Steven Gerrard wants assurances over Rangers resources, says Danny Murphy


The Celtic manager has slammed the treatment of the Ibrox stand-in boss in the aftermath of the champions' one-sided 5-0 trouncing of their Glasgow neighbours to seal their seventh consecutive Premiership title.

Danny Murphy says Steven Gerrard is waiting for assurances over his transfer budget before he agrees to takeover the manager's job at Rangers. He has said that he spoke to him over the weekend, and his former teammate was happy with how the discussions with Rangers went. He has had talks and they were positive.

The pair played together at Anfield for seven years, and are known to have remained friends, and speaking on talkSPORT this morning, via the Sun, Murphy explained: "The truth is there's nothing definitive". He's got more talks this week. He always has been from the moment he walked onto the training pitch at Melwood as a young lad.

"You can't be too proud to ask for a little bit of advice if you think it's going to be useful to you, but I don't think you want that advice thrust upon you just as you're about to take the job".

The club's latest financial figures showed they had received £17.7million in interest-free loans from shareholders and other investors by the turn of the year, at least some of which they plan to turn into equity.




After chairman Dave King cast fresh doubt on whether the ex-Scotland global defender would have his contract renewed in the summer - ahead of the Gers' 4-0 Scottish Cup semi-final hammering from Rodgers' rampant Celts in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals - it emerged that Steven Gerrard was the frontrunner to take over in the build-up to yesterday's confrontation.

"I don't think there is a clear direction or plan of where the club wants to go".

Murphy said: "The only thing with that, I was thinking really, is that how do you get concrete reassurances with something like that?" You have to think there's some credibility in what they are trying to do. I think that's a good thing for Rangers.

"He seemed excited, but without the confirmation of what it actually really entailed".
