Ex-Celtic defender Elliott: Fantastic Gerrard future England coach

Former Celtic defender Paul Elliott can see Rangers boss Steven Gerrard taking the England job in the future.

Elliott is impressed with the job Liverpool legend Gerrard has done with Rangers and believes he has a bright future as a coach.

"To come to Scotland has been fantastic for him. He was a fantastic player and I always thought he would naturally transition to the coaching profession. There was just something with him, he is different, he thinks differently," he told BBC Sport.

"He is a natural leader and leading is in his DNA. In fact, I think he is a long-term future coach of England, potentially. I value him so highly."
