Harry Redknapp Claims 43 Year Old Is Open To Taking “Fantastic” Rangers Job

Harry Redknapp Claims 43 Year Old Is Open To Taking “Fantastic” Rangers Job

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Frank Lampard would be interested in replacing Steven Gerrard as Rangers boss.

The 43-year-old withdrew from the running to become Norwich City head coach earlier this week and, when asked whether Lampard would consider moving north of the border instead, Redknapp replied:

“I would have thought he’ll want to get his career back going again. And maybe Stevie has gone and set his on the right track by going to Rangers. So going to Scotland and going to Glasgow Rangers wouldn’t be a backwards step. It would be a fantastic job for him.”

It must be pointed out that Redknapp is Lampard’s uncle, although he doesn’t seem to be claiming any inside knowledge on whether the ex-Chelsea manager is a contender for the job.

The bookmakers still have Giovanni van Bronckhorst as the red-hot favourite to succeed Gerrard in the Ibrox hot seat. However, the odds on Lampard are shortening fast.

Ex-Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes is third in the running, despite some reports suggesting that he isn’t being considered for the job. Former Rangers midfielder Gennaro Gattuso is fourth favourite, while the likes of Russell Martin and John Terry have also been mentioned as potential candidates.
