Gerrard linked with shock Besiktas move - would it benefit the Liverpool legend?

Steven Gerrard has reportedly emerged as a shock managerial target for Turkish giants Besiktas, who are mulling over whether to sack under-fire boss Abdullah Avci.

The Liverpool icon has been in the hotseat at Ibrox since 2018, and guided them to second-place in the Scottish Premiership last season.

This season, Rangers have had a solid start, winning seven of their eight games so far and sit on top of the table with 21 points, two ahead of Celtic.

Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty has impressed manager Steven Gerrard in training, according to Football Insider.

But Rangers could be set to lose their manager, with Turkish giants Besiktas now watching him with interest.

BeIN Sports Turkey reports that the new president could sack current manager Abdullah Avci after a awful start to the 2019/20 campaign.

One (0.3 meter) to 2 feet (0.6 meters) of snow was expected to accumulate with winds gusting up to 65 miles per hour (105 kph). An official with Manitoba Agriculture said the storm wasn't expected to have a major impact on farmers.

Steven Gerrard was recently linked with one day replacing Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United, but he is now being tipped to potentially join Besiktas, too.

Besiktas have been poor this season, and are now 12th in the Super Lig.

"I heard one of the strong candidates, Ahmet Nur Cebi, has a different name in his mind", he said on BeIN Sports.

Rangers' assistant manager Michael Beale has explained that Steven Gerrard has a long-term aim to take over at his former club Liverpool, but he insists as things stand Jürgen Klopp is still the right man for the job. Also, I know Sergen Yalcin could replace Abdullah Avci if he wins the race.

With Rangers aiming to win the Scottish Premiership table and progress to the knockout round of the Europa League, the 23-year-old will get his chances, and he has to make the majority.
