Lampard, who managed Chelsea from 2019 to 2021, needs to pick his next role carefully. With Norwich struggling in the Premier League, it was obviously too big a risk.

This has just added more fuel to the fire about him becoming the new Rangers manager.

Could he be a popular choice to manage Rangers? He is one of the better candidates that has been mentioned.

He managed Derby to a playoff final spot in his first season as manager, which they lost to Aston Villa. He gave youngsters such as Mason Mount and Billy Gilmour an important role in his Chelsea team.

This could be the one advantage he does have, his ability to work well with young talent and promote from within.

Rangers have some fantastic young players at the club right now and with only really Patterson breaking through to the first team recently, Lampard might be the man to get the most out of the academy.

Talks with Lampard could take part this weekend [Scottish Sun]. With numerous other candidates being mentioned such as Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Ronald Koeman, competition is tough.
