Ex-Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson says his former teammate Steven Gerrard may be interested in leaving Rangers at the end of the season if the right offer comes along.
The 40-year-old is set to guide the Gers to their first Scottish Premiership title in ten years but Johnson feels Gerrard could be tempted to leave after securing the championship:
“Managerial roles are all about timing. If the right job opens up at the end of the season he might look at it. He’s stopped Celtic getting their tenth win in a row and Rangers have won the league when three or four years ago it looked unlikely, so what more can he do?… He can only go down from here. If there is a big enough offer this summer I think he would definitely be interested.”
Johnson is not likely to have any inside knowledge about Gerrard’s future, even though the pair played together for six years at Anfield. He seems to be merely speculating about his future options.
There will, of course, be a time when Gerrard does opt to leave Ibrox but, there are not many jobs in the UK bigger than the Light Blues, and he will undoubtedly know that.
Were an English Premier League club to come calling, it’s likely that he would seriously consider it, but there has been no speculation regarding such an offer in recent months.
