Rangers boss Gerrard reveals he’s close to signing new long-term contract

Steven Gerrard has revealed he is close to committing his future to Rangers by signing a new long-term contract at the Scottish side.

The former Liverpool captain took charge of Rangers in 2018 and has impressed in his first role in senior management, leading the club to a second-place finish in the Scottish Premiership last season.

The Glasgow club have once again shown signs of improvement in the current campaign and are embroiled in a tight title race with Old Firm rivals Celtic, the club now keen to tie Gerrard down on an extended deal until 2024.

Speaking ahead of Rangers’ Europa League clash with Young Boys, Gerrard said: “The club approached me probably a week, 10 days ago about a new deal and it’s a pretty simple decision as far as I’m concerned.

“I’m happy here and I’m as hungry and determined to get the good days back here as I ever was so talks have been pretty straightforward and positive.

“When it’s signed and announced you’ll have to wait and see.”

Gerrard has guided Rangers to the brink of qualification to the Europa League knock-out stages, and the club will secure their passage with a point at Ibrox on Thursday night.
