Jamie Carragher would love to see Steven Gerrard one day manage Liverpool, but he believes the Anfield great must be ready to take on the role.
Gerrard’s Rangers sealed the Scottish Premiership title last month after Celtic managed to score only a draw away to Dundee United.
The Gers remain undefeated at the top of the Premiership, with 28 wins and five draws from 33 league games so far this season.
And the way the 40-year-old revived the Glasgow giants in his first senior managerial role has given many speculations as to whether he could succeed Jurgen Klopp at some point.
Both are tied to their current jobs until 2024, and the German has indicated he wants to see a contract with the club at Anfield.
“Someone else will do the job and with a number of good German managers I am sure the German FA will find a good solution,” Klopp said last month when he was excluded from his candidacy to replace Joachim Low as Germany’s manager.
“I have three years left in Liverpool. It’s simple. You sign the contract and stick to it. I kept to the contracts in Mainz and Dortmund. ”
And while Carragher believes those associated with Liverpool would love nothing more than to see Gerrard at the helm for years to come, he warned that the timing must be right.

“I would love to see him one day as Liverpool manager. I think everyone in the club would like that, “he told Sportist.
“But we would all want that when Stevie was fully equipped and fully prepared, because we would obviously want him to be successful.
“So that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be the next manager, but I think management is an essential time, and if Jurgen Klopp leaves tomorrow and Stevie wins the league, it would feel like a natural improvement.
“Now, Jurgen Klopp in two years, maybe Celtic went back to the Rangers and didn’t win the league, and then, although Stevie is still the same manager, or probably an even better manager in two years with more experience, it would be like‘ Yes, but Celtic won the league, right, ”that’s exactly the way we think in football. “
