‘What A Man’ ‘Because Rangers Are A Bigger Club’ Fans On Social Media React To Gerrard’s Response To PL Club’s Interest

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has turned down an approach from Newcastle, according to the Mirror.

The Gers boss is reportedly on a shortlist of managerial candidates to replace Rafa Benitez at St James’ Park.

However, it appears Gerrard has rejected the Magpies’ advances and is keen on remaining with the Scottish club.

Fans on Twitter are delighted by the news:

It wouldn’t be much of surprise if Gerrard has indeed rebuffed Newcastle’s interest, considering both his loyalty to Rangers and the lack of ambition that Newcastle have shown in recent years.

While he has the opportunity to win titles and cups with the Light Blues, as well as competing in Europe, he would have no such chance managing the Magpies.

It is likely that Newcastle will now move on to other managerial targets who are more likely to take up the position, leaving Gerrard to focus on his duties at Ibrox.
