Liverpool fans buzzing for Old Firm derby due to Gerrard link

Steven Gerrard has cemented himself as a Liverpool legend due to his 17 years of service.

The retired midfielder never won a Premier League trophy with the Reds, but he did guide them to the Champions League crown in 2005, upsetting the odds along the way.

Gerrard also won the FA Cup twice, the League Cup three times, as well as the UEFA Cup and UEFA Super Cup.

Now, the Liverpool-born star is embarking on a new career in management.

The 38-year-old’s first foray into his new role began in June when he officially took over as Rangers boss.

Gerrard gained coaching experience prior to that by working for Liverpool’s academy, but his first test has been in Scotland.

So far so good for the ex-England international as he is 12 games unbeaten heading into Sunday’s Scottish Premiership clash against Celtic at Parkhead.

Understandably, some Liverpool fans have taken an interest in the first Old Firm derby of the season, particularly as Gerrard will be going head to head with his former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers.

Some Liverpool supporters have been posting their thoughts on Reddit.
