Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said that he plans to spend “a very long time” in charge of Rangers.
The ex-England international skipper took over the role of manager at Ibrox in the Summer after a spell in charge of Liverpool’s under-18 side following his retirement as a player.
There has been much speculation that he could one day succeed Reds boss Jurgen Klopp as the main man at Anfield – but Gerrard appears to be planning a lengthy stay in Scottish football.
“I’d like to thank Dave for the support he’s given me since day one and also the rest of the board.” he said.
“They’ve been really supportive to me and my staff and I’d like to thank Mark and Stewart, who I work with on a daily basis.
“Without the support behind myself and my coaching staff, we wouldn’t have been able to have achieved what we have so far.
“I can assure everyone that we’ll give every bit of time and effort we’ve got to continue moving the club forward on the pitch and we’ll continue trying to attract the best players possible to help bring success back to this incredible club.
“I feel I’m in such a blessed position to be here as manager.
“I hope I stay here for a very long time and we share some really good times together.” he finished.
The thirty-eight year old has led Rangers into the Europa League this season after a lengthy qualification process over the Summer and has got them on the tails of rivals Celtic domestically.
