On talkSPORT, as quoted by the Daily Star, Alan Brazil has claimed that Steven Gerrard could soon leave Rangers to become Arsenal manager.

It’s the latest controversial comment made by the radio host, who frequently wades into debates on Scottish football.

He believes that if Unai Emery is sacked by the Gunners, Stevie G would leap at the chance to take over at the Emirates.

“If the Arsenal job comes up, see you later,” Brazil said on talkSPORT on Thursday, as quoted by the Daily Star.

“He’ll do a Brendan [Rodgers].”

Verdict

There are two reasons why this is total nonsense from Brazil.

Firstly, there’s no way Arsenal would even consider offering Gerrard the job.

 

Clearly, Emery is under pressure following a poor run of results. Given the level of discontent surrounding the Emirates Stadium, it is plausible that the Spaniard could be sacked mid-season.

However, the North London outfit are not going to turn to someone who is a season and a bit into his first senior managerial role. Especially, when that person has no connection to the club other than that they spent the vast majority of their playing career with a direct rival.

Secondly, if by some bizarre turn of events, he was offered the job, Gerrard wouldn’t jump ship.

He’s midway through a revolution at Ibrox, where he’s had close to free reign to overhaul playing staff and facilities in the quest for success.

Things have improved markedly since he took over, but the silverware hasn’t been delivered yet.

Right now, Rangers are in the midst of a Premiership title race, have booked a spot in the League Cup final, and are making waves in Europe.

Gerrard is in his element in Glasgow and the only club he’d leave all that behind for, is Liverpool.
