Jurgen Klopp believes even Celtic fans will be wowed by Steven Gerrard's Rangers appointment.

Thousands of Gers supporters were allowed inside Ibrox this afternoon following the club's announcement that the Liverpool legend had agreed a four-year deal to take over as manager. I am well aware of the history and the tradition of this football club.

"We still have a season to finish here and hopefully finish it well with more success and get a good break and look forward to the challenge of next year".

'He was extremely impressive throughout our negotiations and we are convinced that he has the necessary knowledge and temperament to lead the club to the success we all desire.

However, the infamous slip from Gerrard during the Reds' defeat to Chelsea all but handed Manchester City the title that season. Being Scottish he knows what the club is all about, he's got that experience where maybe I'm a bit short where we stand right now.

"He had incredible quality as a player and, like I say, that level of professionalism he had in his career - that's what made him the great player he was".

Asked about being a managerial novice, Gerrard said: 'I can't do anything about having no experience.

The 37-year-old has been tasked with building a side capable of challenging Celtic, who have dominated Scottish football in recent years under former Liverpool boss Rodgers.

"When you work with big clubs you have to handle that pressure".

"I haven't spoken to Brendan recently regarding this role at all".

"My assistant will be Gary McAllister, he's a long-time friend of mine and I played alongside him at Liverpool. I wish him all the best because it will be fantastic for football to have him as a manager and one day challenge him".

'He's a long-time friend of mine.

The arrival of the former England midfielder will restore some star power to a league that has found it increasingly hard to attract and hold onto top players against the booming television revenues of the Premier League.

"He ticks the box where I'm not the most experienced so as a partnership I feel that that'll be very strong", Gerrard explained.
