Rangers confident of keeping Steven Gerrard amid Tottenham links
According to news from Express, Rangers are confident of keeping Steven Gerrard amidst links to Tottenham. The former Liverpool icon has been tipped to replace Jose Mourinho at Spurs but the Scottish outfit are assured that he will continue at the Ibrox.
Tottenham Hotspur let go of Mourinho on Monday night amidst the chaos created by the announcement of the European Super League. The team hadn’t been performing at its best for a while now, with results on the decline and the prospect of no European football for next season looming large.
And Daniel Levy decided to swing the axe on Monday morning, replacing Mourinho with former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason on an interim basis. Ever since, a number of managers have been linked with the vacant Tottenham hot seat, with Gerrard among them.
There has been ample talk about Gerrard’s future after he guided Rangers to the Scottish Premier League. It was believed that he would return to England and manage his former side, Liverpool. While he harbours that ambition, he did concede that Jurgen Klopp could stay at the club for another 10 years.
Tony Cascarino believes Gerrard can be the man for the job.
“One manager who looks capable of filling that role is Steven Gerrard. People say he will be the next Liverpool manager but maybe not, or, if so, perhaps he will do another job before then. What he has done at Rangers is extraordinary: the way he handles himself in interviews and the huge improvement of the team on the pitch. Would he excite the likes of Harry Kane? I would say he would.”
However, Rangers believe that Gerrard will remain at the club and a potential approach from Spurs is not of concern. With the Champions League returning to the club next season, it has been claimed that Gerrard is all but staying.
