Jurgen Klopp has said he is “not worried” if Steven Gerrard becomes manager of Rangers, saying the club will “support him whatever he wants to do.”
A source close to Liverpool confirmed later on Friday that the Merseyside club would not stand in Gerrard’s way if he wanted to leave his current role, echoing Klopp’s words from his news conference.
“I’m not worried. If, a big if, something happens, it was always clear,” Klopp said ahead of Liverpool’s game home game against Stoke.
“Steven is, was and always will be a Liverpool legend. We will support him whatever he wants to do. Simple as that. It’s no decision. I don’t know the situation at the moment. I can imagine that clubs are interested in signing Stevie.
“He has massive experience as a player, and now as a manager. I would think about him as well if I owned a club. One day it will happen, either here or somewhere else, but it’s his decision and he’s old enough to make it himself.”
