Jamie Carragher believes Steven Gerrard wants to stay at Rangers for at least two more years
Jamie Carragher has revealed that he thinks his former teammate Steven Gerrard will want to stay at Rangers for at least two more years.
Speaking to BBC Scotland about Gerrard, the Sky Sports pundit revealed his thoughts on the 41-year-old’s future at Ibrox, and it is good news for Gers fans.
Carragher believes that Gerrard wants to “dominate” Scottish football with the Gers because he’s a “winner.”
He said: “Stevie has got the taste for Rangers now and Glasgow.
“I’m not putting words in his mouth; I’d imagine he’d be looking at maybe another two or three years where he wants to really dominate Scotland and put Rangers back up there.
“Rather than stopping the 10 in a row, actually put Rangers on a run of winning cups and trophies – and hopefully get them into the Champions League next year.
“If you’re a Rangers manager and you come in when Celtic are winning things, you can’t expect other teams in the division to beat them [Celtic]; you’ve to do your job.”
Carragher hints at a successful future.
Gerrard has three years remaining on his contract, but unfortunately, contracts can mean very little these days in football, and if the 41-year-old sees a better opportunity, he could leave.
However, judging from what Carragher said, Gerrard won’t even entertain other job offers for at least another two seasons, possibly three.
If he stays and the Gers dominate Scottish football again, he would have probably built an incredible legacy that would never be forgotten.
So the future looks exciting for Rangers if Carragher is proved right.
However, the former Liverpool midfielder must now find a way to get the Gers back up to their 2020/21 levels as they have started the season inconsistently.
To do this, we can think of no better way than beating Celtic in the Old Firm tomorrow and taking a giant leap forward in the title race.
