EX-LIVERPOOL CAPTAIN Steven Gerrard is a surprise candidate to become the manager of Scottish Premiership club Rangers.

The 37-year-old, who retired from playing in 2016, has emerged as one of the favourites to take over at the Glasgow outfit, according to multiple sources including the BBC.

Rangers sacked manager Pedro Caixinha back in October, and Graeme Murty has in charge on an interim basis since then.

They are currently second in Scotland’s top flight but trail Old Firm rivals Celtic by 10 points. The sides meet at Parkhead on Sunday, when the Hoops can wrap up a seventh successive title by earning three points.

Rangers have Gerrard on their shortlist for the position, and handing him the role would represent his first senior managerial job. Having turned down the chance to manage MK Dons two years ago, he has been coaching with Liverpool’s underage teams.

The appointment would also pit the ex-England midfielder against his former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers, who has been hugely successful at Celtic since arriving in 2016.
