Wayne Rooney Says It’s Only a Matter of Time Before English Clubs Try to ‘Snatch’ Steven Gerrard

Wayne Rooney Says It’s Only a Matter of Time Before English Clubs Try to ‘Snatch’ Steven Gerrard

Wayne Rooney has claimed it’s only a matter of time before cash-rich clubs in the English Premier League attempt to prise Steven Gerrard away from Rangers.

Liverpool legend Gerrard was a surprise appointment at Ibrox in the summer, but his first job in senior club management has went pretty well so far, with the Gers qualifying for the Europa League group stages, as well as looking a lot more organised than last season’s shambles of a squad.

Gerrard signed a four-year contract with the Light Blues when he arrived in Glasgow, but his former England colleague Rooney isn’t too sure he’ll be there to see it out.

Speaking via an interview in today’s the Sunday Times, the ex-Manchester United striker said: “It’s brilliant for those two [Gerrard and Frank Lampard] to go into management.

“I’m sure they’ll both learn from it and in two or three years there’ll be clubs in the Premier League coming to try and snatch them away.”

Gerrardhas undoubtedly improved Rangers since he arrived in Glasgow, but the Gers still remain as outsiders to win their first Premiership title since 2011, with most bookies pricing them at around the 5/1 mark, but you might be able to find a slightly better odds by researching sites such as www.bonus.co.uk.

Gerrard has always spoken openly about his desire to return to Anfield one day and take up the managerial reins at his boyhood club, but what do you think of Rooney’s comments?

Will English clubs already be watching Gerrard’s progress with envious eyes?
