Steven Gerrard has unsurprisingly admitted that he would love to return to Liverpool in the capacity of manager, though insisted a return to Anfield is far from a foregone conclusion.
Gerrard is currently enjoying a successful spell in charge at Rangers, opening up a 16 point lead over Celtic ahead of this weekend’s game against Hibernian as the club look to end their Old Firm rivals domination of the Scottish Premiership.
Gerrard’s work at Ibrox has often seen him tipped as a potential successor to current Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, though the former Reds captain has admitted that only the ‘best person for the job’ should get the role.
“I get asked this question a lot and, for me, what will be will be,” he told The Athletic. “Would I love to be the coach of Liverpool one day? Is it a dream? Of course.
“It’s a club that means everything to me but we’ve one of, if not the best, managers in the world who has been absolutely incredible since he came through the door and the success he’s delivered in the last couple of years means that Liverpool are in a fantastic place. Long may that continue.
“The club have been absolutely amazing with me throughout my playing career, I still watch all of the games, my relationships are still very strong, I’ve still got ex-team-mates playing in the team and that’s where it is. There’s nothing else to really discuss on it.
“The people who say that… who knows? It’s very difficult to predict the future. Just because I was a good player for Liverpool and had the career I had there, doesn’t necessarily mean you’re next in line to be manager.
“You know and I know, if one day that job ever becomes available, there will be a queue a mile long, full of top-class managers. It doesn’t mean you’re the best person for the job.”
