According to The Athletic, Wolves are interested in hiring Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard as their new boss.
The Lowdown: Gerrard impresses
Gerrard has done a fantastic job with the Gers this campaign. He led the Ibrox outfit to their first major trophy in 10 years, and even took them through an unbeaten campaign in the Premiership.
As such, the Gers’ performances have linked Gerrard with the exit door, with Tottenham being urged to hire the former Liverpool captain (Football Insider). Now, another Premier League outfit are said to be in pursuit.
The Latest: Wolves want Gerrard
Nuno Espirito Santo recently confirmed he would be leaving Wolves at the end of the season (BBC), meaning the Midlands outfit need to replace him.
This latest report suggests Gerrard is amongst the candidates for the role, although Bruno Lage is seemingly the front runner.
The Verdict: He can do better
Given how the Gers have done this campaign, there is bound to be plenty of interest in Gerrard’s services. At some point, it feels likely that he will return to England, and a club such as Wolves would be able to offer him an interesting project and funds to spend. They would also likely be able to offer him an increase on the £2.5m a year (or £48,000 a week) he earns in Glasgow (sportekz.com).
At the moment, though, it makes no sense for him to leave.
Will Gerrard be at Rangers next season?
Winning the Premiership means the Gers have qualified for the third qualifying round of the Champions League. Competing in that tournament, as well as trying to win trophies domestically, is too big a carrot for Gerrard to ignore. For now, he should stay put unless another Champions League outfit comes calling.
In other news, Barry Ferguson makes a claim on this Gers 22-year-old.
