Former Wigan striker Martyn Waghorn, who scored 44 goals in 78 games during a two-year spell in Glasgow, faced his old club on Sunday as the Scottish Permiership side recorded a 1-0 win over the English Championship side.
And speaking after the match, Gerrard praised Phillip Cocu's side, adding: “They’ve got quality throughout the team and off the bench.
"They’ve got a coaching staff that have won leagues in Holland, they’ve got quality throughout the team.
“At the front, Waghorn’s worth £9 million, and they have a top-level goalkeeper.”
Mark Warburton brought the former Manchester United kid to Glasgow in 2015, before he was sold to Ipswich for around £1 million in 2017. His former for the Latics led to the Rams landing the 29-year-old in a deal that could reach as much as £7.5 million.
The Gers manager singling out Waghorn has led many fans of the Ibrox side to wonder if the forward is a target.
One Gers fan said on Twitter: "The way he instantly knows what waghorn is worth makes me think we’re interested in him."
Another supporter added: "I personally think Waghorn and [Barrie] McKay under Gerrard would’ve been crucial first-team players and still would."
