‘Will end up the same way as Neville’ – Fans on Twitter slate pundit for Rangers comments

The Rangers fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments from Arsenal legend and pundit, Ian Wright, as he discussed whether or not the Steven Gerrard would be a good fit at Ibrox. The 37-year-old is currently managing Liverpool’s U18 side but has been heavily linked with a move to Glasgow and Ian Wright, whilst speaking on Sky Sports’ The Debate, backed him for the job and claimed it would be “perfect” for him to start his managerial career.

Steven Gerrard has been coaching with Liverpool’s U18s since he hung up his boots in 2016 after a short spell with LA Galaxy. The Liverpool legend has had his name in the papers over the last few weeks as Rangers have been hotting up their pursuit of a manager for next season. The Gers sacked Pedro Caixinha in October and put Graeme Murty in interim charge of the club whilst they began the search for their next gaffer.

Now, with the season almost over in Scotland and Rangers left dejected with nothing to play for, Gerrard’s appointment would provide a lift for the club who could go into pre-season with hopes of success next year. Although another option may be on the table for Gerrard. Jurgen Klopp’s number two, Zeljko Buvac has been given gardening leave by the club and has been rumoured with a Liverpool exit in the summer. If Buvac was to leave, Gerrard would be the club’s ideal replacement as the club’s assistant manager and the fan would have no complaints with him.
