The former Liverpool and England global midfielder has revealed that he has held talks with Rangers and plans to speak to the Gers again this week.

The Daily Star claim on their website that the Light Blues have finally agreed a deal with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard to take over as their manager, replacing the very recently sacked Graeme Murty - who himself could make a return to Ibrox.

"Yes, there's truth in the rumours", Gerrard, who has no direct experience of Scottish football, told BT Sport on Tuesday in his role as a pundit on their Champions League coverage. I've held initial talks with Rangers, and the plan is to pick them up again in a couple of days' time.

"The plan is, obviously I'm busy for the next couple of days now, but I'll pick it up on Thursday and we'll see if I can progress it".

The job would represent a huge task for the inexperienced 37-year-old considering that he has never managed at senior level.

In December, the 43-year-old had been given the job until the end of the season after a spell in interim charge following Pedro Caixinha's sacking.

Murty has been interim manager since October and his last game was Sunday's 5-0 loss to Celtic, a result that clinched the Scottish Premiership title for Rangers' biggest rival.

Rangers said they hope to be able to release news about Murty's successor "in the near future".

"Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson have already started preparing the team for the match against Kilmarnock on Saturday and they will be in place for the two remaining fixtures, against Aberdeen and Hibernian".

Gerrard is poised to fill the now vacant managerial position at Rangers in Scotland.
