Frank Lampard thinks Steven Gerrard will 'flourish' at Rangers

Steven Gerrard

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been linked with the full-time post recently held by Mark Warburton, until February previous year, and Pedro Caixinha, until October.

The former Liverpool and England captain broke his silence on the vacancy last night, confirming that he had held positive talks with the Rangers hierarchy.

"I have held initial talks and I have plans to pick them up in a couple of days' time", he told BT Sport.

"If I was Steven Gerrard looking at that squad, and baring in mind they have got five loan players to leave as well as players out of contract and guys who are now on loan overseas to come back, I'd be thinking this is a £50million, £60million, £70million project", he said.

Rangers have sacked Graeme Murty two days after a 5-0 hammering by their bitter rivals Celtic.

Gerrard has yet to take on a head coach or managerial role, having reportedly rejected the chance to take over at MK Dons following his retirement as a player in 2016, while he has also been linked to the vacancy at Ipswich Town.

Rangers added that Murty "will take some time to consider his options, which include returning to his role at the Rangers Academy".

Frank Lampard has urged his former England team-mate Steven Gerrard to take the vacant manager's job at Rangers, with fans waiting patiently for news over a new boss.

Gerrard says talks with the Glasgow club have been "positive" and will continue later this week.

"He has cut his teeth at Liverpool with the young lads there and at some point Steven is going to step out of that and go into managing men, managing a first team".

If Gerrard fails to have the desired impact - or even just fails to progress from where Rangers now stand, then the gap will just remain the same or widen even further - which is the last thing Scottish football needs.
