Fans are divided after Steven Gerrard agrees to be next Rangers Manager

After weeks of rumours, Rangers have confirmed the appointment of former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard as their their new manager. The ex-midfielder has agreed a four-year deal at Ibrox.

This will be Gerrard’s first managerial role, he has been working as an academy coach with Liverpool last April.

He will take over from Graeme Murty, who was sacked earlier this week. In his final game, Murty lost to 5-0 to Glasgow rivals Celtic, who clinched their seventh straight title.

Murty has been on a short-term contract since October after Portuguese manager Pedro Caixinha was sacked.

Rangers currently sit 13 points and two places below their arch-rivals Celtic.

Despite a promising start, the Gers’ formed dipped in March after a 3-2 loss to Celtic. The humiliating loss at Parkhead last weekend was the final nail on the coffin for Murty.

Pundits and fans have been divided over the appointment, with many saying that this is not the right move for Gerrard…
