Steven Gerrard tipped to quit Rangers for Arsenal if Unai Emery gets sacked

Steven Gerrard would quit Rangers for Arsenal if Unai Emery is sacked by the Gunners.

That is according to former Manchester United striker Alan Brazil, who believes the Liverpool legend would copy Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers in quitting the Scottish Premiership for the Premier League.

Emery is under pressure at the Emirates Stadium after presiding over a miserable start to the campaign.

The Spaniard will be on the brink if Arsenal lose to Rodgers’ Foxes on Saturday, which would leave them nine points off the top-four pace.

Gerrard has impressed as Rangers boss since pitching up at Ibrox in June 2018.

But talkSPORT host Brazil believes he would jump at the chance to test his skills at Arsenal.

“If the Arsenal job comes up, see you later,” Brazil said on Thursday.

“He'll do a Brendan [Rodgers].”

A move to Arsenal is unlikely, however, with Gerrard fancied by man to return to Anfield to manage Liverpool in the future.

Current Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has tipped the 39-year-old to succeed him when he eventually quits Merseyside.

“If Liverpool were to sack me tomorrow, then maybe Kenny would be the first choice to replace me, but they would probably bring Stevie down from Glasgow,” Klopp told FourFourTwo.

“If you ask who should follow me, I’d say Stevie. I help him whenever I can.”

Meanwhile, Rangers boosted their hopes of reaching the Europa League knockout rounds by securing a 2-0 win against Porto last night.

Alfredo Morelos and Steven Davis were on target in the second half at Ibrox to secure three crucial points.

Rangers are joint top of Group G with Young Boys – three points ahead of Feyenoord and Porto with two games left to play.

Rangers have suffered just three defeats in 26 continental matches under Gerrard’s management.

Gerrard said: "We beat a good team tonight and we've beaten them comfortably.

"They have good players and over two games we have dominated three halves.

"I thought Porto paid us a big compliment with their set-up, the formation and the personnel they picked.

"It caused us problems and for the first 20-30 minutes their quick movement and system rattled us a bit. But once we came to terms with it we grew into the game."
