Rafa Benitez gives Gerrard a dose of reality amid managerial speculation

Kristoffer Ajer of Celtic is challenged by Jason Holt of Rangers during the Scottish Premier League match between Celtic and Rangers at Celtic Park

Steven Gerrard emerges as one of the favourites for the Rangers job

Murty believes if he can win his final four games as Rangers boss and lead the Gers into second, he will have done all he can to hold on to the manager's job. "We will support him whatever he wants to do", said Klopp.

"He has had different managers, foreign managers, British managers, so he will have seen different visions, which is important", Benitez said.

His former manager and the current Newcastle boss, Rafa Benitez, has backed Gerrard to succeed as a first team coach, highlighting the range of coaching styles Gerrard will have benefitted from during his playing career.

"Will he end up as a Liverpool manager?"

"When the standard of training is that high, the knock-on effect is improved performances but I just wonder how Stevie would find it in Glasgow".

"I was a little bit surprised when I saw it", Rodgers told a news conference ahead of Sunday's (AEST) clash with Rangers, where Celtic could clinch the Scottish Premier League title.

"I know Steven very well, I know he wants to manage at some point". (He has) massive experience as a player so I would think about him signing for a club.

"It might not be the best time to manage Rangers because of the difficulties there, but what a job, if he gets it half right he will be a God".

"As long as he is not the Everton manager or Man United, then we would still help him if he has questions", added the German coach.

Rangers have been under the caretaker managership of Graeme Murty since Pedro Caixinha was sacked last October.

Rangers are now third in the Scottish Premiership, ten points behind arch-rivals Celtic, whom they play tomorrow at midday. "He's one of my heroes actually over the past 20 years, a great role model and inspirational figure". I had a good relationship with him, similar to what I have here with Scott Brown.
