Gerrard, who has been named Manager of the Year by the Scottish Football Writers' Association after guiding Rangers to the title, detailed how he has been able to pick Ferguson's brain during a number of telephone calls.
"I'll let you into a little secret: I've had a couple of conversations with him," Gerrard explained.
"Since I retired we have parked our rivalry up and he gave me time on the phone to bounce a few things off him, a few questions to do with the management up here at Rangers.
"He was fantastic in those conversations. At some point moving forward I'd love the chance to sit down with him and have a coffee. He's agreed to that and that's fantastic from his point of view because he doesn't have to give me his time, especially being a rival. But I think that goes to show what type of man he is. He's not just the iconic manager we all know."
