Rangers boss Steven Gerrard addresses talk he could replace Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

Steven Gerrard has spoken out on speculation that he could one day succeed Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager. Gerrard has led Rangers to a commanding position at the top of the Scottish Premiership, fuelling calls for him to one day manage the club he represented as a player for 17 years.

Klopp last year signed a new deal committing him to Liverpool until 2024.

The 53-year-old has already ensured his place in Anfield folklore, having ended the Reds’ Premier League title drought a year after leading the club to Champions league glory.

But the day must come when Klopp vacates the Liverpool hotseat, and the German has been touted as a future manager of his home country’s national team.

Reds legend Gerrard looks set to be one of the names linked with the job when it eventually becomes available, having so far thrived in his first managerial role.

And he said the club is still a big part of his life.

“The club have been absolutely amazing with me throughout my playing career, I still watch all of the games, my relationships are still very strong, I’ve still got ex-team-mates playing in the team and that’s where it is,” said Gerrard.

“There’s nothing else to really discuss on it.”

Gerrard led Rangers to a 1-0 win over Hibernian on Boxing Day, extending their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership to 19 points ahead of Celtic’s trip to face Hamilton Academical later in the day.
