The report claims that the Gers boss is keen to remain with Rangers, and win his first trophy with the club next season, as they look to. challenge Celtic for the Scottish Premiership title.
Rangers finished second in the league this season, and they were unable to top Neil Lennon’s side winning yet another league title at Celtic Park.
The Blues are searching for a new manager, after it was revealed that Pep Clotet will leave his role in charge of the Championship strugglers at the end of the 2019/20 season.
Birmingham are currently sat 16th in the second tier standings, and are without a win in their last six league matches, which will make for frustrating reading for thew club’s supporters.
Clotet’s side did pick up a valuable point against promotion-chasing West Brom last weekend though, and will be hoping they can find a much-needed three points on Saturday, when they take on relegation-threatened Hull City.

He’s definitely made the right call here.
Even though I expect to see Gerrard managing in English football in the future, the Birmingham job won’t have been one that appealed to him.
