Rangers Football Club manager Steven Gerrard insists he wants to stay at the club for a very long time, despite the possibility of becoming manager of Liverpool in the future.
The former England captain was appointed as manager of Rangers on a four-year deal in the summer, after spending time as a youth coach at Liverpool.
Speaking at Rangers’ AGM, Gerrard expressed his sense of contentment at the club and insisted he wished to remain at the Ibrox for a very long time and win silverware for the Gers
He said, according to Evening Times:
“I always get asked the question do you want to be the Liverpool manager, are you the next Liverpool manager, or do you want to manage down in England. I am satisfied and happy in the position I’m in.”
“When I signed up to this, I didn’t want to sign up short term. It’s impossible to make a difference and plan for success in a short space of time. When I signed up, I was hoping to sign up for a long time.”
“Of course there has been a positive start but I understand that we have to continue to work just as hard to stay in this position because it’s a tough job. Management’s tough.”
“It’s a brutal business. In an ideal situation, we get the time to make a difference.”
“It’s no stepping stone. This is a huge job, a fantastic job that I appreciate the opportunity to take on. I’m happy. I don’t want to be anywhere else.”
