Rangers No2 Beale admits Gerrard 'aim' is Liverpool job

Rangers assistant manager Michael Beale admits Steven Gerrard sees his long-term future at Liverpool.

Gerrard is just eight games into his second season as a senior manager in the Scottish Premiership and is keep his focus firmly on fortunes at Ibrox.

Beale told the Liverpool Echo: "We have not spoke about it. It's a compliment of course, but at this moment in time, Liverpool have the best manager for them.

"As a supporter of the club, Steven being a passionate supporter, we don't just support the first team, we follow it through to the U23s and 18s and we have watched some games together.

"We know what is going on at all the youth teams. He is the biggest Liverpool fan and at this moment in time, if he had to choose a manager, it would be Jurgen Klopp.

"I don't think Steven is looking too far ahead, it is a big job and obviously that is the dream - or rather, the aim - for him long term to manage the club.

"But I think Steven would say himself, right now, the best manager for Liverpool Football Club is Jurgen Klopp. Long may that continue."
