A number of fans in the Transfer Tavern have been slating Steven Gerrard today. The Liverpool legend was appointed as Rangers boss earlier this month, although today he’s been slated by fans. This is because of the appointment of Frank Lampard at Derby, who everyone seems to think will do a better job than his former England team-mate.
The two worked together for BT Sport as pundits and whilst they won’t be facing each other in their roles as Derby and Rangers manager, the two will always be compared for their similarities on the pitch. Infamously, the two couldn’t play together successfully for England despite their successes at club level for Chelsea and Liverpool respectively. It remains to be seen who will be the more successful in coaching.
Many fans believe that Gerrard will be getting the headstart in management, considering he spent two years coaching Liverpool’s U18s before taking up the role with Rangers. Meanwhile, Lampard has completed his coaching badges and jumped straight into the role, with the Championship’s Derby jumping at the chance to have such a high profile former England captain in charge at Pride Park as the Rams look to regain promotion to the Premier League.
You can read the fans’ verdict on the two here:

Just like how Frank Lampard is a better footballer than Gerrard, he'll be an even better manager than him.

Frank Lampard will inevitably be a better coach than Steven Gerrard, just like he was a better player #SuperFrankieLampard

Lampard at Derby will be very interesting. A better move IMO than Neville to Valencia or Gerrard to Rangers. Hope he struggles from a Stoke perspective but he seems very eloquent and switched on; can see him doing well.
