Gerrard, currently the Liverpool Under-18 coach, will begin his new role in June, and is expected to take former Anfield team mate and ex-Scotland skipper Gary McAllister as his assistant.

Positive talks took place between Gerrard and his representatives and the Ibrox hierarchy on Thursday, with the former Red agreeing a deal in principle.

Now the former England skipper is set to take the reins at Ibrox in his first managerial role, having knocked back MK Dons two years ago.
