Jurgen Klopp backs Steven Gerrard as Rangers rumours swirl

Share

Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Rangers chairman Dave King attended Liverpool's 5-2 humbling of Roma in their Champions League semi-final first leg clash on Tuesday. I can imagine clubs are interested.

Rodgers, whose own managerial career began in the second tier of English football at Watford, questioned whether the time is right for Gerrard to take the plunge into such a high-profile job.

Gerrard, now coach of the under-18 side at Liverpool's academy, tops a shortlist of contenders to take charge of the Ibrox club this summer, compiled by Rangers chairman Dave King, director of football Mark Allen and managing director Stewart Robertson over the past few weeks.

Crouch has spoken about his early days at Liverpool in his latest Daily Mail column, revealing what both Gerrard and Carragher did in a training session to test every player.

And while the Hoops supporters, who will be in the vast majority inside the 60,000-capacity stadium, are anticipating a day of celebration, Rodgers wants his players first and foremost to concentrate on getting over the line.

"The club knows I want this job".

However, Klopp said his work with the U18s had shown that he could do the job.

"When we first met, we had a good chat and it has developed from there".

'If he thinks he is ready, he is ready. He wanted to learn and do the job, he has done that.

However, the German joked the same courtesy would not be afforded should Everton or Manchester United ever come calling.

Gerrard is one of the best footballers of all time and is world-class, and appointing the former Liverpool star would be a blockbuster move for Rangers.

"It depends on each one".

I've got an aggressive mindset but the people who walk out onto the football pitch need to make sure they have an aggressive mindset and they don't take a backward step.

"I think he has the potential to be a great manager", said Benitez. "The kids at Liverpool have got a good leader in there".
