Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is reportedly close to penning a new contract to extend his stay at Ibrox.
According to the Scottish Sun, the 39-year-old has “all-but agreed terms” for a fresh bumper deal that will keep him with the Gers until 2024.
The report details that the Scottish giants hope to officially announce his contract extension in the upcoming days and that talks have been ongoing for weeks.
Gerrard took his first job as a senior manager with Rangers back in 2018 on a four-year deal, but his hard work is set to be rewarded with an extension.
Despite failing to win silverware in his first season in charge, he became a popular figure with the Light Blues faithful and started to put his stamp on the squad.
They have now certainly closed the gap to Old Firm rivals Celtic and are in pole position to qualify for the Europa League knockout rounds too with one group match to go.
Rangers sit second in the league table just two points behind Celtic, who they also face on Sunday afternoon in the Scottish League Cup final.
Ultimately Gerrard is going to be judged on what he wins at a club like Rangers, but there is no doubt his team are now far more consistent and look in great shape to win a trophy.
It would be a marquee moment if he can lead his side to cup success at the weekend and it could even be a catalyst to help their title bid.
There may be some grumpy supporters if Gerrard has still not won anything at the end of the season, but there is no doubt he’s a vibrant young manager improving the team and the board clearly have faith in him.
