Scottish club Rangers named former Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard as their manager on a four-year deal on Friday.
The former England captain, who has coached Liverpool’s Under-18s after hanging up his boots two years ago, replaces Graeme Murty for his first management role.
“I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers. I have enormous respect for this football club, and its history and tradition,” Gerrard said in a statement on Rangers’ website reut.rs/2Ky2cv8.
“I can’t wait to start this new journey at Rangers as we look to build on the many successes that this Club has achieved.”
Gerrard made 504 Premier League appearances for Liverpool and also helped the Merseyside club win the Champions League title in the 2004-05 season.
