Steven Gerrard has shrugged off rumours of a switch to the Premier League to take over Newcastle United this summer.
The Rangers boss, when asked about it during the club’s pre-season training camp in Portugal, said via the Chronicle Live: “Fake news. Not that I’m aware of.”
Gerrard took the Scottish giants to second in the Scottish Premiership table in his first season as a first-team manager as the Ibrox side scored the most goals in the division, though it was not enough to stop Celtic from claiming yet another league title.
With Newcastle on the lookout for a replacement for Rafa Benitez, who left the club at the end of his contract, he would fit the criteria the club are reportedly (per the Chronicle) looking for when it comes to knowing the Premier League, even if it is as a player.
Indeed, these comments should serve as good news for Rangers supporters, who can look forward to next season with him at the helm.
His signings this summer are also pointing towards the former England international building for Rangers’ future with the Scottish side signing the likes of Joe Aribo and George Edmundson as well as Sheyi Ojo on loan from Liverpool, three players under the age of 23.
Gerrard starts his second season with Rangers in the Europa League this week against St. Joseph’s, and for fans, it will be the beginning of what could be an exciting campaign for the Glasgow side.
