Gerrard tells the truth about him replacing chelsea-bound Lampard

Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard, has agreed that he is aware of speculation concerning him with the Derby County post.

However, the Ex Liverpool captain insists he is focused on the new season with the Scottish club.

Gerrard is believed to be Derby’s first choice, to replace Frank Lampard, who is expected to resume in Chelsea this week.

But Gerrard has emphasize that he has no intention of leaving “one of the biggest clubs you can manage”.

He said to Sky Sports: “Yes I’m aware of it but I have nothing to say on it.

I’m very happy here, it’s a privilege to be the Rangers manager. My focus is on the upcoming season.

“It’s very Peculiar to when there’s noise around players. I tell the players to stay focused on the job and that is what I will continue doing. There is nothing really to add to that.”

Asked if he wanted to re-affirm his commitment to Rangers, Gerrard added: “Do I have to do that for your sake ?

Nothing has changed in my mind. I was very lucky and appreciated the opportunity I got 12 months ago.

“I’m happy to be at Rangers, managing one if the biggest clubs you can manage, so there have been no changes so far in terms of my focus.”
