Steven Gerrard agrees new Rangers contract


Steven Gerrard has agreed a new deal with Rangers, keeping him at the helm at Ibrox until 2024. The announcement is likely to be made today, just 24 hours before Rangers face Celtic in the Scottish League Cup Final.

Gerrard has enjoyed a successful start to life in management since taking over at Rangers last summer.

During his first season in charge, he guided the ‘Gers to a second-place finish in the Scottish Premiership.

He also led the club to the semi-final of the League Cup and the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup.

This year, he has continued to impress, with Rangers currently sat second in the table and two points behind Celtic. Tomorrow, he has the chance to win his first trophy as Rangers boss as they face Celtic in the League Cup final.

Gerrard had been tipped to take over from Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool when the German leaves Anfield.

But with that unlikely to happen anytime soon, Gerrard is set to commit his future to Rangers long-term.

The 39-year-old is said to be keen to topple Celtic’s dominance at the top of the Scottish premiership, with Rangers currently two points behind.
