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.
They say it's better the devil you know and the Ibrox board could go for a familiar face as the hunt begins for Giovanni van Bronckhorst's successor with Michael Beale the odds-on favourite to make a Rangers return.
The Londoner made a flying start to his first job as a manager at QPR after going out on his own following stints as Steven Gerrard's sidekick at both Rangers and then Aston Villa.
However, he is currently on a five-game winless run with four of those defeats as he gets to grips with life out on his own.
