Steven Gerrard responds to questions about replacing Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has responded to questions about potentially replacing Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager.

The former Reds captain is a club legend at Anfield and fans would no doubt love to see him back one day after his great playing career there.

It also looks like Gerrard is showing real potential in coaching as well, having just won the title with Rangers after some superb performances this season.

Liverpool, by contrast, are struggling under Klopp in recent weeks, with the team in undoubtedly the worst patch of form since the popular German tactician took over at the club.

Despite running away with the Premier League title last season, Liverpool now face a struggle to even get into the top four this term, and this has led to some talk over a surprise change in the Anfield dugout.

Ladbrokes were recently offering odds of just 2/1 for Gerrard to be LFC manager by the start of next season, but the man himself insists he’s backing Klopp, and that the club’s fans are too.

“We have one of the best managers leading our club at the minute,” Gerrard told ITV.
