Wolverhampton Wanderers are claimed to have considered Rangers boss Steven Gerrard as their next manager.

The club are now firmly in the process of landing a replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo after he departed last week.

Plenty of names have been mentioned over the past seven days or so, and The Athletic have brought forth a new one this weekend.

They reported yesterday that Gerrard has been considered, after he guided Rangers to a stunning league title over in Scotland.

Not only did he do that, but he also masterminded an unbeaten campaign.

The Athletic add that he has not been formally approached by Wolves.

 

Gerrard would be an unlikely appointment

It would be a huge surprise to see Gerrard become the next Wolves manager.

He has done tremendous work at Rangers and is absolutely revered at Ibrox.

He seems totally committed to the project there, and it’s hard to see him wanting to walk away with the club now back in the Champions League.

Clearly, he is a big managerial talent. People can say what they want about the Scottish Premiership, but to preside over an unbeaten season is an amazing feat.

He would be an exciting appointment for Wolves but it just doesn’t seem all that likely, and it seems that Bruno Lage is very much the frontrunner anyway.
