London, May 4 (IANS) Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard was on Friday appointed manager of Scottish football club Rangers on a four-year deal.
Gerrard, 37, replaced Graeme Murty, who was placed in interim charge following the October sacking of Pedro Caixinha, the BBC reported.
"I am honoured to become the next manager of Rangers," Gerrard told the club's website.
"I have enormous respect for this football club, and its history and tradition. I can't wait to start this new journey at Rangers as we look to build on the many successes that this club has achieved."
Gerrard was a youth coach at Liverpool.
In a career spanning over 19 years, Gerrard made 710 appearances and won nine trophies for Liverpool and was capped 114 times by England.
Gerrard has skippered the national team at three of the six major tournaments at which he played and was Liverpool skipper for almost 12 years.
He retired in 2016 after a spell with Major League Soccer (MLS) heavyweights LA Galaxy.
