Steven Gerrard is expected to sign a new contract to keep him as Glasgow Rangers manager until 2024.

Former Liverpool captain and current Glasgow Rangers manager has confirmed his intent to extend his stay at Ibrox.

Gerrard has overseen Rangers mount a serious challenge to cross-town rivals Celtic.

His tenure has ultimately been the most successful of any manager since the clubs return to the Scottish Premier League.

He is yet to win any silverware with the club.

But the powers that be at the Ibrox club believe that he is the man to bring back the glory days following the clubs near extinction.

In an interview reported by Talk Sport, Gerrard himself confirmed a deal is close.

He said:

“The club approached me a week to 10 days ago about a new deal.”

“It was a pretty simple decision. I want to stay around. I’m happy here.”

“I’m as hungry and determined to get the good days back here as I ever was.”

“Talks have been pretty straight forward and positive.”

“When it’s signed and announced, you’ll have to wait and see.”

“I’m very grateful for the opportunity to manage and lead this football club.”

“I’ve enjoyed my time here. I think we’re going in the right direction.”

“I believe if we keep doing the right things and work hard, our day will come.”

Rangers lost out to Celtic in the league cup final recently.

However, they are only two points behind them in the league.
