Liverpool legend and current Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard is reportedly being lined up by the club management to replace Jurgen Klopp as manager amid speculation over the German's long-term commitment to the Reds.

There is a growing belief that Klopp will take the opportunity to become manager of the German national team if they decide to part ways with current incumbent, Joachim Low and now Mirror reports that their principal owner, John W. Henry and chairman, Tom Werner have been keeping a close eye on Gerrard’s work at Rangers.

Gerrard has shown impressive managerial traits at Rangers as they look the favourites to win the Scottish Championship - with his leadership adding credibility that the former England skipper has all the attributes to succeed Klopp at Anfield.

A move for Gerrard would not only have the backing of the fans but also club legends like Sir Kenny Dalglish, who has been impressed by his work north of the border. The report also goes on to state that the 40-year-old would resist the overtures of other Premier League sides in favour of returning to his former club.

Despite his status as a club legend, Gerrard if appointed manager would have a tough time replacing Klopp considering that the German has led the club to the one Champions League honour and their first Premier League title in three decades.
