Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed Steven Gerrard to succeed as Rangers manager if the club legend takes the vacant managerial position at Ibrox.

The former Reds midfielder could be unveiled as the new Rangers boss as early as next week after director of football Mark Allen led a delegation to meet the Anfield Under-18s coach.

Gerrard, 37, turned down a move into frontline management with MK Dons two years ago but is preparing to accept an offer to pit his wits against his former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers in Glasgow.

Klopp admitted he can see why clubs would be interested in hiring Gerrard and insisted the club will offer him their full support. 

‘I’m not worried because if, and it is a big if, someone like that would happen, Steven was is and will always be a Liverpool legend so whatever he wants to do we will support him with that,’ the German said.

‘I don’t even know what the situation is at the moment and nobody has told me anything about.

‘I can imagine clubs are interested, he has huge experience as a player and now as a manger so I would think about him as well if I owned a club.’ 

Gerrard is poised to make former Scotland captain Gary McAllister his right-hand man in a new look management team that will be tasked with ending Celtic’s recent Scottish dominance.
