Fabrizio Romano has appeared to confirm that ex-Rangers boss Steven Gerrard IS in talks with Poland over the vacant manager’s job with the country’s national team.

The transfer specialist took to social media to provide an update on the reported talks between both parties, with Gerrard out of work since being fired from his post at Aston Villa in October.

Fabrizio Romano believes that the discussions are “ongoing” and claims that Poland will speak with Steven Gerrard again with the ex-Rangers boss in the running for the job.

“Discussions between Steven Gerrard and Poland are ongoing,” tweets Romano.

“Waiting for his final decision but it’s being considered, as reported by Polish press earlier in the week.

“Polish FA will speak again to Gerrard in order to proceed with discussions.”

Fabrizio Romano ‘confirms’ Steven Gerrard in talks with Poland

Fabrizio Romano claiming that Steven Gerrard is in talks with Poland is something of a big deal as – whilst he’s been wrong in the past – the transfer journalist is one of the most high-profile online figures in sports media.

That would suggest the Italian has done his homework on this and it’s interesting to consider that the former Rangers manager could be set to take a step into international management.

Poland are currently looking to replace former manager Czeslaw Michniewicz, whose contract was not renewed following the World Cup in Qatar.

Poland put in a valiant effort, getting knocked out in the last 16 via a 3-1 defeat to beaten finalists France, and Steven Gerrard could be the man to walk into the national team’s dugout.

Ex-Rangers boss Gerrard to go from Glasgow to Gdansk?

Gerrard was first linked to the Poland job last week via reports originating in the Eastern European country, with the Liverpool legend one of a number of names mentioned.

Roberto Martinez, Herve Renard, Vladimir Petković, Paulo Bento and Nenad Bjelica have all been linked from abroad, with Polish options Marek Papszun or Jan Urban also mentioned.

Undoubtedly a hero at Rangers for the development he overseen at the club during his time in Glasgow, plenty have a sour taste in their mouth regarding the manner of the Scouser’s exit.

Gerrard’s untimely sacking from Aston Villa might have him ruing the decision in hindsight but the manager’s time in Glasgow will be remembered fondly for delivering 55 and stopping 10IAR.

As an aside, with the Anfield legend’s wife famously thinking Scotland was too far away, one wonders what she reckons about Warsaw!

Meanwhile, one European giant is reportedly interested in a Continental midfielder who’s been extensively linked to Rangers.
