Beale: Gerrard's long-term ambition still to manage Liverpool
As Liverpool and Rangers legends clash today at Ibrox in Glasgow, the link between the two club is probably as strong as it's ever been (or every likely to be), with former Liverpool captain and legends Steven Gerrard managing the Scottish club.
Gerrard also continued the Liverpool connection at the club, taking Gary MacAllister and Michael Beale as assistant manager and first-team coach.
But according to the Rangers first-team coach, Gerrard's ultimate ambition is still to manage Liverpool. In an interview with the 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."
The 39 year old Scouser is in his second season at Ibrox and his team currently sits top of the Scottish top division by 2 points, with 8 games played.
