Steven Gerrard admits he is keeping ‘one eye’ on Liverpool’s Premier League title bid.
The former Liverpool captain, who spent 17 seasons at Anfield, is now manager at Scottish side Rangers, but admits he has followed his former club’s progress this season as they bid to end a 29-year wait for a league title.
Jurgen Klopp’s side currently lead the Premier League title race by two points, though they have played a game more than second-placed Manchester City.
The Premier League was the only major honour to elude Gerrard during his distinguished Liverpool career, and the 38-year-old admits he would be the ‘happiest man in the world’ should his former side be crowned champions this season.
“Believe me, I’m still feeling the pressure,” Gerrard told reporters after starring in a Liverpool v AC Milan Legends game.
“It’s in the back of my mind. I’ve got a day job now and all my focus is obviously on Rangers, but I’ve got one eye on Anfield and I just hope the lads can go and get us over the line because I’d be the happiest man in the world.”
