Liverpool legend and current Rangers boss Steven Gerrard has been reportedly denied an approach made by Derby County for the top job, should Frank Lampard take charge at Chelsea this summer.
It has been rumoured that the Blues are lining up their club legend and fan-favourite Lampard as the new manager at Stamford Bridge as their boss Maurizio Sarri is leaving for Juventus, and Derby County are looking forward to get his former England teammate as his successor.
Gerrard, currently on a four-year contract at Scottish side Rangers since 2018, wants to remain committed to the club for now, even though been reported as the potential future boss of Liverpool, in a similar fashion that linked Lampard with the Blues.
“Today, I am very happy to be at Rangers and happy to do this job,” the 39-year old said last November.
“I want to give the best of myself for Rangers.”
“But nobody knows the future…Liverpool is a very special place for me. One day, maybe it will happen…or not.”
The former England captain is preparing for next season with The Teddy Bears as he is aiming to dethrone their rivals and defending champions Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, with already securing the signings of Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie, Greg Stewart and Steven Davis.
