Steven Gerrard appointed as new manager of Rangers

"He was extremely impressive throughout our negotiations and we are convinced that he has the necessary knowledge and temperament to lead the club to the success we all desire".

If Gerrard can turn the tide in Glasgow he will make himself a hero among the Rangers fans and also put himself in the shop window for a potential return to Anfield as Liverpool manager one day.

West Bromwich Albion hosts Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (Watch live at 10 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) as the Baggies aim to stay afloat in the Premier League.

Of course, Gerrard and Torres had a fantastic relationship during their playing days at Liverpool as they very almost helped the club win their first ever Premier League title during the 2008/09 season.

In a career spanning over 19 years, Gerrard made 710 appearances and won nine trophies for Liverpool and was capped 114 times by England.

Brown is, of course, one of Celtic's most hated players among the Rangers support, but was there any need to bring him up at Gerrard's unveiling. "I know the size and I know what the supporters are all about".

Rodgers expressed delight at the prospect of coming up against Gerrard next season but insists his resolve to continue his success at Celtic Park will not be changed.

However, the infamous slip from Gerrard during the Reds' defeat to Chelsea all but handed Manchester City the title that season. Always, when you have someone with this passion for football, with people around with more experience, they can do well. Since I stopped playing football, I have missed that pressure of fighting for three points at the weekend. The lesson the club seems to have learned is that this job is far too big for an under-20s coach who has never managed at senior level. It's not easy, because it is not easy for them to compete against Celtic.

"I need to get my feet in the door and my teeth in the job before I can weigh up exactly where we need to strengthen, where we need to improve". I know it's going to come.

"In terms of targets, i just want to win football matches".

Gerrard was asked whether he had spoken to Celtic boss Rodgers before accepting the post.

"Our measure is always ourselves", he said.

'He's a long-time friend of mine.

In an exclusive interview, the Liverpool forward told CNN's Becky Anderson that Gerrard was his favorite player.

Lack of experience?The only box Steven didn't tick was he hadn't managed before.
