Steven Gerrard has agreed a deal to become Rangers’ new manager, according to reports.
It is understood that he will arrive in Glasgow later today to officially sign his contract.
The former Liverpool and England skipper, currently in charge of the Reds’ Under-18 squad, is the bookmakers’ favourite to land the post.
He will replace Graeme Murty, who was placed in interim charge following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha last October.
Former under-20s coach Murty was due to remain in charge until the end of the season but was relieved of his duties after meeting with Stewart Robertson on Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, Gerrard also confirmed he was in talks with Rangers.
He said: “There is (interest). I’ve held positive talks with them. I’m busy now for a couple of days but I will pick it up on Thursday and we’ll see if we can progress it”.
Fans have expressed their delight at the news on Twitter.
Brilliant move. Risks attached for sure but given the dross we’ve been served up since 2012 this is a huge and much welcomed lift for @RangersFC. Gerrard v Rodgers is a big lift for Scottish football in general.
