Barry Ferguson has told Go Radio in a video posted on their official Youtube channel that he does not believe Steven Gerrard would consider a move from Rangers to Tottenham Hotspur – and replace Jose Mourinho, who was sacked on Monday.
Gerrard, 40, has starred since taking over at Rangers in the summer of 2018. The Liverpool legend has become a member of Rangers folklore this season having won the Scottish Premiership – ending Celtic’s pursuit of 10 in a row.
The Scottish Cup remains a possibility after Rangers outclassed Celtic on Sunday afternoon at Ibrox and certainly, Rangers are favourites to win the competition. Mourinho, meanwhile, lost his job on Monday with Spurs way down in seventh place.
Rangers legend Ferguson was asked if he thinks Gerrard could be tempted with a move to Tottenham – and the former midfielder has refused that there is any chance the Liverpool icon will move down south to replace Mourinho at Spurs.
“No I personally think he will stay for another season or two,” Ferguson said. “He has a real chance of doing the double. He knows he needs to get a few trophies in the bag, get that experience of winning as a manager. Then his time will come.
“He has impressed me, he’s getting better every season. I think he will stay, he’s got Champions League football and a good record in Europe. That’s the reason why he will be here next season, even if clubs come calling.”
TBR’s view – Is Gerrard good enough for Tottenham?
While Gerrard is clearly inexperienced and lacking in Premier League know how in terms of management, he has the calibre and reputation to make it as a Premier League boss for years and years. He has everything a manager needs.
At Rangers, he has restored a class and a level of standards needed to take a club forward. Not only that, but the chance to work under Gerrard at a club like Spurs with their facilities would surely tempt plenty of the best. He would take Spurs forward.
