Former Rangers defender Michael Ball has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that he does not think Steven Gerrard is ready to leave Ibrox.
Given what the 40-year-old has managed to accomplish this season, some feel that he would be a good candidate for the Tottenham job, with Peter Crouch believing that he is the sort of manager the north London club should be interested in.
However, the retired striker, who played alongside Gerrard for both Liverpool and England, does not think he would leave Rangers for any outfit other than the Reds.
Would Gerrard leave Rangers for Tottenham?
Not in a million years!
It's not impossible
And it is a sentiment shared by Ball, who cannot see the legendary midfielder departing Ibrox now.
Speaking exclusively to TT about Gerrard’s future, Ball said:
“I think everybody probably knows what Steven’s end goal is. I don’t think Steven’s ready to leave Rangers right now.”
It is not hard to see why Gerrard would want to remain at Rangers next season and even beyond.
The Gers boss will surely want to have a go at defending the Scottish Premiership title against rivals Celtic, while what is likely to be his dream job, the Liverpool manager position, is not available and probably will not be for a while as Jurgen Klopp continues to succeed at Anfield.
