Rangers on Friday announced former Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard as their new manager.
He is joining the Scottish Premiership club on a four-year deal.
Gerrard said in a statement on the club’s website,“I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers,”
“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.”
Gerrard made 504 appearances and scored 120 goals in his 17 year career with Liverpool and won the Champions League in 2005.
He represented England 114 times, scoring 21 goals and captaining the Three Lions at the 2010 and 2014 World Cups.
The former midfielder joins Rangers as they sit third in the league table with 65 points.
His goal over the coming seasons will be to close the sizeable gap on runaway leaders Celtic, who are managed by his former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers.
