Frank Lampard Urges Steven Gerrard to Take the Rangers Job

Graeme Murty leaves Rangers amid Steven Gerrard replacement reports

His sacking also comes in the wake of heavy speculation that Gerrard is heavily backed to take the helm at Rangers in the summer.

Frank Lampard has urged his former England team-mate Steven Gerrard to take the vacant manager's job at Rangers, with fans waiting patiently for news over a new boss.

"I have held initial talks and I have plans to pick them up in a couple of days' time", he told BT Sport. "I'm busy now for a couple of days now but I will pick it up on Thursday and we'll see if we can progress it".

The job would represent a huge task for the inexperienced 37-year-old considering that he has never managed at senior level.

Gerrard is widely expected to be given the nod following Murty's dismissal and has been locked in talks with the Scottish Premiership side.

Clinton defeated Trump by 5 percentage points (around 136,000 votes) in Colorado that year. But unaffiliated voters are only allowed to mail in one of those ballots.

Any prospect Murty had of extending his tenure beyond the end of the season was effectively ended by the 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic at Hampden on 15 April.

"Graeme has had to contend with hard and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner".

Rangers' next game is at home to Kilmarnock and the club said assistants Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will "take charge of the team for the three remaining matches of the season".

Rangers said they hope to be able to release details about Murty's successor "in the near future".

If Gerrard fails to have the desired impact - or even just fails to progress from where Rangers now stand, then the gap will just remain the same or widen even further - which is the last thing Scottish football needs.
