STEVEN GERRRARD is poised to sign a contract extension as Rangers manager.

The Ibrox boss, who took over in the summer of 2018 from caretaker Graeme Murty following the sacking of Pedro Caixinha, is understood to have agreed terms on a new deal until 2024.

Sporting director Ross Wilson, who arrived in September from Southampton, and managing director Stewart Robertson have moved quickly to seal Gerrard’s future at the club.

Outgoing chairman Dave King recently spoke glowingly of Gerrard, who is understood to be very happy at the Glasgow club, and the work he has done since taking up his first managerial role.

Under the 39-year-old Liverpool legend, Gers are just two points behind leaders and champions Celtic and face the Parkhead men in the Betfred League Cup Final at Hampden tomorrow afternoon with the first piece of domestic silverware of the season up for grabs.

The ex-England skipper signed a four-year contract when he arrived last year and began his first season with a 12-game unbeaten run before finishing runners-up to Neil Lennon’s side who are looking for nine in a row in this campaign.

In the Europa League this season, victory over Swiss outfit Young Boys at Ibrox on Thursday will seal qualification from Group G into the knock-out stages next year.
