Gerrard says to resume Rangers manager talks this week

Gerrard says to resume Rangers manager talks this week

The Daily Star claim on their website that the Light Blues have finally agreed a deal with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard to take over as their manager, replacing the very recently sacked Graeme Murty - who himself could make a return to Ibrox.

Rangers' 5-0 league humbling on Sunday by Old Firm rivals Celtic (78 points), who wrapped up their seventh consecutive Premiership title, came just two weeks after a 4-0 drubbing by Brendan Rodgers' side in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

Gerrard said on BT Sport 2 on Tuesday evening (7:03pm, May 1, 2018): "Yeah, there's truth in the rumours".

However, on his return to the United Kingdom, the former England captain plans to meet once more with the Rangers hierarchy. "I've held positive talks". I've held initial talks with Rangers and the plan is to pick them up in a couple of days' time.

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

Nicholl, 61, will take the lead role in trying to lead the Ibrox squad through a testing trio of matches.

Murty took over on an interim basis for the second time in October when Pedro Caixinha was axed, before being told in December he would remain in charge until this summer.

Murty was thrust into the hot seat on both occasions and, after the Ibrox outfit's failure to lure Derek McInnes from the Dons, was informed he would have the post until the end of the campaign.

"Graeme has had to contend with hard and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner".
