Steven Gerrard will resume Rangers talks on Thursday

Steven Gerrard

Former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan has advised Steven Gerrard that the pressure he will be under if he takes the Rangers job is unlike any other in football.

Murty was relieved of his duties yesterday morning after the Ibrox board decided it was no longer tenable to leave him even in temporary charge following last Sunday's record 5-0 Old Firm league defeat at Celtic Park.

To Gerrard's credit, there was no b*****it in his reply, he admitted talks had taken place, adding that they had been "positive".

Earlier today, Rangers dispensed with the services of interim boss Graeme Murty, with his assistant Jimmy Nicholl set to handle the remaining three Premiership matches of the current campaign.

Murty, the former under-20s coach, was appointed on an interim basis after the departure of Pedro Caixinha last October.

The Parkhead mauling saw Rangers drop three points behind the Dons, with only goal difference keeping them in front of fourth-placed Hibs.


After the match, Murty did not speak to the media.

Any potential agreement would see Gerrard take over his first senior position as a first team manager since retiring from the game.

Former players Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of the team for Saturday's visit of Kilmarnock, Tuesday's trip to Aberdeen and the final day encounter against Neil Lennon's Hibs at Easter Road a week on Sunday.

'As you build for big games, your focus should be on the field and on performance and I'm disappointed for him that it wasn't the case, ' he told talkSPORT.

"The guy went in there and he's done his very, very best in what looks like, from the outside, to be very, very trying and hard circumstances". "I certainly think there's legs in it but there's a bit to go".
