Rangers’ ex-chairman insists Gerrard won’t replace Klopp this summer

Mon 08 March 2021 | 9:47

Dave King, who was Ranger’s chairman when they appointed Steven Gerrard as their head coach, believes the Liverpool legend will stay loyal to his contract despite Jurgen Klopp’s struggles this season.

King said to the

Glasgow Times

: “I think there’s a zero per cent chance of Steven going to Liverpool in the near future.

“I say that for two reasons. Liverpool as a club don’t abandon their managers very easily.

“Klopp has done a fantastic job, they’ve had a difficult season, but he is still a great manager and I think he’ll still be there next season, continuing to be successful.

“Secondly, Steven is not the type of man to break a contract. Steven extended his contract with Rangers full in the knowledge that it would require winning a title and then defending a title.

“Getting into the Champions League was another obvious target. I don’t think Steven will be satisfied with just winning the league. I know he wants to defend that league title and I know he wants to get into the Champions League.”

Gerrard ended the Light Blues’ ten years wait for a Premiership title by crowning as the Scotland champions last weekend.
