Many Liverpool fans would no doubt love to see one of their most beloved former stars take over at Anfield at some point in the future, and McManaman has an exciting insight for those Reds supporters.

‘I know all of Steven’s coaching credentials and I think he needs more experience of course but he’s going to get that in spades at Rangers,’ the pundit told CaughtOffside.

‘He’s already got them into the Europa League which is the first box ticked. I think he’s got a huge future – as long as he’s got the right chairman and the right investment behind him he’s certainly got the coaching credentials to go very far.
