The Liverpool skipper is set to end his career-long association with Liverpool at the end of the current campaign to switch to MLS champions LA Galaxy at the age of 35.
But with the American season running through the summer months, there is the possibility of the midfield general heading back to Europe to play during the division’s down time.
Gerrard is against the idea of facing Liverpool if he comes back, so should the Reds not pursue a short-term deal for the current captain, Celtic are hopeful they van lure him back across the Atlantic Ocean.
The door to Anfield is thought to remain open for ‘Stevie G’ though, with a three month off-season period likely to allow him to head back in early 2016 to maintain his fitness.
A number of big name players to have switched to MLS have returned to Europe on short-term loan deals, including David Beckham, Landon Donovan, Robbier Keane and Thierry Henry.
