- The legendary Liverpool captain is now in the first major job of his managerial career.
- He's already achieved massive success, ending Celtic's 9-year dominance in the Scottish Premiership.
- In the future, Gerrard is likely to return to Liverpool in a new capacity, but he still has a lot to go for at Rangers.
“That’s probably the main goal. That’s probably what he’s striving for,” Rangers striker Jermaine Defoe told talkSPORT about his manager Steven Gerrard.
“Because he’s done so well and that’s what he’s striving for and it’s his first main job really. He went from Liverpool Under-18s straight to Rangers, even then people probably thought that was a big job for your first job.
“To dominate domestically was special, but people might look at it and think it’s either going to be Celtic or Rangers, but to compete in Europe as well. At some point, I think he will go on to manage Liverpool.”
Steven Gerrard has just won his first major trophy as a manager - and Rangers' first league trophy in a decade - with seven games to go in the Scottish Premiership.
His contract with Rangers expires only in 2024, the same year as Jurgen Klopp's contract with Liverpool runs out - all of which naturally keeps the speculations alive that Gerrard will be back at Anfield in three years' time.
