Former Liverpool Icon and England Captain, Steven Gerrard have been appointed as Rangers manager on a four-year deal.
The former England Captain, 37, replaces Graeme Murty, who was placed in interim charge following the October sacking of Pedro Caixinha.
Gerrard, who leaves his role as a youth coach at Anfield to take up the Rangers job this summer, captained the Reds and England.
“I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers,” the 37-year-old said in a statement on the club’s website. “I have enormous respect for this football club, and its history and tradition.
“I can’t wait to start this new journey at Rangers as we look to build on the many successes that this club has achieved.”
Chairman Dave King said: “From the very beginning, talks have been extremely positive and we believe that Steven is the right man to drive Rangers forward.
“He was extremely impressive throughout our negotiations and we are convinced that he has the necessary knowledge and temperament to lead the club to the success we all desire.”
Gerrard was an inspirational captain and Champions League winner in a 17-year career at Anfield but as a managerial rookie, he faces a huge challenge to unseat Celtic, who sealed the title on Sunday with a 5-0 thumping of Rangers.
He also faces the challenge of outfoxing his former manager at Liverpool in Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers.
