Former Rangers star Michael Ball has told The Transfer Tavern that Tottenham Hotspur will want to interview Steven Gerrard over their managerial vacancy, but he doubts that he will want to make the move.
Spurs sacked Jose Mourinho last week and the club have appointed Ryan Mason as their interim head coach in his stead.
Mason managed the club against Southampton in the Premier League, becoming the league’s youngest manager in the process, as Spurs came from behind to win 2-1.
Do you think Gerrard could leave Rangers this summer?
They lost to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, however, and they are on the hunt for a new boss to take over once the season is out.
Ball, who played for Rangers between 2001 and 2005, thinks that Gerrard will be on the shortlist for Spurs and chairman Daniel Levy, but he doesn’t think he will be willing to leave the Scottish club.
Rangers have already won the Scottish Premiership title and have yet to lose a game domestically this term.
Speaking exclusively to TT, Ball said: “I think Steven probably is settled at Rangers, big clubs will be looking at him.
“And it’s no surprise that Tottenham will probably ask him for an interview to see what he thinks. But to be fair, I think Steven’s happy where he is right now.”
