Gerrard kickstarted his managerial career as a Youth coach at Liverpool Fc before moving to Scottish Premier League side, Rangers – where he won his first trophy as a manager.

Gerrard, 43, led Ranger to win the Scottish Premier League, his first trophy as a manager. The Liverpool legend also had a stint at Aston Villa before he was sacked, after securing only two wins in the club’s first 12 league matches.
