Watch Steven Gerrard react to questions on future and links to Rangers job

Liverpool U18 boss Steven Gerrard has been linked with the managerial position at Rangers—and he confirmed he’s held initial talks with the Scottish side.

Gerrard, a Champions League-winning captain with the Reds, has spent this term learning his trade as a coach.

As well as leading the U18s, Gerrard has taken charge of the U19s in the UEFA Youth League, where they reached the quarter-final stage.

The former midfielder has never held back on his ambitions to become a manager at senior level, and it appears his first job could be north of the border with Rangers.

Speaking on BT Sport, Gerrard admitted he had held “positive” talks with the club, with more due from Thursday onward over the possibility of taking over in the summer.

“There’s truth in the rumours ,” said Gerrard.

“I’ve held initial talks with Rangers and the plan is to pick them up in a couple of days’ time.”

When pressed on whether he was confident he would land the job, Gerrard remained non-committal.

“We’ll see! There is [an interest], I’m busy for a couple of days now but I’ll pick it up on Thursday and we’ll see if we progress it.”

Recent media reports have suggested he wants assurances over the financial backing he would receive if he was to take on the job.
