Rangers manager Steven Gerrard warned by Ray Parlour to stay in Scotland
Ray Parlour believes that Steven Gerrard has more to prove at Rangers before moving to the Premier League.
Speaking on talkSPORT, the former Arsenal man insisted that the 41-year-old must do more in Scotland before he can think about moving back to England.
Gerrard has been linked with the Newcastle United job after their takeover was completed, but Parlour has warned him against taking the job.
He said: “Look, he’s going to be Liverpool manager one day, but whether it is a stepping stone to (become) Liverpool manager, I don’t know.
“I still think he has a lot to prove up in Scotland, saying can we win it again?”
Good message from Parlour.
In his time with the Gers, Gerrard has won just one trophy, despite transforming the club.
So you can see why the pundit has warned Gerrard against making the move to England too early. He has until 2024 on his current deal, and Jurgen Klopp has the same amount of time left on his contract.
It seems set up for the 41-year-old to manage the Gers until Klopp leaves and then return to Anfield, having built a legacy at Ibrox.
However, there has been a claim that this could be Gerrard’s last season at Ibrox, which would be a huge shame [Daily Mail].
Hopefully, he stays and continues to build on what he has started in Glasgow.
The club is much better off with him than without him, and in fairness, you could say that he does still have a lot more to prove before he can make a move to England and the Premier League.
