  • Rangers will make Steven Gerrard their new manager today

Graeme Murty was set to manage Rangers until the end of the season but was dismissed on Monday in the wake of a 5-0 loss at Celtic.

Steven Gerrard could put Rangers "back on the map" if they appoint the former Liverpool captain as their new manager, according to former Reds MD Christian Purslow.

Numerous former coaches and team-mates of Gerrard have had their say on the ex-England star taking up the role at Ibrox.

He admitted he had held talks and they were resumed on Thursday as the two parties looked to thrash out terms.

If appointed as the next Gers leader, Gerrard will be tasked to break the SPL dominance held by their Old Firm rivals Glasgow Celtic, who have now won seven consecutive league titles.




Gerrard, Liverpool's under-18 coach, was asked about the Rangers situation on BT Sport on Tuesday evening, where he said: "There is truth in the rumours".

BBC Sport claims that the 37-year-old, who now holds the position of the Champions League semi-finalists' Under 18 coach, is on the brink of accepting the role at Ibrox Stadium, which will be his first senior managerial job since announcing his intentions to get into coaching following his retirement from football in 2017.

Rangers' next game is at home to Kilmarnock and the club said assistants Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will "take charge of the team for the three remaining matches of the season".

In 2012, he told The Record: "I wanted to do well at Ibrox and did my best for Rangers".

"So I would urge Rangers fans to give him that opportunity and have faith in him knowing that it may not happen overnight".
