Andy Robertson jokes about ‘difficult’ Steven Gerrard situation with Liverpool prediction

Rangers: Gerrard says Gers have has no success yet

Andy Robertson has admitted that he expects Steven Gerrard to succeed Jurgen Klopp in the future – and that creates a difficult situation for him at the moment in time. Gerrard is a living legend among Liverpool fans with his career going down in history at the club.

Now a manager at Rangers, Gerrard has made no secret of his desire to one day to take the hotseat at Anfield.

Both Gerrard and Klopp’s contracts at Rangers and Liverpool respecitvely expire in 2024, sparking speculation that will be when the Reds icon takes the reigns.

But Gerrard’s main focus at the moment is steering Rangers to their first Scottish Championship in 10 years having seen Celtic dominate the top flight.

And they look strong favourites to win the title this season with Rangers currently holding an impressive 21-point lead over their bitter rivals.

For Robertson though, that creates a “difficult” situation as he can’t fully get behind Gerrard.

Appearing on Jamie Carragher’s the Greatest Games Podcast, conversation between the two turned towards Robertson’s allegiance to Celtic with Liverpool legend Gerrard in charge of Rangers.

And the Liverpool full-back jokingly admitted to having mixed feelings about Gerrard due to his position at Rangers.

“It’s a difficult situation isn’t it?” Robertson said with a chuckle.

“You come into Liverpool’s training ground. He’s plastered all over the place, everyone loves him, everyone wants him to do well.

“Of course I want him to do well, but I’ve been brought up as a Celtic fan to not like anything to do with Rangers.”

Carragher then quickly jumped in to say: “So that’s an exclusive, Andy Robertson doesn’t like Steven Gerrard!”

Robertson burst into laughter before going on to predict Gerrard as Klopp’s successor.

“Not quite because I think he’ll end up here one day. All jokes aside he’s done an unbelievable job up there,” he added.

“He’s took it to a new level this season and Celtic have struggled to keep up.

“Hopefully over the next six months Celtic close the gap and get to 10 in a row because it would be historic – but it’s not looking too good just now unfortunately.”

While Rangers look to have already sewn up the title in the Scottish Championship, Liverpool still have plenty of work to do in order to defend their Premier League title.

They fell behind Manchester United earlier this week with the two old foes set to face off on Sunday in a crunch match at the top of the table.
