Jamie O'Hara shoots down Steven Gerrard-Rangers exit talk amid Everton links

Jamie O’Hara has shot down talk of Rangers manager Steven Gerrard moving to Everton after Carlo Ancelotti’s exit earlier this week.

The Premier League side are on the hunt for a new manager after Ancelotti left Merseyside after 18 months to return to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

According to The Athletic Gerrard is among the contenders to replace the Italian tactician, despite his intense relationship with them over the last few decades as a boyhood Liverpool fan who captained the club to glory.

Former England international Danny Mills backed the move, telling talkSPORT [03/06/21] that it would be a “fantastic opportunity” and that “stranger things have happened”.

However ex-Tottenham Hotspur midfielder O’Hara, who has had his share of run-ins with Rangers supporters, is adamant that there is no chance of Gerrard leaving the Light Blues for the Toffees.

He wrote on his personal Twitter profile: “I can guarantee you now Steven Gerrard will never be the Everton manager…”

No sweat on Stevie

There’s more chance of O’Hara becoming Rangers manager than there is of Gerrard moving to Everton – that’s how confident we are on this one.

Gerrard wouldn’t just be letting us down if he made the move to the blue half of Merseyside, but he’d be risking his Liverpool legacy and relationship with millions of their supporters.

It’s not as if he is a struggling manager desperate for the next move. His stock is extremely high after guiding Rangers to an invincible Scottish Premiership campaign that saw us dash Celtic hopes of 10 titles in a row.

He probably has the pick of the clubs for his next move, and it has long been suggested that it would be to Liverpool.

There’s just no logic to claims that he would be interested in going to Everton.

We think he’s going to be sticking around in Glasgow for some time to come, and this link doesn’t trouble us a jot.
