Rangers boss Gerrard 'flattered' by Klopp's Liverpool plan for him

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard was happy to hear Jurgen Klopp tipping him as his successor at Liverpool.

But he expects and hopes Klopp to be in position at Anfield for many years to come.

"I was surprised and flattered at the same time," Gerrard said when asked about Klopp's comments.

"But when you read the quote really carefully, like I have, it said, 'if I get sacked tomorrow' he thinks Steven Gerrard should be the next Liverpool manager.

"Jurgen Klopp's not getting sacked tomorrow. I don't want him to get sacked tomorrow. He's doing a fantastic job."
