Rangers receive injury boost before Killie clash, Gerrard now faces important dilemma - opinion

  Rangers receive injury boost before Killie clash, Gerrard now faces important dilemma - opinion Glasgow Rangers could have Scott Arfield fit for their clash with Kilmarnock at Ibrox on Saturday. What’s the word? The midfielder was absent for the Scottish Premiership draw at Hamilton Academical that saw Rangers surrender the lead. Arfield has missed the past seven weeks of action for the Light Blues having last played against Hibernian on Boxing Day due to an ankle injury.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been told to bide his time before returning to Anfield to take the hot seat by Rangers favourite Richard Gough in an interview with the Liverpool Echo.

Gerrard is on the brink of winning the Scottish Premiership with Rangers, in doing so ending nine years of Celtic dominance north of the border.

However, Gough believes that, whilst he has been impressed with the former Reds midfielder’s job at Ibrox, he should be patient for what would be his ‘dream’ managerial role at Anfield, saying: “The word on the street is that one day he (Gerrard) will come back and manage Liverpool, but I just hope that doesn’t happen for maybe five years or so because he’s still a young man.”

Rangers leading the race to sign £1m-rated 13-goal ace, huge boost for Gerrard - opinion

  Rangers leading the race to sign £1m-rated 13-goal ace, huge boost for Gerrard - opinion Glasgow Rangers are leading the race to sign KV Oostende striker Fashion Sakala this summer. What’s the word? The 23-year-old is widely expected to leave the Belgian side and a host of sides are interested in taking him. According to The Sun’s Alan Nixon, Rangers are front-runners and they hope to agree a pre-contract move for the talented Zambian. Sakala only joined Oostende from Spartak Moscow back in 2018 but has seen his value skyrocket after catching the eye with a string of impressive performances.

Gerrard played 710 times for the Reds during his playing career and lifted a plethora of trophies during that time.

Neil Sullivan, Serhiy Rebrov are posing for a picture:                      Generally speaking, if a player is capable of shining on the international stage, they stand a good chance of making an impact in any of Europe’s top leagues. The following players proved that logic to be flawed, however, by spectacularly failing to live up to the standards they set for their national teams in the Premier League.                                                                              Whether they were too young, felt too much pressure or simply weren’t as good as that one tournament suggested, these players proved to be big disappointments in England.

There has been conjecture regarding the eventual successor to Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, with Gerrard’s name well and truly in the mix, and that was only heightened when the pair signed contract extensions of equal lengths in 2019.

READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT

No Liverpool fan worth their salt would begrudge Gerrard returning as manager one day.

When it does happen, though, it has to be the opportune moment, as a failed reign would be gut-wrenching for all parties. Those in charge should look no further than Chelsea and Frank Lampard for how an icon can return before the time is truly right.

Before Kopites can even consider the possibility of the fairytale reunion with Gerrard, Klopp’s tenure has plenty of life and hopefully further success yet to come.
