Rangers boss linked to PL outfit as previous favourite joins Euro giant

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has once again been linked to the vacant Tottenham Hotspur job as he is mentioned alongside some of the favourites for the role.

The Ibrox gaffer is reportedly amongst five names being linked to job with ex-Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri the latest to chuck his hat into the ring, according to 90min.com.

That report claims that Gerrard and Sarri join Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers and Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo on the shortlist.

The 90min.com report also names Julian Nagelsman of RB Leipzig as a potential replacement but since its publication, the young German coach has agreed to join Bayern Munich.

Nagelsman, 33, was previously named as the favourite for the Spurs role which has been vacant ever since Spurs sacked manager Jose Mourinho earlier in the month [Metro].

The sacking also came in the run up to the Carabao Cup Final at Wembley over the weekend which manager-less Spurs lost 1-0 to Manchester City.

Rangers boss Gerrard was named on a list of five potential Spurs managers by the Telegraph after Mourinho’s exit whilst he was outright linked to the job by 90min.com back in March.

Steven Gerrard has been regularly linked with the jobs around England since taking over at Ibrox but there’s a feeling that there is only one position down south the Rangers gaffer would like to fill.

Despite the fact Gerrard has continued to reiterate his commitment to Glasgow, coverage surrounding the Gers boss and Anfield has persisted in the press.
