Steven Gerrard signs new Rangers contract less than a week after narrowly losing to Celtic in League Cup final

Steven Gerrard has signed a new contract with Rangers running until the summer of 2024, the Scottish Premiership club have confirmed.

Gerrard, the Liverpool legend, guided the Gers to a second-placed finish in the Premiership last season, in what was his first ever campaign as a manager.

And he was unlucky to not win his first piece of silverware at Ibrox last weekend, with his side narrowly losing to Celtic in the League Cup final largely due to the heroics of goalkeeper Fraser Forster, who saved a penalty from Alfredo Morelos.

And his fine work north of the border has been rewarded with a new deal running until 2024.

“I’m delighted to be extending my stay at this fantastic football club,” said Gerrard.

“When Dave King [the Rangers chairman] approached me about the possibility of extending my contract with Rangers, it was a very easy decision to make because I’m very happy and feel that we are building something special together at the Club.
