Steven Gerrard dropped a huge hint that he is close to taking the Rangers job by last night revealing he would resume "positive" initial talks tomorrow.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has leapt to the defence of disposed Rangers boss Graeme Murty, claiming his former rival was "thrown to the garbage" by the club.

Appearing as a pundit for BT Sport's coverage of the Champions League semi-final second leg between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, Gerrard reaffirmed the rumours.

He said: "The rumours are true, I have had initial talks".

"The plan, obviously I'm busy for a couple of days now, but I'll pick it up on Thursday and see if I can progress it".

"This is a guy who, at this time a year ago, was heralded as a very good coach for young players and I'm sure with first-team players as well, wanting to go into sessions because he really enjoyed his work".

The 37-year-old would become the long-term successor at Ibrox to Graeme Murty, who was sacked earlier on Tuesday.

In a statement , Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said he was happy to resolve what happened "in this productive manner". The men had been waiting for a friend to arrive for a business meeting.

"Graeme has had to contend with hard and challenging circumstances but conducted himself in a thoroughly professional manner".

"The club hopes to be in a position to comment further on the managerial situation in the near future".

Gerrard is ambitious, but has sought assurance before making what would be a huge leap from Academy football as Liverpool U18 coach into the Scottish Premier League.

Kilmarnock's former Rangers striker Kris Boyd on Sportsound: "You can understand the whole lure of coming to Ibrox for Steven Gerrard, but you can also understand why it has taken so long, from when we are led to believe discussions started a week to 10 days ago".

"In terms of the size of the club and knowing Steven pretty well, I think it's a great opportunity for him", Lampard told TalkSport.

"Stevie has done an apprenticeship by working with the youth team at Liverpool but I wouldn't give him any other advice other than to do the due diligence and if he thinks it's the right job, to make certain he believes in himself, like I would certainly believe in him".
