Alan Shearer: 'No-brainer' for Steven Gerrard to take Rangers job

Gerrard has reportedly held talks with the Scottish club about becoming their new manager, and more talks are expected this week.

The Celtic manager has slammed the treatment of the Ibrox stand-in boss in the aftermath of the champions' one-sided 5-0 trouncing of their Glasgow neighbours to seal their seventh consecutive Premiership title.

Sources told ESPN FC on Saturday that Rangers are confident of appointing Gerrard and have a four-year contract prepared for the Liverpool legend.

According to Sunday Mirror journalist Andy Dunn, Liverpool have given their former Talisman their blessing to take the Rangers job as they see it as a kind of loan move that will see him return to Anfield in the future with the experience needed to coach at the highest level.

Meanwhile, Alan Shearer believes that Gerrard taking Rangers job would be a "no-brainer". He has had talks and they were positive.

"Last year he was under-20s coach and everyone was saying "he's a good guy and he's doing very well", the former Liverpool boss told talkSPORT on Monday.

'I certainly think there's legs in it but there's a bit to go'.

Nor surprisingly, James saw things a bit differently, although not before trolling reporters for a moment. As for James, he said he thought it was clean - albeit with a big smile that seemed to suggest otherwise.

"He's got more this week".

"He's a really ambitious guy Stevie, he always has been from the day he walked on to the training field at Melwood as a young lad".

"I don't think there is a clear direction or plan of where the club wants to go".

"But the thing is, I think he is probably needing some more reassurances regarding what they can give him". You have to think there's some credibility in what they are trying to do.

"He seemed excited, but without the confirmation of what it actually really entailed". Brendan Rodgers' team are vastly superior to Rangers and are on a much stronger financial footing.

He is right to seek assurances about money to spend on transfers, but surely there are easier managerial jobs for Gerrard to take and begin his career in the dugout.

He has been heavily backed to take up the role and use his vast experience throughout the game to perform well as a manager.
