According to the reports from STV, Steven Gerrard has agreed on a new contract with Rangers, and the deal will be announced imminently. The former England midfielder has extended his stay at Ibrox until 2024. It is clear that Rangers board are happy with what Gerrard has brought to the club so far.
Gerrard’s impact so far
In terms of tangible returns, Gerrard is still trophyless after the latest chance to win the League Cup final went begging. However, one cannot blame the manager for the derby loss as Rangers thoroughly dominated the game, and the English manager got his tactics more or less spot on.
The English boss has certainly prepared a team good enough to challenged Celtic for the title. Gerrard’s impact has also been seen in the transfer market as the English manager has been able to lure some top talents from the south of the border.
In his short time with Rangers, Gerrard has already been linked with a move to the Premier League as he was linked with Newcastle United in the summer. Even though he is young in his managerial career, he has managed to show Ibrox that progress has been made this season.
Rangers have also made it to the Europa League in back to back seasons. Now, they have an excellent chance even to make it to the round of 32. So it’s clear that the former Liverpool midfielder has done a lot of things right at Ibrox.
Liverpool: A threat to Rangers
The Bears may be tying him down on a new contract, but it cannot be ignored that if Liverpool’s job comes in the future, then it would be too good for Gerrard to ignore. Luckily for Rangers, the Reds have a brilliant manager in Jurgen Klopp for now who is contracted to stay until 2022. Liverpool have tried to get the German on a new deal, but he has remained coy and is yet to commit his future for the long term. Hence, after 2022, we might see the Merseyside club going after Gerrard if Klopp doesn’t agree on an extension.
This new contract will not act as a significant deterrent for Liverpool, but it will probably ensure that Rangers get a decent compensation fee in return. Therefore, even though Rangers might be able to tie him up on a new deal until 2024, there is no guarantee that Steven Gerrard would see off his contract especially if a chance to manage Liverpool arises.
Until then Rangers will hope that Gerrard can continue his excellent work and deliver the Premiership title sooner rather than later.
