Video: Brendan Rodgers Gives His Opinion on Steven Gerrard Taking Over Rangers

Brendan Rodgers has given his opinion on Steven Gerrard taking over at Rangers.

Quickly following Celtic’s 5-0 victory over Rangers to seal the Scottish Premiership and their seventh title in a row on Sunday, the Ibrox club have moved to name their permanent manager for the next four years.

And Gerrard is that man, someone Rodgers knows very well from their time together at Anfield between 2012 and 2015.

Gerrard was Rodgers’ captain and played a big part in his team throughout that period – so it’s no surprise that the Hoops manager was happy to see his former player get a big job.

Speaking at his press conference ahead of the game against Hearts at the weekend, Rodgers said:

It’s no surprise too that he can’t wish Gerrard well in his new role, but it’ll be very interesting to see what Rodgers does in response to Rangers inevitably strengthening under their new manager.

The Hoops do have other things to concentrate on just now though, with the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell later this month representing an opportunity to secure a double treble.
