Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard has been appointed manager of Glasgow Rangers.
Gerrard signed a four-year contract to replace for Graeme Murty, who was dismissed on Tuesday after losing 5-0 to rivals Celtic last weekend.
It’s the first managerial job for the 37-year-old ex-midfielder, who had been coaching Liverpool’s youth team.
“I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers,” Gerrard, who will officially take charge this summer, said on Rangers website on Friday.
“I have enormous respect for this football club, and its history and tradition.
“I can’t wait to start this new journey at Rangers as we look to build on the many successes that this Club has achieved.”
Rangers are third in the Scottish Premiership, 13 points behind Celtic, who clinched a seventh consecutive title with their win on Sunday.
