Ferguson names potential future Liverpool boss who could take Reds job ‘the moment’ Klopp leaves

After being appointed as manager of the Reds in late 2015, Jurgen Klopp finally secured his first piece of silverware last season as his side defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the final of the Champions League last month.

Klopp undoubtedly has a bright future at the club but he is human nonetheless, and that means at some point, the German will have to be replaced by someone at Anfield.

According to former Rangers midfielder Barry Ferguson, Steven Gerrard could become Liverpool manager ‘the moment’ Jurgen Klopp leaves.

The ex-Liverpool star left Anfield as one of the greastest players in the club’s modern history, scoring the first goal in the famous comeback in 2005 against AC Milan in Istanbul.

Gerrard is currently the boss of Scottish side Rangers, as he works on building a reputation in his career as a football manager after retiring from playing not too long ago.

And Ferguson has given the Englishman his full backing to become the next Liverpool boss.

“Let’s be honest, we’ve all known from day one that Steven Gerrard hopes to go back to his own spiritual home at Anfield the way [Frank] Lampard has returned to Stamford Bridge,” he wrote in his column for the Daily Record.

“But I just hope he has to wait an awful lot longer than his old England team-mate. And the good news is if his dream is to manage Liverpool one day first he’s going to have to take Rangers back to the top of Scottish football. If he can do that and win the title he’ll walk straight back to Merseyside the moment Jurgen Klopp decides he has achieved all he can in England.”
