I've held initial talks with Rangers, and the plan is to pick them up again in a couple of days' time.

He has had talks and they were positive.

Gerrard will likely be a pundit on BT Sport on Wednesday for Liverpool's Champions League semi-final clash with Roma.

Gerrard represents quite the risk for a Rangers side who were linked with tried-and-tested figures such as Derek McInnes and Alex McLeish after Pedro Caixinha's axing in October.

At the weekend, Murty was in charge as Celtic defeated Rangers 5-0 at Celtic Park to claim their seventh consecutive Scottish league title.

Sunday's loss to Celtic, coming just a fortnight after a 4-0 drubbing by the Hoops in the William Hill Scottish Cup semi-finals, proved a humiliation too far for former Reading and Scotland defender Murty.

Assistant coaches Jimmy Nicholl and Jonatan Johansson will take charge of Gers' three remaining Ladbrokes Premiership fixtures, starting with Kilmarnock's visit to Ibrox on Saturday.

Even though family members have stakes in how that information gets shared, they typically aren't involved in the consent process. Prosecutors say Joseph DeAngelo carried out his most violent crimes in the months after he was sacked for shoplifting in 1979.

The 37-year-old is said to now be in talks with the club.

Murty was informed of Rangers' decision in a meeting with managing director Stewart Robertson at Ibrox.

Murty's tenure at Rangers has been under severe scrutiny in recent weeks, with Kenny Miller and Lee Wallace having been suspended following an alleged disagreement with the manager in the aftermath of the cup defeat to Celtic.

"If he feels this is the right opportunity then I'm sure he'll look at it, but I haven't spoken to him on it".

Nicholl, 61, will take the lead role in trying to lead the Ibrox squad through a testing trio of matches.

Rangers (65 points) are third in the Premiership table three points behind Aberdeen, with only goal difference separating them from fourth-placed Hibernian.
