Steven Gerrard was presented to the press and fans as the new manager of Rangers on Friday.

The former Liverpool captain joins the Scottish club on a four-year deal and is set to take over, alongside new assistant Gary McAllister, in June.

He was unveiled at Ibrox in front of a crowd of supporters earlier today.

These were the best jokes as Steven Gerrard is appointed as the new Rangers manager:

Respect Steven Gerrard for doing what others with an ego refuse to do and begin management in the lower leagues.

Can’t believe Steven Gerrard could be part of a Cup game at Queen’s Park just 11 years after playing in a Champions League Final…

Looks like Steven Gerrard is to become the next manager of Rangers. His first job is to stop Brendan Rodgers from winning the title. Wouldn't be the 1st time would it?

Steven Gerrard becoming Rangers manager feels far more like something that would happen in Football Manager than real life.

Steven Gerrard looks less like he's being unveiled as a new manager and more like he's been asked to answer questions at a Government Select Committee. pic.twitter.com/RCXX6vpS8s

Rangers now have a bigger name manager than Celtic?


Steven Gerrard = 13 letters
