Gerrard signs three year deal to manage Rangers

Gerrard signs three year deal to manage Rangers

The former Liverpool captain is reportedly on the verge of taking charge of the Scottish giants after they dispensed with Graeme Murty's services.

'At the moment there's a lot of speculation going on around (Steven Gerrard) but I'm a wee bit reluctant to talk about it too much purely because Graeme Murty has been put in a job, ' Rodgers said.

Gerrard will be in Italy on Wednesday working as a TV pundit for Liverpool's Champions League semi-final against Roma.

Murty, the former under-20s coach, was appointed on an interim basis after the departure of Pedro Caixinha last October.

The club have failed to mount a title challenge and on Sunday were thrashed 5-0 by rivals Celtic, who sealed their seventh successive Scottish league title.

Former players Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of the team for Saturday's visit of Kilmarnock, Tuesday's trip to Aberdeen and the final day encounter against Neil Lennon's Hibs at Easter Road a week on Sunday.

John Kelly says reports he called Trump 'an idiot' are 'total BS'
The chief of staff's alleged criticisms of the president have been demoralizing to aides, the NBC sources said. General Kelly, in a statement , says he and Trump have "an incredibly candid and strong relationship".

The 43-year-old, who won 21 and lost 11 of his 35 games over two spells as interim manager, has been offered the chance to return to his previous post as the club's head development squad coach.

Murty's tenure at Rangers has been under severe scrutiny in recent weeks, with Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace having been suspended following an alleged disagreement with the manager in the aftermath of the cup defeat to Celtic.

Rangers lie third in the Scottish Premiership, three points behind Aberdeen and level on points with Hibernian, with three games remaining.

"The club hopes to be in a position to comment further on the managerial situation in the near future".

"It is going to be a big one but I think he could be the one who could hopefully change the fortunes", he told BBC Sport.
