Ally McCoist laughs off Steven Gerrard Rangers exit rumour as Ibrox icon insists HE is more likely to get Everton gig
The Liverpool legend has been linked with the role at Goodison Park but the former Scotland man is not having it. The Rangers boss was surprisingly linked with the vacancy at Goodison Park after Carlo Ancelotti left to join Real Madrid.
Steven Gerrard is part of the furniture when it comes to British football.
Steven Gerrard and Jason Cundy
The legendary midfielder is not only aand England icon, but he has also gained admirers north of the border by guiding Rangers to their first Scottish Premiership title in a decade.
As such, Gerrard is one of the most recognisable people in the country when it comes to the beautiful game and a coup for any journalist lucky enough to secure an interview with him.
And one such reporter who was excited about getting that very opportunity was Jason Cundy who played for the likes of, Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth across his own career.
Ally McCoist Laughs at Everton Links with Steven Gerrard
Pundit Ally McCoist laughed with incredulity at links putting Rangers manager and ex-Liverpool hero Steven Gerrard in the frame for the Everton job. Carlo Ancelotti’s sudden switch from Merseyside to Madrid caused inevitable upheaval at Goodison Park, with work already underway to identify a shortlist of suitable candidates to replace Ancelotti. However, one surprise candidate in Gerrard was thrown into the ring by The Athletic, who claim he was one name being discussed by Everton chiefs. Since his November 1998 debut for the Reds, the midfielder has scored 186 goals and laid on a further 144 assists for Everton’s arch-rivals.

Cundy's fake Gerrard interview
However, football fans will now be most familiar with Cundy when it comes to his work on radio station talkSPORT for whom he often presents alongside Andy Goldstein.
With appearances on shows like The Sports Bar and Goldstein's Sports Bar, there's no denying that Cundy is a revered and experienced broadcaster.
But even a seasoned road presenter like himself was feeling the pressure this week when he thought that an interview with the aforementioned Gerrard was evolving into a complete disaster.
In actual fact,had conspired with and - who does an uncanny rendition of Gerrard - to pull off a hilarious prank that had Cundy sweating.

He's a target
Cundy hilariously pranked
With the ruse that Cundy would be interviewing Gerrard over Zoom, it was feigned as though the Liverpool legend's camera wasn't working, allowing Farley to work his magic with an impression.
From that point onwards, Farley was given instructions from Goldstein to ensure that the interview was a living hell for Cundy and the five minutes that transpired with nothing short of side-splitting.
That might sound over the top, but with the video having amassed almost 3,000 retweets and 15,000 'likes' at the time of writing, we like to think we're not alone in finding it an absolute hoot.
So, just trust us on this and have a whale of time by watching the prank in all its glory down below:

Bye-bye Kamara: Rangers must seal swoop for £3.15m-rated ace, Gerrard would love him - opinion
Rangers have been linked with Sparta Rotterdam ace Abdou Harroui recently and the Dutch U'21 international could be the man to replace Glen Kamara at Ibrox. What’s the word? According to Football Insider, Rangers are showing interest in the 23-year-old after sending some of their scouts to watch him play for the Netherlands at the European Under-21 Championship. The report suggests that Gerrard is in the market for midfield reinforcements ahead of next season and could be tempted by the Sparta Rotterdam midfielder, who was a mainstay in the Eredivisie last term.
It was actually… ????
This gets seriously AWKWARD! ????????

Incredible scenes. Cundy's reaction when he finds out it wasn't Gerrard all along is pure gold.
The penny drops for Cundy
To be fair to Cundy, he handled the situation with brilliant humour considering he was under the illusion that Gerrard was wrongly calling him 'James' and insulting the size of his head at points.
It must have crossed his mind at some point that he might have been fooled, but you've got to credit Farley for putting on such a good impression that he never fulled convinced himself it was a prank.
And it all came together for a fantastic joke at the end of which Cundy could reassure himself that he hadn't struck up the most random of feuds with one of the greatest footballers of all time.
He has, however, taken centre stage in one of the greatest videos of 2021 during which he happens to get an absolute battering. Ah well, Jason - you win some, you lose some, I guess.
