Celtic boss Rodgers questions Gerrard's Rangers move

Posted April 29, 2018

It has come as no surprise to Jurgen Klopp that Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is attracting interest from Rangers, who want the former midfielder to become their new manager.

Gerrard, who worked under Rodgers during his three-year spell at Anfield, has been touted as a shock contender to take charge at Ibrox next season, replacing interim boss Graeme Murty.

Rangers is also an institution, and I would say the same about Celtic.

"It is not necessarily about a club, it is about the right club". But the most important thing when you are starting out is when you feel the time is right and when you feel ready. Sure there are big pressures involved but that's what big clubs are like.

Rodgers turned to coaching at 20 after injury ended his playing career and so had earned his stripes before moving to Celtic two summers ago which would be a very different road to the one a 37-year-old rookie has taken. It's all about your own feeling and getting to the right club.

I think I've done a really good job so far and I want a chance to continue.

"It is hard to see a point in the near future where Celtic will be knocked off their perch but I would imagine Stevie would get assurances from Rangers that he would be allowed to develop".

'CARAVAN' CROSSING? Migrant Group ARRIVES at US Border
Tensions flared after a Mexican immigration official suggested they go in smaller groups to the border station. The caravan was organised by a group called Pueblos Sin Fronteras , Spanish for People Without Borders (PSF).

Rodgers added: "I was a little bit surprised when I saw (he was linked)".

"I'm sure it will be positive for him".

Neil Lennon, meanwhile, believes Gerrard only needs to talk to John Barnes to understand what a "huge risk" coming to Glasgow would be. But Barnes endured misery in his first management job at Celtic, his only season ending prematurely in 2000 following Scottish Cup defeat by Inverness. I think in his head, it will be that.

"He is a brilliant guy and has been one of my heroes".

"It can be a harsh environment". That's the perception coming from down south.

'Not too many top-class players can be managers just like this.
