According to the Northern Echo, Newcastle are confident of getting Rangers manager Steven Gerrard to come to their club this summer.
Unfortunately, until the Magpies get a new manager that isn’t ours, such rumours are going to persist.
It makes me wonder, though, what they think they can offer the former Liverpool great to prise him away – look at the state they are in.
Even so, the report claims that they are confident that they can get something going and so we have to share it with you, even if we believe – like many of you reading this – that the boss will not be heading off this summer.
He’s started to put a really decent squad together now and Celtic are floundering, it would surely have to be a massive offer from the Magpies for him to even contemplate it.
With Mike Ashley at the helm, too, surely no such thing is going to come about…
