TalkSPORT pundit Simon Jordan believes Glasgow Rangers are just a “stepping stone” for Steven Gerrard and he would not think twice about leaving Ibrox for Liverpool.
Jordan tips Gerrard departure
As the Reds struggle in the Premier League, there have been reports Jurgen Klopp may be interested in becoming manager of Germany (The Mirror). Gerrard is therefore being linked with a move to Anfield.
Jordan believes the Gers boss would not think twice about making the move back south of the border. He said:
“What would be the point in tying Steven Gerrard down to a longer contract because you’ve already got him for three years,”
“You don’t know what those three years are going to look like. You could go up to five or six years and increase the liability for what you’ve got to pay him if he fails.
“Is it not fair to say, whether Rangers like this or not, it’s universally accepted that perhaps Rangers will be a stepping stone for Steven Gerrard.
“Jurgen Klopp leaves Liverpool next month and Steven Gerrard is offered the job and he is going to turn round and say ‘no, I’m staying at Rangers’?.
“He’ll be out of the door quicker than a quick thing from quick land.”
Gerrard seems like a dead cert for the Liverpool job at some point during his career. After all, he is a club legend for the Merseyside outfit, and his success in Scotland will only improve his chances of some day managing the Premier League champions.
Will Gerrard be at Rangers next season?
However, things are going very well at Ibrox at the moment. The Gers are currently 18 points clear of Celtic at the top of the Premiership (BBC) and are within touching distance of a first major trophy in 10 years, while they are also still in the Europa League and the Scottish Cup. Next term, they could well be competing in the Champions League. Gerrard will surely not want to miss out on that, even if the Liverpool job were to become available. He has plenty of time to return to his former club – there is no need to rush.
