According to BBC, Rangers are confident of appointing former Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard as their manager in the next few days.
Gerrard is currently the manager of Liverpool’s Under-18 team but will end his spell to take on the role in Glasgow. Taking charge of Rangers will pit him against his former Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, who is currently at the helm of Celtic and is attempting back-to-back domestic trebles.
Graeme Murty has been in charge of Rangers since October following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha. Should Gerrard, who retired in 2016 after spending 19 years with Liverpool, take the job at Rangers, would replace Murty.
The former England international knocked back other approaches to join the youth set-up at Anfield, including the chance to lead MK Dons. According to BBC, Gerrard said at the time the offer from MK Dons had “come a bit too soon”.
However, having gained valuable experience by coaching the Liverpool Under-18 team, Gerrard would love to step up and take the Rangers job in order to help the Scottish club challenge Celtic.
A move to Ibrox is tantalising and Gerrard must take it without second thoughts. With speculation about Rangers closing in on making Gerrard as their manager in the next couple of days, here is how Twitter reacted to the news.
Starting his career at pub level….. Oops I meant club level.

Great move by Rangers appointing Steven Gerrard as manager.
If anyone can stop Brendan Rodgers winning a title it’s Gerrard.
He’s done it before after all….#slippyG

I can’t see this working out.
Not. One. Bit.

Absolute nonsense. It will end in failure. Good players don’t automatically make good managers. Maradona and Charlton to name two.

Outstanding player..world class even. But still a gamble by Rangers on a novice manager

Liverpool target doesn’t rule out moving to the Premier League in the future
Christian Pulisic hasn’t ruled out playing in the Premier League someday. The American is one of the best youngsters in the Bundesliga and was brought to Borussia Dortmund by Jurgen Klopp.
Pulisic was quoted by the Express as saying:
“England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing.
“So there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here.”
The Express adds that Klopp bid £11million for the American in 2016 but Dortmund rejected that offer. Pulisic has helped the club to the top of the Bundesliga this season and has two goals and two assists.
The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 20-year-old, and could rival any bid made by the Anfield giants.
The American added that he is enjoying his season with the Germans and knows that tabloid tales are part of the game.
Pulisic would be a wonderful addition to the team, and the youngster can play in a number of positions in the attacking third.
The 20-year-old would not come on the cheap, however, Klopp can make the American better at Anfield. It will be interesting to see what happens in the winter window, and if we get Pulisic, it would be the blockbuster deal of the January window,
“Looks sad, unwilling”, “Cheer up mate” – Some Liverpool fans believe star attacker is unhappy playing for national side
Mohamed Salah was recently in the news after being caught wearing a Playboy shirt. While many commented on his style, the Egyptian posted yet another image before the international break.
Salah is set to play for Egypt in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tunisia on Friday, and the pressure would be on the Liverpool man to get the three points for the Pharaohs.
The Liverpool attacker shared an image suggesting he was ready to play for the national side.

However, some of his Twitter followers weren’t happy with the picture he selected and believed the 26-year-old was unhappy playing for the Pharaohs.
Salah has been exceptional for club and country in recent years with Egypt making it to the World Cup in the summer.
The Reds reached the Champions League final but Salah had to be subbed after 30 minutes due to an injury.
The 26-year-old has 11 goals for club and country this season and will be important for both sides throughout the campaign.
However, the fans weren’t letting go of the picture easily, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.
lol the pic tells about how you feel joining national duty

Liverpool target’s agent claims player is happy at current club
Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the Frenchman is not looking to leave Barcelona.
“The club is happy with Ousmane.
“Dembele doesn’t care about criticisms. Some of them are unfair. He is 20, he plays for Barcelona and he had a great start to the season.”
The agent further claimed that the player has to do better and the Frenchman was sick for a while which led to a few controversies.
Sissoko added that the national team manager and Barcelona’s Eric Abidal were happy with the attacker.
“Ousmane keeps working for a big club, the manager likes him and the same goes for Deschamps. I know Abidal is also very happy with how he is training and working for his club.”
Dembele seems to be doing better when compared to the same time frame last season. The Frenchman has scored four goals from 11 La Liga games and has one from two Champions League ties.
The former Borussia Dortmund player would be an amazing signing for the Reds, but we would have to pay a huge amount to sign him from Barcelona.
The 21-year-old would certainly improve our attack, and it will be interesting to see what our activity would be in the winter window.
