Injury hampered Smith’s career at Ibrox but he made over 100 appearances across two spells

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.

HBO’s mental health warnings are what TV streaming services need
The network is also introducing a shortform series called "Doctor Commentaries", in which cognitive behavioral therapist Dr. Ali Mattu breaks down relevant scenes from HBO shows and explain them from a mental health perspective.

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.
