Steven George Gerrard MBE (born 30 May 1980) is an English professional football manager and former player who manages Scottish Premiership club Rangers.
He spent the majority of his playing career as a central midfielder for Liverpool, with most of that time spent as club captain, as well as captaining the England national team. Widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time,
Gerrard was awarded the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year award in 2005, and the Ballon d'Or Bronze Award. In 2009, Zinedine Zidane and Pelé said that they considered Gerrard to be the best footballer in the world.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst has been sacked by Rangers after just over a year in charge at Ibrox. The Light Blues are a whopping nine points behind Celtic in the Scottish Premiership title race and supporters lost faith in the Dutchman with loud boos at recent games.
Van Bronckhorst admitted after the 1-1 draw against St Mirren in Paisley last weekend that he was due to hold talks with the board over his future during the World Cup break.
And that match proved to be the last of 65 he took charge of. The Dutchman led Rangers to the Europa League final last term and lifted the Scottish Cup after taking over from Steven Gerrard, but has failed to replicate the form shown towards the end of last season this term.
