Frank Lampard has tipped Steven Gerrard to take over as Rangers manager, describing it as a "great opportunity" for his former England teammate.

The retired midfielder is now in charge of the Reds' under-18 side, but Lampard is close pals with his old rival and works with him on BT Sport. "I'm busy for a couple of days now, but the plan is to pick them up on Thursday and we'll see if we can progress it".

Gerrard, 37, hung up his boots in 2016 after a 12-month stint with LA Galaxy and now manages the Liverpool under-18s.

The gap between Rangers and Glasgow rivals Celtic looked as big as ever last weekend when the Hoops hammered them 5-0 to seal a seventh consecutive Scottish Premiership title while off the pitch the club still owes over £15 million in loans and recorded a £6.7 million net loss in their latest accounts.

Rangers have endured a hard recent period and have sacked Murty off the back of a 5-0 defeat to Celtic in the Glasgow Derby.

Rangers says the club "hopes to be in a position to comment further on the managerial situation in the near future".

"Graeme has had to contend with hard and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner".

Assistant coaches Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take over dugout responsibilities for Saturday's home game with Kilmarnock, while Rangers chiefs look to lift the gloom now sitting over Ibrox.

"Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of the team for the three remaining matches of the season".

Celtic legend Commons thinks that the pressure will be well and truly on the new Rangers boss to stop the Bhoys and he admits if he were in Gerrard's shoes he would not like to be given the job at the Gers.
