Steven Gerrard could just become Liverpool’s next permanent manager – but he’s got plenty of competition for the coveted role.
Bookmakers Betfair have installed the Anfield icon at 5/2 to replace Jurgen Klopp, who is odds-on to be the next top-flight boss axed.
Gerrard’s Rangers boast an 18-point lead over arch-rivals Celtic and look set clinch the Scottish Premiership title.
But Gerrard trails assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders.
The Reds No.2 is favourite at 6/4 having helped Klopp and Co. to their sixth Champions League and the Premier League title last season.
Another Anfield great in Xabi Alonso is third in the betting market at 11/2.
Liverpool Next Manager Odds – Betfair
Pep Lijnders – 6/4
Steven Gerrard – 5/2
Xabi Alonso – 11/2
Julian Nagelsmann – 10/1
Rafa Benitez – 16/1
Thomas Tuchel – 20/1
Diego Simeone – 20/1
James Milner – 25/1
Massimiliano Allegri – 25/1
Klopp has suffered three consecutive defeats in charge having fallen to Brighton, Manchester City and Leicester in recent weeks.
Liverpool, who have 24 fewer points than they had at this stage last season are now fourth in the division 13 points behind leaders City.
And Klopp says any hopes of defending their Premier League crown are over.
