Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been strongly linked with the role and is long odds-on to be appointed Rangers boss.

BT Sport presenter Gary Lineker asked Gerrard on television this evening if newspaper reports over the last week, linking him with the job, were accurate.

"There is [interest]. I've held positive talks with them".

"The plan is, obviously I'm busy for the next couple of days now, but I'll pick it up on Thursday and we'll see if I can progress it".

The 37-year-old's only previous coaching experience has come at Liverpool, where he has spent almost a year managing the Under-18s side.

In December, the 43-year-old had been given the job until the end of the season after a spell in interim charge following Pedro Caixinha's sacking.

Gerrard is widely expected to be given the nod following Murty's dismissal and has been locked in talks with the Scottish Premiership side.

Rangers said they hope to be able to release details about Murty's successor "in the near future".

"Graeme has had to contend with hard and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner".

Assistant coaches Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of the club's three remaining league fixtures, starting with fifth-placed Kilmarnock's visit to Ibrox on Saturday.

"He has cut his teeth at Liverpool with the young lads there and at some point Steven is going to step out of that and go into managing men, managing a first-team".

However, an opportunity to test himself as a manager has arisen for only the second time since his retirement after he turned down MK Dons' offer last season, and it seems Gerrard is keen to take it.
