Steven Gerrard Responds to Derby Rumours, Says He’s at ‘One of the Biggest Football Clubs You Can Manage’

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has responded to reports linking him with a move to Derby County – and insists he’s already at one of the biggest club’s in football.

As we told you last week, speculation was rife in the media that Gerrard was to be targeted by the Rams if and when their current manager Frank Lampard departs to take the Chelsea job, but a Rangers spokesman insisted there had been no approach from the Championship side.

However, earlier today, the Daily Record reported that Derby were willing to offer Gerrard a £2.5 million per year salary, and a whopping £8 million bonus if he wins promotion to the Premier League.

But when asked about Derby’s alleged interest, Gerrard said via the Sun: “Yes, I’m aware of it. But there’s nothing to say on it.

“I’m very happy to be the Rangers manager. My focus is on the up and coming season.

“I think it’s very similar to when there’s noise around players. I ask the players to stay focused on the job.

“Nothing has changed in my mind.

“I was very lucky and appreciative of the offer that I got twelve months ago.

“I came in very focused in season one and nothing has changed in my mind.

“I’m delighted to be the Rangers manager. I’m managing one of the biggest football clubs you can manage. Nothing has changed.”

So, with a comment as emphatic as that, surely there’ll be no more rumours of a Gerrard exit – or will there?
