But former Rangers manager and current Scotland coach Alex McLeish said Gerrard would have to learn on the job if he made the move to Ibrox.

Jurgen Klopp insists that Steven Gerrard will forever be a Liverpool legend, amid reports that the former midfielder is to quit his coaching role and join Rangers. "But whatever he wants to do, we will support him", Klopp told the media ahead of Liverpool's Premier League fixture with Stoke City.

"But the most important thing when you are starting out is when you feel the time is right and when you feel ready, especially when it is about your first job".

"He had a very good first part of the season when all players were available and then we started giving players loans which means other players came into our squad - that is not the nicest part for a youth coach and I can imagine he will not miss that".

"When the standard of training is that high, the knock-on effect is improved performances but I just wonder how Stevie would find it in Glasgow".

"Knowing Steve as I do, he's a brilliant guy", the Hibs head coach said. It wasn't any club for me to manage, it was the right club. They are desperate to put things right. "I'd have loved to work with him as a player, but was a little late for that", the German added.

"If it is not to be me then someone else will have a fantastic job, but I reiterate that we have to go and make sure we focus on Sunday because that's all we can control".

The former Swansea and Liverpool manager, who is waiting on striker Moussa Dembele and midfielder Stuart Armstrong proving their fitness, said: "Yes, of course, for the supporters it is fantastic".

"If I win the next four games, you never know". "He's one of my heroes actually over the past 20 years, a great role model and inspirational figure". John Barnes would be a good example.

"It can be a harsh environment". That's the perception coming from down south.

He has also overseen the development of players like Curtis Jones and Rafael Camacho, who have quickly progressed from the under-18s to under-23 regulars and have trained regularly with the first team at Melwood.
