Danny Murphy: 'Steven Gerrard won't join Celtic with Brendan Rodgers as manager'

Whatever decision Gerrard makes in the short-term it is apparent Liverpool will be his eventual destination at some point down the line

The Liverpool legend recently announced that he will not be extending his contract at MLS club, LA Galaxy, and that he is still assessing all options available to him on and off the field.

It is unclear whether Gerrard intends to hang up his boots or seek another playing role but he is one of several candidates to take over in Milton Keynes following Karl Robinson's dismissal in October.

Former Chelsea midfielder Roberto di Matteo and ex-England global Paul Ince were both appointed as manager of a side that has spent 10 of its 13 years in existence in the third tier of English football. He left the club after a awful start to the season and the club struggling in 19 position in League 1.

Gerrard's exit from the Galaxy was confirmed on Tuesday, but the player revealed he had been thinking about his next move for some time.

"And of course there's a natural look at Celtic because of the size of the club, and it's a club he admired, and also I have some of my former players here working with me".

Both parties would obviously be taking a big risk if Gerrard were to be appointed manager.

"Celtic are going to in the league and I think they are going to win the treble", Hay wrote in The Glasgow Evening Times. "We might not play it at the same speed or accuracy but I want our supporters to recognise that football".

"I'm trying to build something here that's based around the team - a dynamic team, an aggressive team", said Rodgers.

Interim boss Richie Barker will remain at the helm for the Memorial Stadium clash with no appointment believed to be close.

Personally, I'd love to see Gerrard back at Liverpool, but it'll also be interesting to see him forge his own path in management, and starting small is the right way to do it.
