Former Newcastle United defender Steve Howey believes that Steven Gerrard is a contender to become the next Wolves manager.
The Midlands outfit were set for a fifth season under the guidance of Nuno Espirito Santo until last week’s shock announcement.
Should Wolves hire Lage?
Just over 48 hours before Wolves rounded off their third campaign in the Premier League against Manchester United, Santo confirmed that he’ll be leaving after four years in charge at Molineux.
Former Benfica boss Bruno Lage has quickly emerged as the favourite to replace Santo, but Howey believes that Rangers manager Gerrard would consider the vacant position at Wolves.
Gerrard has just led the Glasgow giants to their first Scottish Premiership title for a decade, whilst also reaching 100 points and going the entire league campaign unbeaten – he currently has a 66% win record north of the border.
The 40-year-old will no doubt have one eye on the Liverpool job, although with Jurgen Klopp unlikely to end his five-and-a-half year stay at Anfield any time soon, another Premier League position could appeal to the Reds legend.
Howey told The Transfer Tavern:
“He’s done a magnificent job at Rangers. They’ve gone a full season unbeaten, won the league by a country mile.
“The last game against Celtic they blew them away. It’s a possibility, it’s a nice club, it’s always been a lovely club, nice ground. Would it appeal to him? Possibly.”
