Rafa Benitez gives Gerrard a dose of reality amid managerial speculation

Gerrard has been linked with the vacant managerial role at Rangers and could leave Liverpool - where he has been working as the U18 coach - if a deal materialises.

Gerrard was interviewed by the Scottish club earlier this week and is now mulling over an offer to replace Graeme Murty at the end of the season.

"I am not anxious because if - and it's a big if - something happens it was always clear he was, is and will always be a Liverpool legend", Klopp said. "For all managers, when it's your first time it's not necessarily about "a" club, it's about the right club".

I was a little bit surprised when I saw it, If the speculation is right then maybe Stevie feels it is the right club.

He said: "I'm in the role now".

Murty responded to this development with a robust assertion of his own claim to the job when he said: "I'll be fighting as hard as I can in these last four games to finish as high up the table as I possibly can". Because they have a history of giving young managers an opportunity, right the way back to Graham Taylor.

Arsene Wenger won't know what to do with himself once his 22-year reign at Arsenal wraps up at the end of May. Mourinho added: "The two matches we played at their awesome old stadium (Highbury) were unforgettable.

"I am sure it will be a brilliant atmosphere and I am really looking forward to the game on Sunday in relation to the passion and noise of our support and what they can bring for us".

Crouch has spoken about his early days at Liverpool in his latest Daily Mail column, revealing what both Gerrard and Carragher did in a training session to test every player.

Indeed, PaddyPower make him as short as 4/9 ahead of Cardiff boss Neil Warnock and Frank de Boer - who is a former Rangers player. "I am sure that the guys on the Rangers board know what they are doing and they'll go from there".

"Listen, for me I think the kid who's in there has done a decent job at the moment", Gray said on Keys and Gray. "He's one of my heroes actually over the past 20 years, a great role model and inspirational figure". But playing football is totally different from coaching and managing obviously. "That is very hard as a coach".

"It can be a harsh environment".
