A leading English tabloid newspaper has pushed for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard to become the next boss of Tottenham Hotspur and convince Harry Kane to stay at the club.

The Mirror has profiled Gerrard in an “obvious” look at who should be the next Spurs boss following the sacking Jose Mourinho earlier in the month.

The paper claims that Gerrard to Spurs makes “perfect sense” on numerous fronts not least the one regarding talismanic striker Kane who could leave the club this summer.

The Mirror report goes into the relationship between Gerrard and £175m-valued forward Kane and discusses the attacking prowess with which the Liverpool legend has Rangers playing.

Ibrox gaffer Gerrard has also previously described wantaway Kane as “a perfect role model and an ambassador for the game”.

The report also comes after Tottenham reportedly missed out on two of the top reported targets for the position.

RB Leipzig manager Julien Nagelsmann was an early favourite but has since moved to Bayern Munich whilst ex-Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers is said to have distanced himself from the job [Sky Sports].

But whilst the English tabloid might be linking Rangers boss Gerrard to the job there’s a real sentiment that when the manager does leave Ibrox there’s only one place he’s going.

And despite the fact that Gerrard has consistently reiterated his commitment to Ibrox, links to that particular job continue to persist in the British press.
