Liverpool legend Ian Rush believes it’s inevitable that Steven Gerrard will one day be in charge of the Anfield club.

Gerrard’s Rangers sealed the Scottish Premiership title last month after Celtic could only muster a draw away to Dundee United.

The Gers remain unbeaten at the summit of the Premiership, with 28 wins and five draws from 33 league games so far this season.

And the way the 40-year-old has revived the Glasgow giants in his first senior managerial role has got many speculating as to whether he could succeed Jurgen Klopp at some point.

Both men are tied down to their current deals until 2024 with the German indicating that he wants to see out his contract with the Anfield club.

And while Rush is hopeful that Klopp remains in charge of Liverpool for some time to come, he does believe Gerrard will one day be in charge of his former club.

He said: “Hopefully, Jurgen Klopp will be at Liverpool a long time because that means they are doing well.

“One day, I’m certain, he will manage Liverpool, but it’s not going to be tomorrow. I’m ­certain that managing Liverpool is in his long-term thinking, but management is a learning curve and Stevie is still learning.

“Next season it’s about ­retaining the Scottish ­Premiership and doing well in Europe.

“If Steven does that, then I think he won’t just be on ­Liverpool’s managerial wish list. He will be on a few.”

Before the Kop icon continued: “What he has done at Rangers is absolutely incredible.

“To stop Celtic ­winning the Scottish ­Premiership for the 10th time on the run was special.

“Rangers also had a good run in Europe and there’s still a chance that they could go through the league season ­undefeated. That’s something special.

“When you’ve actually won the league, it’s sometimes ­difficult to maintain that ­momentum.

“Mentally, you’ve done what you set off to do at the beginning of the season. So to carry that on and remain ­unbeaten will be ­another remarkable ­achievement for Steven Gerrard.

“He won’t allow their ­standards to drop. Next season will be a big test because everyone will want to beat Rangers. He knows all about that.

“Steven has been used to that as a player with Liverpool – he will be up for it.”
