Rangers boss Steven Gerrard could be offered the chance to leave Ibrox for the Championship this summer, according to a report from the Daily Express.
Gerrard has already started preparing for his third season with the Gers. But it appears that Bristol City are hoping that they may be able to put the biggest of spanners in the works for the Scottish Premiership side.
The Daily Express reports that the Robins are interested in Gerrard as they look to appoint their next manager.
City parted company with Lee Johnson last week. The Express also notes that Chris Hughton, Ryan Lowe and Lee Bowyer are also wanted at Ashton Gate.
TBR View: Rangers fans can surely remain confident Gerrard is going nowhere
Bristol City have appeared to have the potential to challenge for a place in the Championship promotion picture for a couple of years now. And the Express notes that they are backed by billionaire owner Steve Lansdown.
However, it is arguably incredibly difficult to imagine Gerrard being tempted by the prospect of leaving Rangers at this stage.
The Gers do appear to have closed the gap to Celtic during his time in charge. And it would be a big shame if he did not see the job through to see if he could indeed end the club’s wait for a league title.
The Bristol City post will surely appeal to a lot of very impressive managers over the coming weeks. But it would surely be a huge surprise if Gerrard was one tempted by the opportunity.
