needs in the world.
“It’s not a case of doing this for the money. He’ll be doing this career for his own prestige, for trying to be a winner; I don’t think that he would go to Spurs.
“Even though it’s big money, I still think that Rangers and probably Liverpool would be his two choices. He’ll still be a Rangers man.”
McLeish is spot on, why would Gerrard want to leave Ibrox?
The Bears got to the exact same stage as Spurs in the Europa League this season and will be in the running for Champions League football.
There is a strong possibility that the London-based side won’t be involved in the Champions League at all, and will be failing to reach the top-four.
Gerrard is well on his way to legendary status in Glasgow, if not already having it; he is going to push forward and become one of the best we have ever seen it.
