“Don’t want his style near Liverpool”: These fans react to the prospect of Steven Gerrard replacing Klopp

It seems almost inevitable that when the time comes for Klopp to leave Anfield, Steven Gerrard will be primed to take over. It’s actually hard to tell if he would be able to cut it back down in the Premier League, he’s done a good job with Rangers but has failed at the biggest moments so far.

Today’s Old Firm Derby was a pretty big deal for Rangers fans- they had built a great squad, Celtic were self-destructing and if they romped to a big home victory then Celtic’s run of league titles could be in jeopardy. Instead they went down 2-0 and it was utterly deserved.

Gerrard opted for a five man midfield, fair enough you might think but he did select five central midfielders so the lack of width was staggering. Celtic’s defence has looked so vulnerable in recent weeks yet they absolutely strolled the game.

These fans have taken to Twitter to react to Gerrard’s mistakes today and comment on Liverpool’s possible future if he did land the job:

Let’s not forget Gerrard has done a decent job at Rangers. They were in absolute turmoil when he took over and he got rid of a lot of terrible players and built a squad capable of challenging for the title.

The problem is all he’s really done is get them back to where they should be as an absolute minimum. Liverpool are going through a great time at the moment and he just hasn’t shown enough to suggest he would be worthy of taking over from Klopp whenever the time comes.
