Newcastle keen on Rangers boss Gerrard

A fresh update has emerged on Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, regarding Newcastle’s interest in his services.

What’s the talk?

According to The Sun, the Rangers head coach is on a three-man shortlist Newcastle have prepared to replace Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park.

The report claims that Bruce is set for the chop and PIF, who have completed their takeover from Mike Ashley, are eyeing three managers to replace him.

Brighton’s Graham Potter and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers join Gerrard on the list, with German Ralf Rangnick also being eyed for a sporting director position.

Will Gerrard leave Rangers before 2022/23?






This update on Gerrard will surely leave Rangers fans feeling concerned about the situation. Newcastle’s takeover has seen them linked to players like Raheem Sterling, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Philippe Coutinho and Mauro Icardi, with that level of spending power potentially an attractive prospect for managers being approached for the job.

Gers supporters will be particularly worried as this fresh development follows on from a report earlier this month claiming that Gerrard is ‘intrigued’ by the Magpies’ head coach position. The ex-Liverpool man has been put on alert by PIF’s takeover and has shown an interest in learning more about their plans, with this latest update now revealing that the interest is mutual.

Who scored a hat-trick on their debut?

Rangers fans would be devastated if Gerrard departed for Tyneside as he has been brilliant for the club. In 185 matches to date, he has won 2.15 points per game and won the Scottish Premiership title in style last season as they went unbeaten and achieved 102 points. This shows that he has been able to build a winning squad, as the Gers sealed their first domestic crown since 2010/11.

He helped to end Celtic’s dominance of Scottish football and is now on course to retain the crown as Rangers sit top of the Premiership after eight games, with six wins, one draw and one defeat.

Gers fans would not want to see their leader leave before the end of the season as it could potentially derail their title challenge and allow the Hoops to reclaim the title.

This is why supporters will be concerned that Newcastle have now narrowed down their search to three names, with Gerrard being one of them. Hopefully, from a Rangers perspective, they go with Potter at Brighton or Rodgers at Leicester and the Gers will be able to watch the Liverpool legend lift another trophy next summer at Ibrox.
