Glasgow Rangers legend Ronald de Boer has suggested it could be difficult for the Gers to hold on to manager Steven Gerrard this summer.
The Lowdown: Gerrard linked with exit
Gerrard has enjoyed a hugely successful campaign with the Gers as he led to them to the Premiership title after an unbeaten league season (BBC).
The Latest: De Boer worried
De Boer has revealed he is worried about Gerrard leaving Ibrox this summer. He said (via The Daily Record):
“He has done so well and he has improved so many players, guys like Alfredo Morelos, who has done well over two or three years.
“I’m sure he will be on the list of the big Premier League and big clubs across Europe. I’m sure they will be eager to get him and it will be difficult for Rangers to keep him.
“However, Rangers are also a massive club and hopefully he still has ambitions with them.”
The Verdict: Still something to prove
A return to England will be on the cards for Gerrard at some point. After all, he is an Englishman, and as a Liverpool legend, he has been heavily linked with a return to the club (The Mirror). The Premier League in itself is a more attractive proposition than the Premiership.
Will Gerrard be at Rangers next season?
Having said that, Gerrard has enjoyed success in Glasgow and, after winning the league title, the Gers will have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League group stages. Given all the hard work needed to reach that stage, the 41-year-old will surely want to see how far his side can go in Europe’s elite club competition.
In other news, Rangers have been urged to sign this striker.
