'I don't welcome it' - Steven Gerrard hits back over Jurgen Klopp rumours at Liverpool

Steven Gerrard admits he does not welcome the speculation linking him with replacing Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

The Liverpool legend, heading into his fourth season in charge of Rangers, secured the club's first top-flight title in 10 years back in March.

The former England international took up his first senior managerial role when he moved to Scotland in 2018 after spending time working under Klopp at the Reds' Academy.

The success of Gerrard’s side last season ended a prolonged period of dominance for Celtic, who, at the start of last season, were aiming to win their 10th successive league title.

But the way the 40-year-old has revived the Glasgow giants in his first senior managerial role has got many speculating as to whether he could succeed Klopp at Anfield in the future.

But when asked about the prospect of one day becoming Liverpool, or even England boss, Gerrard was quick to play down the links.

"I can't control any media speculation about my position," he told ESPN when asked about the links.

"I don't welcome it, I don't add to it. All I do is focus on the job I have here and I'm very flattered and grateful for the position.

"I'm very happy here, I've said it on numerous occasions, it's a huge club, I'm settled, I'm happy and I can continue to develop and keep trying to push this team forward."

Ethan Ennis has confirmed his move to Manchester United after leaving Liverpool Academy this summer.

And he has now revealed that he has agreed a deal with Liverpool's bitter rivals United in a social media post accompanied by pictures from Old Trafford.

The caption read: "I am delighted to announce that I have signed for Manchester United. Grateful for this opportunity, can't wait to get started."

Liverpool are now owed a development fee for Ennis, which may be decided by a tribunal should the two clubs fail to reach an agreement.
