Gerrard's agreed to join Rangers apparently. I think it's a bit win/win for him. If he's a success it's great experience for him and he'll be seen as the man who took the fight back to Celtic and if it goes tits up he can blame all the ongoing turmoil behind the scenes.

Good for Scottish football as well, love him or hate he's a very high profile appointment and while they won't attract some of the top names they used to what you player wouldn't want to go to Rangers and learn from him.

Haven't seen anything about backroom staff but some experience wouldn't go amiss.

At least he'll be able to carry on his BT Sport Champions League commitments for another few years. ;)

Gary McAllister's his assistant.

Apparently wants Skrtel at the club. I think we can expect a few over the hill ex Liverpool players to be linked with the club over the next few months.

Don't know what they've told Gerrard about transfer kittys but a(nother) share issue worth 6m and no outside investment isn't going to get them very far.

He will loan the fuck out of Liverpool and bring in old friends on that budget

He could do worse I suppose. It'll probably work to an extent as well, I remember Kilmarnock doing similar a few years ago, McCoist, Burns, Durrant, Nevin, Alan McNally (there won't be many transfers from Bayern to Killie these days) etc, signed a couple of youngster Colin Mckee and Neil Whitworth from Man Utd for about 350k for the pair, huge money now for them never mind 20 years. It worked though, at the time they were trying to stay and establish themselves in the SPL and they've been there ever since, even if they've had a couple of Evertonesque relegation escapes.
