A Rangers spokesperson has been quick to rubbish reports that Derby County have contacted Steven Gerrard with a view to taking up the manager’s job.
Reports are suggesting that Frank Lampard could be set to leave Pride Park to take over at Stamford Bridge. The manager’s job at Chelsea has been left vacant by the outgoing Maurizio Sarri.
The Times suggested Steven Gerrard has rebuffed an approach from Derby County to replace his old England teammate. But Rangers have been quick to rubbish those claims.
“Let’s get one or two things clear,” said the spokesperson, as quoted by the Evening Times.
“Our manager has not been approached and he remains 100 per cent committed to the job that he has here.”
Not that many Rangers fans believe that Gerrard would jump ship.
The Ibrox gaffer said at the recent AGM he was fully committed to Rangers and wants to stay at Ibrox “for a very long time”.
Gerrard has transformed Rangers fortunes on the pitch – to a point – and helped to steady what was a very shaky ship after Pedro Caixinha had left.
And whilst the Chelsea links could mean Lampard won’t be at Ibrox for the friendly with Derby in July, the club have confirmed Steven Gerrard absolutely won’t be in the visiting dugout either.
