Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has emphatically rejected the notion that he’ll be heading to Liverpool anytime soon as he tells the Ibrox support “let’s go for more”.

Speaking exclusively to ITV’s Peter Smith the Ibrox gaffer discussed his emotions after winning the club’s legendary 55th title and those persistent links to Anfield.

When pressed on the subject the self-confessed Liverpool fan was clear that not only did he want Jurgen Klopp to remain in charge, but that the Anfield legions do as well.

“The Liverpool fans don’t want me to be the manager of Liverpool Football Club,” said Gerrard [ITV].

“They want Jurgen Klopp to continue as manager and I am totally with all of them. I wish you knew how much we loved Jurgen Klopp.

“We have one of the best managers leading our club at the minute. I love him and we hope he stays for a few more years. I’ve got a job here, I don’t think its helpful to talk about this – I hope Jurgen stays at Liverpool for many years.

“Liverpool is my club. I had a fantastic journey as a player. I’m doing a completely different career path now. I’m happy in the job and role I’m in now.

“Is it a dream for me to one day be the Liverpool manager? Yes, it is. But not yet and who’s to say I’ll ever be good enough? Who says I’ll be the owners’ choice?

“There’s a lot of managers on this planet who would all like the chance to manage Liverpool.

“I think we need to respect the guy that’s in charge first and foremost because he’s done an incredible job.

“He’s taken me to places in the last two or three years which have been incredible. The feeling. Me, my family and all the Liverpool supporters would all back that up.

“For me, let’s just get behind Jurgen.”

That much pretty much resoundingly seals it and any Rangers fans out there nervously chewing their fingernails over Gerrard’s future can definitely relax.

Any rivals fans can also get used to the notion that the Anfield legend is at the very least planning on being the Rangers manager until 2024 – a contract he signed last season.

It’s also just as well Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp feels the exact same away about his future at Anfield as the German dismissed links to a high-profile job in his homeland.
